One of the cd’s was Billy Joel’s album ‘Storm Front’ which was recorded after his huge album days of the late 70’s.

Garth had always liked Billy Joel and really liked the album, there was one song he really liked, but he was hesitate to record a version because he didn’t know if Billy was going to release it as a single.
