Randy Newman – Good Old Boys (1974)
I’m slowly becoming a Newman-fanatic! “Good Old Boys” is Nemwan’s fourth studio album but the first one where the patented Newman-arrangement lasts the entire time. I’m amazed he stuck with this type of production to at least Toy Story (all of these songs have the same piano-led, Southern orchestra sound of “You’ve Got A Friend In Me”). Nothing really stands out, with maybe “Mr. President” the only exception, but that’s actually a good thing since the quality never dips the entire half hour (here’s to short albums!). [6.8/10.0] Great
