Randy Newman: London, Theatre Royal

Barney Hoskyns, Observer, The, 20 November 1994

IT'S HARD to believe that in 1968 Randy Newman claimed he was "very rarely propelled by any great desire to perform live". Especially hard when one considers that, a mere three years later, Warner Brothers released the Randy Newman Live album purely in order to showcase the man’s gifts as a showman.
