323 – Billy Joel – Scenes From An Italian Restaurant (1977)
Written by Billy Joel
Produced by Phil Ramone
Label – CBS

Inspired by Side 2 of The Beatles “Abbey Rd” album, “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant” magically combines three distinct songs into one sweeping modern day symphony. Along with valuable support from producer Phil Ramone, Joel gathers together the unfinished songs, all unique in melody, tempo and subject matter and incredibly moulds them seamlessly into a short story of old friends reminiscing at a local Italian eatery. A true masterpiece in both scope and execution.
