Miss Randy Crawford
One early seventies evening, Leslie Stoval played "Last Night at Danceland." I fell in love with Randy Crawford, bought all her records, bought them all on CD.

For consistently great music over time, Randy is unsurpassed.

Windsong Windsong 1982
An occasional composer, Randy's "Don't Come Knockin'" is one of her best. But every song is gorgeous, particularly "One Hello." Her "Letter Full of Tears" cover is untouchable and "This Night Won't Last Forever" is a beauty.
Great accompaniment by some of the best studio musicians. For some reason, Secret Combination is available in America, but this classic is German only. Who won the War again?

Nightline Nightline 1983 [10; 40:02]
Pain never felt this good. An album with one great song after another, culminating in Randy's own sad, yet upbeat, "Go On and Live It Up." Another highlight: "In Real Life," contrasting what we want with what we get. A sadly profound, beautiful work.

Abstract Emotions abstract emotions 1986 [10; 49:31]
Yes, MadDonna's producer included a song a bit too similar to "Borderline" to desire, but there are several fine songs on this album, not the least of which is Randy's amazing "Almaz." I love "World of Fools," perhaps because of where I live. "Don't Wanna Be Normal." "Gettin' Away With Murder." Another great album.

  a poem for Randy
  without Randy, where would I be?
Randy's got that voice
It's not a choice
Have'ta listen
Melody just floats
Even august notes
Seem to glisten
  That's the way it sounds to me
Just a happy rhapsody
Or another case of blues
For which Randy's paid her dues
  Morning'shot and beat
Its red hot retreat
That's what's doin'
In the afternoon
I have quaffed the tune
Randy's brewin'
  That's a day in harmony
Or a merry melody
I'm not happy without you
Fade out baby, now we're through
