The film score of The Natural (1984) was composed and conducted by songwriting legend Randy Newman. Back on vinyl for the first time in decades, and pressed on aqua blue vinyl.
After starting his songwriting career as a teenager, Randy Newman began recording as a singer and pianist in 1968 with his self-titled album. Throughout the 1970s he released several other acclaimed albums such as: 12 Songs, Sail Away, and Good Old Boys. In addition to his solo recordings and regular international touring, Newman began composing and scoring for films in the 1980s. The list of movies he has worked on since then includes The Natural, Awakenings, Ragtime, all three Toy Story pictures, Seabiscuit, James and the Giant Peach, A Bug's Life and Disney/Pixar's Monsters University, the prequel to Monsters Inc. (which he also scored).
Randy Newman's many honors include six Grammys, three Emmys, and two Academy Awards. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 - the same year he was given an Ivor Novello PRS for Music Special International Award.
