THE STRANGER was the first megahit,52ND STREET was the second,and this one,GLASS HOUSES is the Piano Man's third. Released in March 1980,this album brought ths first hit that same month,YOU MAY BE RIGHT. Other hits include SOMETIMES A FANTASY(not on GREATEST HITS VOLUME 1 AND VOLUME 2),the adult contemporary DON'T ASK ME WHY,and the ass-kicking IT'S STILL ROCK AND ROLL TO ME. The front cover shows Billy with his back towards the lens of the camera from which that photo was taken,with a rock in his hand,about to throw it through a pane of window glass. The back cover shows Billy behind the broken pane,dressed in different clothes. While promoting this album,Billy recorded SONGS IN THE ATTIC,his first live album,released in 1981.
