Columbia/Legacy will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Billy Joel's "The Stranger" with two special edition releases this summer. Due July 8, the album will be available as a two-CD set and a two-CD/single-DVD package.

Both incarnations include the previously unreleased concert disc "Live at Carnegie Hall 1977." The set was recorded June 3, 1977, at the famed New York venue, a month before Joel hit the studio to record "The Stranger."

The DVD on the three-disc set rounds up promo videos and a 60-minute 1978 appearance on the BBC's "The Old Grey Whistle Test," which Columbia says only aired once.

"The Stranger" won Grammys for record of the year and song of the year (for the single "Just the Way You Are"). It also spawned the hits "Only the Good Die Young," "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)" and "She's Always a Woman."

Joel has a handful of live dates on his schedule in the coming weeks, including at New Orleans' Jazz Fest on April 26. He will also play 10 shows at Connecticut's Mohegan Sun casino from May through July, and July 16 and 18 dates at Shea Stadium in Queens, N.Y.
