Billy Joel proved with his previous album Piano Man [MOVLP521] that he could be a lyrical bard and a commercial hit. He didn't want to compromise or sell out, something he made absolutely clear on the follow up Streetlife Serenade, where in "The Entertainer" he sang 'It was a beautiful song but it ran too long./If you're gonna have a hit, you gotta make it fit./So they cut it down to 3:05.' (His label had cut the running time of "Piano Man" for the single version). And thus started his beef with the entertainment industry.
