Legacy Recordings proudly celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Billy Joel’s breakout album “The Stranger” with the release of two special editions — a 2 CD Legacy Edition and a Deluxe Limited Edition including 2 CDs plus a bonus DVD — of the best-selling multi-platinum collection which catapulted Joel into the upper ranks of pop music superstardom. Each of the 30th Anniversary editions of “The Stranger” is available online and in stores today.
Originally released in September 1977, Billy Joel’s fifth studio album, “The Stranger,” marked the first of Joel’s highly successful collaborations with producer Phil Ramone, whose mastery of the recording studio provided a sublime sonic context for Joel’s timeless songs and classic performances. “I was very happy that we chose Phil Ramone,” said Billy Joel in a recent interview for the 30th Anniversary edition of “The Stranger.” “He got it right away.”
The resulting collection became one of the top-selling albums of the year (peaking at #2 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart); won two Grammys (Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Just The Way You Are,” “The Stranger” was nominated for Album of the Year); overtook Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” as Columbia Records Top Selling Album of the time, and generated four indelible singles — “Just The Way You Are (#1 Adult Contemporary, #3 Pop Singles); “Only The Good Die Young” (#24 Pop Singles); “She’s Always A Woman” (#2 Adult Contemporary, #17 Pop Singles); and “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)” (#17 Pop Singles) — that remain radio staples to this day.
