Randy Newman was the first choice to compose for the "Vietnam Project" that became "More Than You Deserve." Oh how different things would have been! MTYD would have had a different name, first of all. Meat Loaf might have taken the callback from Tom O'Horgan's Sgt Pepper play instead. Who knows what Jim might have been doing, Rhinegold, Dream Engine, Good Woman of Setzuan? But I think they would have found each other eventually. It was meant to be.
