  1. Wouldn’t you think the MOST essential of ALL BJ’s songs would be “Just The Way You Are”? and it seems to be missing on all of his DVD’s so far..including this!!!

  2. This DVD has my most favorite Billy Joes songs. The songs I used to listen to endlessly as a teenager and those that have so much memories associated with.

    The picturization are like watching slapstick comedy. Please don’t ruin your memories watching these unless you want to ruin these songs for you.

  3. I was disappointed. It was like watching an MTV special video series on Billy Joel. I’ve owned it for years, but only watched it once. I’ll probably sell it on FeeBay.

  4. I reeally love a lot of great artists that have been not just influential, but artists that have such great appeal for pop music. Yet, while there are so many great acts out right now who really don’t seem to have as much in influence as they did back in the 70’s and 80’s. For a true legend like Billy Joel, his music still keeps coming back, despite his departure from recording any well-received songs in over a decade. Still, that hasn’t stopped his catalog of videos and songs from coming back with another collection of winners. Yet, when there does come to a really well put music video DVD reflection of Billy’s music, it does miss the shot here.

    Billy Joel: The Essential Video Collection is a well put reflection of Billy’s best music videos from the 70’s and 80’s. The collection of songs here is very well put and remastered well. This DVD music video collection features great Billy Joel videos like Tell Her About It, the classic soulful Uptown Girl, Honesty, The Longest Time, You’re Only Human (Second Wind) and other greats. Yet this music video collection does miss quite a lot when it comes to his later videos like The River Of Dreams, Lenningrad, the classic retrospective video We Didn’t Start The Fire, I Go To Extremes, the dramatic video for The Downeaster Alexa, or No Man’s Land.

    I still think it is just a shame Billy Joel hasn’t came back into the pop music scene, because his music just remains as pure classic. As for this DVD collection, I really would only suggest this, if you purchase the Greatest Hits Volume III music video collection to go with it. Otherwise, there would just be so much in videos missing.

  5. I should have looked closer at the title of the DVD. I thought it was clips from Billy Joel in concert playing these songs, not the MTV videos, (with a few live performances thrown in). I grew up on MTV, seeing these videos brings back the memories and how thankful we should be for the way videos look today. The sound is great, even on my older stereo without Dolby 5.1.

    For Billy Joel fans, this is a good buy if you want it in your collections. If you prefer him live on DVD, look somewhere else.
