BILLY JOEL RELEASING 1987 RUSSIAN DOC AND CONCERT CD IN DELUXE PACKAGE
Billy Joel will release a deluxe edition of A Matter Of Trust: The Bridge To Russia documentary on May 20th. The collection will be issued as a two-CD set, a DVD/Blu-ray package, and in a deluxe edition that collects both the audio and visual elements together. Rolling Stone reported that the deluxe edition contains the documentary -- which premiered last month on Showtime -- "along with a book of rare photos and new liner notes."
The original live album chronicling Billy's Russian visit, 1987's Kohuept -- which translates to "Concert" -- only featured 12 songs, but the new CD -- A Matter Of Trust: The Bridge To Russia - The Music, features newly remastered sound with 11 additional tracks -- including a bonus rehearsal version of the Beatles' classic "She Loves You."
Although Billy Joel's primary instrument has always been the baby grand piano, he revealed that when recording 1980's Glass Houses, he felt the need to stretch out with different keyboard, as his act started to fill the arena and "enormo-domes" across the world. As witnessed in A Matter Of Trust: The Bridge To Russia -- Billy didn't pay a second thought to flipping the electric piano over when his lighting director kept spotlighting the audience who immediately froze from being singled out.
