  • Arranger: Robert Freedman.
  • Something of a companion piece to Billy Joel's greatest hits collections, this exhaustive box set comprises four CDs (and a bonus DVD) of rarities, B-sides, demos, covers, and recordings that have fallen between the cracks in Joel's discography. Those looking for the studio versions of "My Life," "Just the Way You Are," and "Uptown Girl" won't find them here; this collection is a different animal altogether. With an eye toward representing Joel as an adventurous craftsman and tireless reviser, MY LIVES is packed with one-off concert performances and intimate, unreleased demos (which often differ radically from the well-known final versions) that paint an interesting portrait of Joel's creative process.
  • Disc one stretches back to Joel's pre-solo career, including songs by his garage-pop band the Hassles and his snicker-inducing heavy metal project Atilla. But it is with Joel's PIANO MAN demos that one can hear the artist finding his feet ("Oyster Bay" is one of the set's highlights). While discs three and four may contain too many covers (do we really need to hear Joel's rendition of "When You Wish Upon a Star?"), there are some interesting selections of his classical work from the 2000s. Despite its shortcomings, MY LIVES provides valuable insight into Joel's evolution as a songwriter and performer, which makes it intriguing for casual fans, and essential for devotees.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the one and only Billy Joel. No other artist has have released songs so powerful, so amazing in their whole carrier.
Billy Joel has been releasing CDs since the 70's. Every album has been a must own since all his songs are just so good.

And here we have most of his songs in a 4 CD Set.
Piano Man, New York State Of Mind, She's Got A Way, River Of Dreams, It's Still Rock And Roll To Me, We Didn't Start The Fire, My Life, Movin' Out - Anthony's Song, Honesty, You May Be Right, Goodnight Saigon, New York State Of Mind are great! And so are his other songs.

Billy Joel is and will always be number 1 in my book as the best music artist of all time.

If your going to own only one CD, then this is it. A CD Set including the whole collection of a legend in music!

5/5 - There is no Better CD
