The stranger no more

Okay, okay, this is a picture disc. Yes, I have bought other picture discs for the novelty of having a photo-image on the disc. Most do not play so well (notable surface noise, skipping, etc.). But WOW, this release from Brookvale records, really impressed me! Quite playing surface and great audio dynamics, including improved bass. I still have the original Columbia vinyl release of this album, which is quite decent, but this picture disc amazingly sounds better. Don't just buy this for the thrill of having a keepsake of (arguably) Billy Joel's best album, get it for the improved sound quality too! I hope Brookvale Records represses more classic albums like this in such high quality.
