All told, 20 Top 40 singles line up alongside six album-track favorites, the songs all instantly recognized by name. VG+ (Very Good Plus): This record has clearly been played before, but has only a moderate reduction in sound quality, despite a possible slight loss of shine and some surface marks. the only albums I want in full are Storm Front which doesn't have an audiophile release (KG did a great job with the Friday Music cut but the pressing house sucks) and The Stranger which I have the incredible 5. With the exception of maybe leaving off "Honesty" and "Leave The Tender Moment Alone" (I dont think the album suffers at all from leaving these two off) this is one of the best greatest hits packages put together for an artist.Very Good Plus (VG+) – A few further faults are acceptable, but nothing that really compromises the record visually or audibly.

As for mastering, the sound quality is a tad warm and I thought that dynamics were just a bit constricted, I wanted the music to really let loose but, on the whole, the sonics remain very attractive. The only time that Phil Woods performed on a Billy Joel recording was the song "Just the Way You Are" in 1977. Billy Joel Greatest Hits is one of the most brilliant albums ever, hailing from New York state, Billy Joel worked the East-Coast club scene until his greatness led to bigger venues.
