The Collection: Piano Man/52nd Street/Kohuept: Live in Leningrad [2005 Reissue]

by Billy Joel

Overview

This Columbia triple-disc package replaces the 2002 long-box set, Collection, which brought together two classic Billy Joel records -- Piano Man and 52nd Street -- with a third, Kohuept: Live in Leningrad, one of Joel's most famous live performances. Unfortunately, other than the albums themselves being classics, there are no bonus tracks or any additional material, so unless one wants to do some one-stop shopping for these three albums, there is really no reason not to stick with the single-disc releases.
