“The participants were all fans, almost all amateurs, so the quality of the recordings and performances is quite divergent. But it’s noteworthy for Randy Newman fans because Randy contributed an unreleased track to the project — his demo of “That’ll Do,” his Oscar-nominated song from “Babe, Pig In The City.” (Pretty cool, huh?!)”
