Randy Newmans Good Old Boys is nothing less than a tour of Southern bigotry and pride in the 20th century. It remains as shocking, pristine, and regrettably relevant as the day it was released. Since his teenage days marketing demos to pop singers, Randy Newman has fancied himself a shirt-sleeves-rolled-up piano man in the classic mold more than a rock musician-a Laurel Canyon-era Hoagy Carmichael or Harold Arlen, if they wrote about young women being run over by beach cleaning trucks or lonely men with hat fetishes. Randy Newman's songwriting often walks a narrow line between intelligent satire and willful cruelty, and that line was never finer than on the album Good Old Boys. Newman had long displayed a fascination with the American South, and Good Old Boys was a song cycle where he gave free reign to his most imaginative and venomous thoughts on the subject. The album's scabrous opening cut, Rednecks, is guaranteed to offend practically anyone with its tale of a slow-witted, willfully and proudly ignorant Southerner obsessed with keeping the n---s down.

We talk real funny down here We drink too much and we laugh too loud Were too dumb to make it in no Northern town And were keepin the niggers down We got no-necked oilmen from Texas And good ol boys from Tennessee. Released September 10, 1974. Good Old Boys Tracklist. Rednecks Newman's Southern concept album opens with a shot of his satiric wit: In Rednecks, he creates a thoroughly believable character, deflates racism, pokes fun at Georgia governor Lester Maddox, and offends the uptight on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line. Yet the best tracks arent funny at all: Guilty and Marie are both love songs, delivered by admittedly flawed characters. The haunting ballad Louisiana 1927, about a real-life flood of historic proportions, took on new meaning after Hurricane Katrina. Good Old Boys Randy Newman.
