CD Reviews

One of Webb's first albums re-released
R. Kyle | USA | 07/20/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard "Pocketfull of Keys" when Glen Campbell sang it with the Boston Pops the night he did a tribute to Jimmy Webb. Unfortunately, I was never able to lay my hands on that recording. For that matter, I couldn't find Webb's recording, either, but the song so haunted me that I'd make a search for it every so often til it finally showed up on a compilation. I admit, I'm such a Webb fan that I bought this CD as soon as it came out. That's the power of Webb's music--even the lesser known selections can strike a note that resonates with you for years.

"And So on" is a collection of some of Webb's lesser-known songs, but many will resonate with you. "Marionette" and "All My Love's Laughter" were covered very ably by Art Garfunkel on his Webb tribute album, "Watermark."

"If Ships were to Sail" is one of the most beautiful songs here and I'm surprised it has not been covered more often. It's a lovely sad ballad.

"And So On" is probably not the CD for a casual Webb fan or a beginner, but if his music has entranced you, I really think it's a worthwhile addition to your collection."
Apt title

"For those who love Jimmy's work, this is a must have, especially since it was a bit of a mystery for a long time. When I purchased Archive, I was unable to find four tracks on the CD's I already owned, so I figured out there had to be an album in between Words and Music and Letters. And So ... On is that very album. With a very apt title. Words and Music wasn't received very well, so Jimmy must have thought 'oh well, let's keep going' and see what comes out next'. Or something. And So...On is a pleasing collection of early Jimmy's solo works - not as experimental as Words & Music, not as good as later albums -notably Mirage- would be. It's nice to hear the original versions of songs that were later covered by people like Art Garfunkel and Ian Matthews. No real gems by Webb standards, but no junk either.
I recommend Archives, which contains a good overview of Jimmy's work in the seventies."
