Songs in the Attic is the first live album by Billy Joel, released in 1981 (see 1981 in music).

At the time of its release, it was the first widely available appearance of music from his first album, Cold Spring Harbor, originally released in 1971.

Songs in the Attic introduced Billy Joel’s early work to fans who had only come to know his work after The Stranger, according to liner notes written by Joel. In his earlier work, most of the instruments were played by session musicians while Joel himself sang and played piano, keyboards and harmonica, but by the late 1970s, Joel had a fairly consistent touring/recording band and so he wanted to showcase the songs with his band. In addition, Joel and his band started adding their own style to many of his songs inspiring Joel to put out a record of these songs being played live the way the band had begun to play them.

The single-releases included: “Say Goodbye to Hollywood” and “She’s Got a Way”, which made the top 25, and “You’re My Home”. In Japan, “Los Angelenos” was also available in 1981.[2]

A series of promotional music videos were filmed. Though the concert filming may have been staged for the occasion, the audio versions are nonetheless different from the live recordings featuring on the live album. A total of five promo videos were filmed: four of them recorded at Sparks and one in a recording studio. At least two of them were not released as worldwide official singles.[3] “Everybody Loves You Now” (not a single) directed by Steve Cohen (live at Sparks); “You’re My Home” directed by Steve Cohen (live at Sparks); “Los Angelenos” (not a single, though a Japanese 7″ vinyl was in existence) directed by Steve Cohen (live at Sparks); “Say Goodbye to Hollywood” directed by Steve Cohen (live at Sparks); “She’s Got a Way” live in a studio, also a different version from the live album.[2]
