EP 083 – Live At The Great American Music Hall – 1975 & Record Store Day (with John Jackson)

In late 2021, a hidden gem in Billy Joel’s history was released as part of a nine-record Box Set The Vinyl Collection Volume One. The two-LP Live at The Great American Music Hall was recorded in 1975 over several nights in San Francisco. It captured the band in transition before Billy kicked off recording sessions for Turnstiles.


Now, fans can snag a standalone copy on limited-edition, opaque gray-colored vinyl — if they can find it. 


The album will be available as part of Record Store Day on April 22, 2023. Limited to 6,700 copies, it’s for sale only at participating independent stores nationwide. But, not all stores will have it in stock.


In this episode, we’ll cover everything about Record Store Day and how to increase your chances of getting a copy without paying more later. Then, we’ll do a track-by-track commentary. Finally, we’ll explore the recording’s history and significance with Billy’s archivist, John Jackson. 

Join us as we dig deep into the Record Store Day release of Billy Joel: Live at The Great American Music Hall – 1975.
