The Daily GLOB


Happy Thursday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers!  Thursdays have turned special for the GLOB Master because I get to talk tunes with my fellow GLOBers.  You know, important things like today in 1973 1973, Dr Hook And The Medicine Show got their picture on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine after their hit, The Cover of Rolling Stone reached No. 6 on the US singles chart. According to members of the group, they really did buy five copies for their mothers, just like the song said.   Hmmm, I remember being at a Fla vs Ga tailgate party at my big brother's home in Jacksonvile and I am pretty sure he played that tune at least six times in a row, laughing harder every time he started it over. Now those were some parties that could have made the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

I remembering Randy Newman being one of my first music finds along with Ry Cooder.  In fact it was Ry Cooder backing up Newman on several of the songs on Mr. Newman's disk that made me stop and listen to this clever, cynical song writer.  12 Songs includes great songs with tunes like Burn Down The Corn Field, Momma Told Me Not to come and Yellow Man.


An anomaly among early-'70s singer/ songwriters, Randy Newman may have been slightly influenced by Bob Dylan, but his music owed more to New Orleans R&B and traditional pop than folk. Newman developed an idiosyncratic style that alternated between sweeping, cinematic pop and rolling R&B, which were tied together by his nasty sense of humor.

Born into a musical family -- his uncles Alfred and Lionel were both noted film composers -- Randy Newman had become a professional songwriter by the time he was 17, working for a California publishing house. Newman pursued a B.A. in music from UCLA, but he dropped out of college when his friend Lenny Waronker landed him a record contract with Reprise Records. His eponymous debut album received little attention upon its 1968 release, but over the next few years, his reputation as a songwriter grew as Judy Collins, Dusty Springfield, and Peggy Lee recorded his songs. Three Dog Night took his Mama Told Me Not to Come to number one in 1970, the same year Harry Nilsson recorded an entire album of Randy's songs, Nilsson Sings Newman.

The Actors' Warehouse production of MUD has me thinking about the bottom dwelling living experience in our excessive, materialistic world.   No one explains it better than Randy Newman, and his sharp, sarcastic wit evokes broad smiles that cover up the pain, hurt, guilt I experience:

They say that people are livin' in the street
No food in their belly, no shoes on their feet
Six black children livin' in a burned-up room
One bare light bulb swinging
Little black kid come home from school
Put his key in the door
Mr. Rat's on the stairway, Mr. Junkie's lyin' in his
Own vomit on the floor
You gotta roll with the punches, little black boy
That's what you got to do
You got to roll with the punches
- Roll With The Punches
-- Randy Newman
