Award-winning musician Randall Stuart Newman (b. 1943) began his career as a songwriter at the young age of 17, and has gone on to not only write and perform his own songs and write for other well-known bands (such as Fleetwood Mac,etc.) but has composed the music for countless films including nine of the Disney animated films, and more.

His award list is impressive, including nominations for twenty-two Academy Awards, the winner of three Emmy Awards and seven Grammy Awards (among others). He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002 and, in 2013, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Contre Coup Press of Louisville took the lyrics to Newman's song "Shame" (released on the album "Bad Love" in 1999) and created a lovely work whose delicacy and grace form a counterpoint to the heartfelt lines. Printed in an edition of only fifteen copie, we see only one other copy online as of this writing, our search of OCLC locates two copies with institutions (The Book Club of California, University of Louisville).
