Billy Joel - An Innocent Man (1983)

Billy Joel - An Innocent Man

  This was Billy Joel's last good album capturing him at a very emotional high in his life.   The music on "An Innocent Man" is noticeably more upbeat than the previous albums.

   The album featured three Billboard Top 10 hit singles: "Tell Her About It", which reached #1, "Uptown Girl", which peaked at #3 and "An Innocent Man", which peaked at #10.

 "An Innocent Man" is really a concept album in ode to American popular music of  the late '50s and early '60s...Do-Wop and Soul all surrounded by Joel's pop affinities.
