Billy Joels third hit LP Streetlife Serenade will always be revered as one of the classic early albums from this superstar singer/songwriter. Released in 1974, he was now successfully entrenched with a record buying audience who were hipping others to the great new sounds of the Piano Man. As his tours became sell outs and airplay was flourishing with his new single The Entertainer, Streetlife Serenade soon became the album of choice for a plethora of radio stations nationwide.
Streetlife Serenade shows this New York natives love affair with Los Angeles, where he was living and playing at the time, prior to his rise to superstar fame. Forty years later these tunes still resonate with his fans and Friday Music is proud to be a part of the celebration with one of his greatest masterworks Streetlife Serenade.
