If Randy Newman's eponymous 1968 debut, co-produced by his childhood friend Lenny Waronker and arranger Van Dyke Parks, seemed out of step with the times upon its original release, that's perhaps because he had created something timeless. Newman combined sophisticated orchestrations and indelible melodies with story-song lyrics that veered between the unabashedly romantic and the sarcastically humorous. A song like "I Think It's Going To Rain Today," its simple words harboring heartbreaking emotion, is arguably an American standard, covered by an astonishingly wide range of artists, including Judy Collins, Bobby Darin, Rick Nelson and Nina Simone. Randy Newman marked the emergence of a unique talent that would become a superstar in only a few albums time.
