"The Songbook records strip away the orchestrations of his regular albums, leaving Newman alone at the piano, singing songs from throughout his career  three-minute masterpieces from throughout a half-century career" - Time Out NY

3CD set release of the recent, acclaimed 'The Randy Newman Songbook' 4LP vinyl box set

The sixteen additional songs from the new third volume, along with five bonus tracks ("Feels Like Home," "A Wedding in Cherokee County," "Family Album: Homage to Alfred, Emil and Lionel Newman," "I'm Dreaming," and "Wandering Boy"), join those first two volumes to create this new complete Songbook box set.

The previous two volumes (Vol.1 came out in 2003, Vol. 2 in 2011) have been super-well received by fans old and new, and the Vol. 3 material, which is included in this set, features new interpretations of Ranfy's two biggest hits 'Short People' and 'I Love LA', as well as a new version of his iconic Oscar-nominated 'Toy Story' theme,  'You've Got a Friend in Me'.

After starting his songwriting career as a teenager, Newman began recording as a singer and pianist in 1968 with his self-titled album. In addition to his solo recordings, Newman began composing and scoring for films in the 1980s. The list of movies he has worked on since then includes all three 'Toy Story' pictures and most recently, 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.

Note: the sequence of the CD format is not the same as the "thematic" sequence of the vinyl box set. Instead, the CD and digital formats are sequenced in the same way as the original individual album releases
