BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

side-a

After all of the disappointment of the last week there is one bright point I am going to see Mr. Joel this evening in concert. Remember no matter where you are from or who you love keep letting your voice be heard. Keep The Faith!

“Keeping the Faith” is a song by rock singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released from his 1983 album An Innocent Man. It reached #18 on the main US Billboard Hot 100 chart and #3 on the US Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. The song was the only single from the album that failed to chart on the UK Singles Chart, despite the success of An Innocent Man in the United Kingdom.

“Keeping the Faith” is the last track on and final single from the album and the lyrics sum up Joel’s reason for creating the album, which hearkens back to the sounds and style of 1950s and early 1960s pre-British Invasion rock and roll music.
