The last I heard of Janet...
Steven Cain | Temporal Quantum Pocket | 11/26/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"... she was married to some guy... Dang it... I may never have heard this album had I not had a major crush on a certain Janet W., who I met at college. She kept raving about the album, and as a means of creating more common ground I picked it up, just to be able to flash my own copy (vinyl in those days). Surprise surprise, I was blown away. Richard had always been one of my favorite actors, but nothing could have prepared me for the intelligent way he negotiated so many stunning Jimmy Webb songs. He also went on to repeat the dose on The Yard Went On Forever.While the epic Mac Arthur Park was the rightful mega hit, there are many wonderful songs on this truly classic album. My personal favorites include Mac Arthur Park, Paper Chase, Didn't We, Name Of My Sorrow and Lovers Such As I. No, Richard didn't have the kind of voice that could challenge Jack Jones and Tony Bennett, but he did have a very pleasant voice and this, combined with his exceptional acting prowess, enabled him to add a magic of his own to the already intriguing Webb masterpieces.This is one of those rare comings together of two great artists who between them created a stunning whole that was even greater than the sum of the considerable parts.Janet? I think she became an accountant... Sigh..."
No one has ever done it better

"I was in college in 1968 and stopped at a buddy's house to bs.
He pulled out an album and said listen to this song. The song
was "In The Final Hours". He knew I had just gone thru a rough
relationship and felt the song appropo for my mood. I cried
then in 1968 and I still get tears in my eyes when I hear that
song and the album it accompanies. VH1 recently had their list
of the greatest 100 love songs of all time. Guess what-every song
on this album could've made the list. When a songwriter with the
insight of Jimmy Webb hooked up with a singer with the interpretive skills of Richard Harris perfection was achieved.
There has not been a pairing since that approaches these 2 artists and i feel safe in saying there may never be again. I can
only say that I feel fortunate to have lived at the time this
album was born."

"It shouldn't work, but it does. Richard Harris, hardly known for his work as a singer, manages to come across as a mixture of moderately eccentric and moderately brilliant in his interpretations of Jimmy Webb's songs. MacArthur Park is always an easy target for ridicule but Harris' version is probably the only one that comes across as genuine. The rest of the album comes across as a strange painting, you don't really need to know why, it just is. Rather excellent."
