Album – RIVER OF DREAMS (Billy Joel)
Released on this day in 1993, River of Dreams is the twelfth and final studio album by Billy Joel.
The album presented a more serious tone than found in Joel’s previous albums, dealing with issues such as trust and long-lasting love.
Since the release of the album, Joel stopped recording studio albums. He continues to tour, record occasional singles and released a classical album featuring solo piano performed by Hyung-ki “Richard” Joo titled Fantasies & Delusions in 2001.
The album cover was a painting by Joel’s then-wife, Christie Brinkley.
In 1993, Rolling Stone gave her the Top Picks award for “The Best Album Cover of the Year”.
