Storm Front by Billy Joel
As another definitive installment in the Billy Joel 180 Gram Audiophile Series, Friday Music announces the release of his 1989 tour de force release Storm Front. Recorded with ForeignerĂs Mick Jones as producer, JoelĂs new direction proved him correct as the album sailed to the #1 spot on the charts and maintained massive radio play with five huge hit singles for the better part of two years! Featuring the #1 smash We DidnĂt Start The Fire, the rocker I Got To Extremes and the tender ballad And So It Goes, Storm Front was a pivotal release for the Piano Man, and continues to be one of the most beloved albums in his legendary catalog.
As is the case with Friday Music's other highly successful Billy Joel recordings, Storm Front was mastered impeccably from the original Epic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray at AcousTech, and pressed at RTI with Sony Music. This limited edition release also includes a very rare gatefold cover featuring all of the original artwork, plus a poly bag for the cover and a poly lined sleeve.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
