Product Description

Product Description

Fittingly for an album celebrating early- to mid-'60s pop and blue-eyed soul, An Innocent Man (1983) spun off six hit singles. Between the social concerns of The Nylon Curtain and this record's bopping tempos and blaring horns, Joel was at a peak of craftsmanship--the ultimate proof perhaps being the Chipmunks' rendition of "The Longest Time," which did absolutely nothing to diminish the song's winning charm. Much of America's enduring affection for Joel stems from this disc, and rightly so. --Rickey Wright

Format: Audio CD
I remember the first time I heard "Tell Her About It." It was premiered on Friday Night Videos, in long form. The video was a spoof the Ed Sullivan Show, with Billy as the performer.
This album, along with Synchronicity, Punch the Clock and Cargo helped define my senior year of high school, but this was the best. Mr. Joel delves into his musical heros and spins tunes that makes this sound like a concept album ode to 1962. Some songs, like Innocent Man, Leave A Tender Moment Alone, and Keeping the Faith still bring chills of memories of innocence lost and new things found.

I understand the objections people have to this album. It is somewhat conventional, and it perhaps lacks the lyrical deepness of earlier work (it is certainly the antithesis of the album that preceded it, "The Nylon Curtain", which was Billy's deepest emotional work. Actually, one could make the argument that this is early Beatles to the Curtain's late Beatles influences). However, context here is everything. Billy wrote this album very quickly when he was falling madly in love. Each word, each note is as deleriously happy as a Shakespeare comedy. If you have ever been in love, you can appreciate this for what it is.

Melodically, this is inspired, transporting us back to a simpler time, and each song is reminiscent of a doo-wop street choir sitting on the steps in Brooklyn (as depicted on the back cover). Don't look for double-entendres, or analogy here. As Billy sings on "Keepin' The Faith", "gonna listen to my 45s / Ain't it wonderful to be alive / when the rock n roll plays". If you can listen to this album, without tapping your toes along with it, you must be dead.

One of Billy Joel's most lighthearted and fun records, "An Innocent Man" is also one of his most popular, a tribute to 60s pop music which spun off an amazing seven hit singles.
It's fun and carefree, and features delightful, superbly melodious doo-wop like "The Longest Time" and the title track, pop gems like "Uptown Girl", and horn-laden soul songs like "Christie Lee" and "Keeping The Faith".
There isn't a single truly weak song on this album, and while it may seem lightweight to some, it is actually a great piece of craftsmanship which Billy Joel has never been able to match.

I remember when this album came out in 1983 or so - I was heavily into my top-40 radio listening days - I would listen late at night and would scour the radio dial for the songs I liked the most...One of these was the great doo-wop styled Billy Joel song, "The Longest Time" which, at the time was a big hit. It wasn't long before I went out and bought this at the local record store.
Now I had been listening to a LOT of Billy Joel at this time in my life - he was my most recent musical discovery - and I purchased this record with much anticipation. On listening to it, I have to admit some disappointment, because it really paled in comparison to Billy Joel's previous four albums which were all really good. On further listens - and this remains my view - I decided that this wasn't exactly a bad album...in fact, there are several songs here that are very good. It's just that it's not my favorite of Billy Joel's and suffers in comparison with his other albums.
My favorite song from this album remains "The Longest Time" which is just a beautiful doo-wop harmony masterpiece - evocative, I suppose, of Billy Joel's musical youth. Other really good songs include the catchy hit "Tell Her About It", the nostalgic and pretty "Keeping The Faith", and the album opener (which doesn't, to this listener, keep in the '50s theme and is the song that rocks the most on this album) "Easy Money". "Uptown Girl" is another song that was a big hit - it's sort of lightweight, but it's catchy and the video was fun.
There are also some songs which I don't like too much...These include the title track which is smoothly sung, but doesn't grip this listener. I detest the song "This Time" which borrows the theme from one of Beethoven's sonatas ("Pathetique"?).

This album remained on the charts through early 1985. TELL HER ABOUT IT was this first hit from the album. In the video,Billy is a guest on a spoof of The Ed Sullivan Show. The first track,EASY MONEY was used as the theme to the movie of the same title,starring Rodney Dangerfield. The title track,another hit,later was reused on GREATEST HITS VOLUME 3,released in 1997. THE LONGEST TIME,another hit,was probably inspired by the Tymes' SO IN LOVE. THIS NIGHT is another late 50's-early 60's recording soundalike. The music in the chorus for THIS NIGHT was written by the late great classical music composer Ludwig von Beethoven. UPTOWN GIRL was written for Billy's girlfriend supermodel Christie Brinkley whom he had not yet married. She appeared in the video as a motorcycle's passenger. CHRISTIE LEE is another ode to Brinkley. CARELESS TALK is an OK song. Jazz great Toots Thielmans plays the harmonica on LEAVE A TENDER MOMENT ALONE. It sounds just like the one Stevie Wonder plays. KEEPING THE FAITH is a cool R&B song.
