    Unless there has been new HLN books out since I last checked, the closest thing you are going to find is sheet music for keyboard - There's one book in particular called the Huey Lewis and the News Songbook if memory serves me well (it's red) has saxophone solos transcribed for keyboard. So, you're just going to need to transpose.

    Great band! Along with the J. Geils Band very underrated as musicians IMHO.

    I wouldn't say that T.O.P (Tower of Power) were underrated at all. In fact, as horn sections go, probably better known than most. I believe that TOP played the horns on Huey Lewis' album that featured I Want A New Drug.

    I do have a big band chart that was a medly of 3 or 4 Hewey Lewis tunes and I think the break for "I Wanna a New Drug" it in it. I have the bari sax part but the sax line is there as I recall. I will have to dig it up.

    Multi Reed is correct. Tower of Power was the horn section of HLN on many albums. Johnny Colla played sax solos such as as the one in the Heart of Rock 'N Roll, played rhythm guitar and did vocals as well as help compose/arrange many of the HLN tunes. Sort of like Huey's right hand man.

    Sure...but Johnny Colla wrote this song and, in addition to not being Huey Lewis and the News, the TOP horns were not on the Sports album. Sheesh!

    I'd much appreciate a scan or .pdf of this, if possible.
