Jimmy Webb CD Review
This CD review is on the Countrystandardtime.com web site in its entirety. Robert Wooldridge wrote it. So, here’s a chunk of the review anyway:
Songwriter Jimmy Webb revisits many of his classic compositions in this collection, with help from several other pop, rock and country music luminaries. While Webb’s vocals are pleasant enough, at times reminiscent of Ronnie Milsap or Alabama’s Randy Owen, these offerings demonstrate why he is more revered as a tunesmith than a singer.
No Webb compilation would be complete without the contribution of Glen Campbell and the inclusion of the tune By The Time I Get To Phoenix, so it’s no surprise that Campbell joins Webb on an effective duet of the song that helped make them both stars in 1967.
Fans of Jimmy Webb will enjoy most of the remakes in this set.
