Uptown, Uptempo Woman — Randy Edelman

Today Randy Edelman is a well-known film and TV composer, but back in the mid-1970s he wrote and performed one of my favourite songs.

Although “Uptown, Uptempo Woman” wasn’t a global smash hit by any means, and just squeaked into the UK Top 30 for a couple of weeks in 1976, in my opinion it’s one of the finest songs, musically and lyrically, to make an appearance in the UK pop charts.
