CD Reviews

Recipe for a masterwork
Michael A. Teuschler | Wind Lake, WI USA | 03/18/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Take the romantic and haunting strains of a 1960s troubador, add the spice of Joni Mitchell's choir-like back-up and the result is an album that should have found its place among classics. Beautiful lyrics, excellent arrangements... I was introduced to 'Feet in the Sunshine' over 30 years ago by a friend who has since passed. The good vibe of that song led me to seek out the album and what a find that was. Excellent arrangements of wonderful songs make this a sure bet for romantics and Webbphiles alike."
Essential for Webb fans

"While Webb fans love both his songs and his performances, the general public is mostly aware of this amazing tunesmith's covers from artists as diverse as Glen Campbell's country versions of "Wichita Lineman" to The Fifth Dimension's soulful "Up, Up and Away."

Only one song from "Land's End" received a cover of significance. That's "Crying in my Sleep", which appeared on Art Garfunkel's "Watermark," which is a collection dedicated to Webb's work.

"Crying in my Sleep" is one of the best songs on this CD, but add to that, "Lady Fits Her Blue Jeans," which deserved more attention than it got, and the amazing orchestral "Lands End" closing with "Asleep on the Wind" which is a lovely story about birds that never touch the land.

"Land's End" probably isn't the best introduction to Webb's work, if you are only familiar with other artists' covers, but it's essential for any Webb fan who loves both Jimmy's performance and his orchestrations.
