About this Album
While touring in support of his 2008 album Harps and Angels, Randy Newman performed a special concert at London’s intimate LSO St. Luke’s, an 18th-century Anglican church that has been restored by the London Symphony Orchestra for use in its community and music education programs. He was accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ziegler, and the program was televised by the BBC. Nonesuch Records releases this concert as the CD/DVD Randy Newman: Live in London. The Sunday Times of London says: "Essential listening for anyone who cares about the art of songwriting."
The 22-song London set features songs from throughout Newman’s four-decade long career, including some of his best-known songs like “Short People,” “Louisiana 1927,” and “I Think It’s Going to Rain Today,” as well as newer songs such as “A Few Words in Defense of My Country” and “Laugh and Be Happy." An interview from the BBC broadcast also is included on the DVD.
The audio portion of the album is also available for purchase digitally as 320 kbps MP3s.
