Also, whatever you think of the song, the plate reverb on "Just The Way You Are" lead vox is lovely.

Awesome studio technique...thanks for posting it...I wondered how they did that...didnt know about the 10cc influence but it makes sense... Joel reportedly never dug the pseudo latin beat that Ramone put on that song, but perhaps he is used to it now... gorgeous sax solo by Phil Woods (i think) too....

More direct influence here perhaps?... (wiki says the 10cc song came 1 year after this one was first released in 74) the Amaj chord with the B in the bass-pedal followed by the B maj ...totally 70s man

The "voice cloud" technique became (much later) one of the foundational aspects of Enya's process.

I think nowadays the tendency would be to "cheat" with sample-looping instead of doing it with a full sustained performances of people singing one note for minutes at a time.
