Andy Childs, ZigZag, July 1975

IT'S AN AWFUL confession to make, especially in a normally omniscient rag like this, but up until about nine months ago I was almost completely unaware of Billy Joel, apart from a dim recollection of his first album being released over here, and an old Rolling Stone article documenting his peculiar popularity in Philadelphia.
