Vinyl LP reissue

Featuring "Living Without You" and "I Think It's Going To Rain Today"

Randy Newman's self-titled debut album was released in 1968. The album was highly orchestrated, unlike his later albums which featured mainly his piano backed by guitar, bass guitar and drums.

After starting his songwriting career as a teenager, Randy Newman began recording as a singer and pianist in 1968 with his self-titled album. Throughout the 1970s he released several other acclaimed albums such as: 12 Songs, Sail Away, and Good Old Boys. In addition to his solo recordings and regular international touring, Newman began composing and scoring for films in the 1980s. The list of movies he has worked on since then includes "The Natural," "Awakenings," "Ragtime," all three "Toy Story" pictures, "Seabiscuit," "James and the Giant Peach," "A Bug's Life," and most recently, Disney/Pixar's "Monsters University," the prequel to "Monsters Inc." (which he also scored).

Randy Newman's many honors include six Grammys, three Emmys, and two Academy Awards. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 — the same year he was given an Ivor Novello PRS for Music Special International Award. Mostly recently, Newman was presented with a PEN New England Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence Award in June 2014.
