Randy Newman's Harps and Angels

Randy Newman’s first (non-soundtrack) album in nine years came out yesterday. I’ve been enjoying Harps and Angels a lot. My favorite track so far is the one with the line: “God bless the potholes down on memory lane.” Before I forget, I’ll link to video of Randy introducing, then playing, “Potholes.”

Of the ten tracks, the one that’s received most press is probably “A Few Words in Defense of Our Country.” Here’s a video of Randy playing it. Each video is just voice and piano, although the album features fuller arrangements.
