This song is originally from Billy's first solo album, Cold Spring Harbor, released November 1971. A fantastic live version of this song is on Songs In The Attic, Billy Joel's first live album, which was recorded in June - July 1980 during the Glass Houses tour and was released September 10, 1981. Songs In The Attic features songs from Cold Spring Harbor in a better form, since Billy's first album was sped up in studio and he "sounded like a chipmunk." He wasn't happy with the sound of the album, so Songs In The Attic was a way to make it better and sound more raw and personal.
