Three good men - a broken boxer, an American veteran trying to win back his mother-dominated wife, and an air force sergeant married to a faithless actress - are corrupted by Miles Ravenscourt, an amoral "gentleman."

The Stranger is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on September 29, 1977, by Columbia Records. While his four previous albums had been moderately successful, The Stranger became Joel's true critical and commercial breakthrough, spending six weeks at #2 on the U.S. album charts.

This is not a George Lynch best-of or anthology. This is a two-disc collection of outtakes, demos, collaborations, and other assorted goodies designed to appease the most die-hard of Lynch fans. Selections from Dokken and Lynch Mob as well as his earlier bands like A, the Boyz, and Xciter are all here, but the second disc is where the metal gems truly lie.

At two discs, The Lost Anthology would be a bit much to handle for those who aren't true Lynch fanatics, but those who are will be pleasantly surprised at how well this maps out Lynch's evolution as a guitarist over three decades.
