Released in October of 1978, 52nd Street was Billy Joel’s sixth studio, and his first to go to number one on the Billboard charts. The album’s success was due in no small part to the three hit singles it contained – ‘My Way’, ‘Big Shot’, and ‘Honesty’. 52nd Street also won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1979.
This week, as part of The Billy Joel Channel, Billy Joel himself is taking listeners on a guided tour of the classic album in its entirety.
