Little Criminals

Randy Newman released “Little Criminals” on September 23, 2977 and almost immediately pissed off the veritcally 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.
