People on record: This week Randy Edelman

Robin Katz, Girl About Town, 2 May 1978

WHEN RANDY Edelman comes to London, he always stays at the same W1 hotel. It seems to bring him good luck. The last time he was here he got a call from record company president Clive Davis asking him to revise a song he had written for himself called 'Weekend In New England'. Some 3,000 miles away from the real New England, Edelman hunched over the hotel piano and revised the song. Stateside, it went to number one.

Total word count of piece: 796
