Randy Newman released “Little Criminals” on September 23, 1977 and almost immediately pissed off the vertically challenged across the land. It contains my fav Newman tune, “Baltimore,” which has been covered by Nina Simone, Nils Lofgren, David Gray and many others.
A few of Randy’s friends helped out on the album including Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Don Henley. J.D. Souther and Timothy B. Schmidt.
