商品説明

The idea of releasing a collection of Jimmy Webb's best known songs sung by the author himself may seem like a no-brainer, but it's taken 20+ years for it to happen, apparently mostly because Webb needed to put some distance between himself and most of these numbers, in order to approach them in a fresh manner that makes this disc more than a mere exploitation effort. The result is the best and most accessible of all Webb's albums, featuring his 1990s' takes on Galveston, By The Time I Get to Phoenix, Didn't We, MacArthur Park, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, Wichita Lineman, and All I Know, amongst others. His voice is more expressive than ever, and the performances are generally grittier, with more raw emotion than the better known hit versions display. The arrangements are generally very simple and straightforward, with Webb's piano the primary instrument, and several of the songs are performed in a deeply personal manner, more akin to home recording for Webb's own pleasure than to a commercial release -- Wichita Lineman, in particular, sounds here like the most personal and private of performances, filled with wrenching loneliness at which the Glen Campbell version only hints. The notes are very personal and revealing as well. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

老いて益々磨きがかかったWebb節。日本でのコンサートは不入りでしたが、前から3列目で聞けてラッキーでした。大柄な体でピアノを弾く様を思い出しながら、このCDを聞いています。Webb家族総出の新譜が楽しみ。

全編ジミーが弾くアコピが力強く、しかも美しく渋いです。久しぶりにヴォーカルというものをじっくり聞ける作品です。
