1. EASY MONEY
1. UPTOWN GIRL
Contrary to its title, An Innocent Man isn’t necessarily an album about a man. No less than seven of its ten songs are about the fairer sex, and in specific the fairest specimens of all. Hits such as ´Uptown Girl’ (a respectful nod to Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons) , ‘The Longest Time’ and ‘Careless Talk’ were serenades to the super model that would become Joel’s wife: Christie Brinkley. (We’ll just gloss over the fact that he dated and sings about Elle McPherson on ‘This Night’ as well… Some guys have all the luck).
With all its carefree Doo Wop, Soul and Pop, Billie Joel’s ninth studio album is the culmination of a classic period, and Music On Vinyl is proud to give it its first European vinyl release in almost thirty years!
