Randy Newman

Bruce Pollock, In Their Own Words (Collier Books), 1975

SLOWLY BUT SURELY, almost against his will, Randy Newman has become a legend in his own time – although not too many people know it, or his work. His legend is largely restricted to the hard core aficionados and a soft corps of music-business heavies who admire him unashamedly and re-release his notoriously poor-selling albums semi-annually.
