BILLY JOEL – THE NYLON CURTAIN
On numbered limited edition 180-gram 45 RPM double LP from Mobile Fidelity

Singer-songwriter channels John Lennon on musically ambitious and socially poignant set

Having triumphantly asserted himself as a take-no-mess singer-songwriter on 1980’s hard-rocking Glass Houses, Billy Joel continues to push his creative impulses on The Nylon Curtain, a fascinating song cycle that pays tribute to John Lennon and stands as the most ambitious project of his career. Enriched by sweeping orchestral arrangements and socially conscious lyrics, the 1982 set addresses unemployment, war, and realities of the Reagan era with exacting precision. Insightful and clever, the album’s Baby Boomer-themed narratives continue to resonate.

The Nylon Curtain is mastered from the original master tapes and made available on fully transparent Hybrid SACD. The myriad nuances amidst Phil Ramone’s crisp production assume greater tonality, texture, and detail. What was a very good-sounding album is now an audiophile-caliber favorite, with transparency, clarity, and microdynamics enhancing the poignant connection between Joel’s expressiveness and the listener’s emotions. The Nylon Curtain is now an even more personal experience, a brilliant distillation of sadness, loss, hope, and anger.
