Still On The Line: A Tribute To Jimmy Webb / Var on LP

2015 tribute album to the songwriting legend. For the last 50 years, American popular music has been filled with the timeless songs of Jimmy Webb and we are thrilled to help continue that legacy with Still on the Line: A Tribute to Jimmy Webb. These are 12 new recordings by artists who share our passion for his songs, which we consider to be some of the most emotionally moving and skillfully crafted of all time. Part of Webb's unique talent lies in the versatility of his songs. While "Where's the Playground Susie" and "Galveston" were hits for Glen Campbell, they find a fresh new home in the voices of Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Elephant Micah. "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", considered by Frank Sinatra to be "the greatest torch song ever written", sounds as heartbreaking as ever when performed here by Mike Adams At His Honest Weight. While none of these songs are meant to replace any of their previously recorded versions, they demonstrate their strength to grab our hearts no matter the genre, voice or decade where they find themselves.
