专辑介绍:


Jimmy Webb最好的一张个人专辑

(以下介绍为转载)

熟悉60年代到80年代音乐的资深歌迷,如果你听主流音乐,或许你会知道Donna Summer和Richard Harris都唱过的Mac Arthur Park.如果你听爵士乐,或许你曾听见过The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress.而我们肯定听乡村音乐,那我们应该有听过Glen campbell的By the time I get to Phoenix,又或者Wichita Lineman,或者Galveston。更或者应该都听过了85年第28届格莱美最佳乡村单曲,由Johnny Cash,Willie Nelson,Waylon Jennings,Kris Kristofferson一同演唱的Highwayman~

是否有人注意听过67年第10届格莱美年度最佳金曲和年度最佳单曲得主《up,up and away》?(其实这首歌不单只获得那年格莱美的这两个重要奖项)是否有人注意到那年的最佳年度专辑The Beatles的《柏派上校的孤心俱乐部》,还有,是否还有人注意过那年乡村部分的得奖情况?有这样几个名字:“Tammy Wynette”“Glen Campbell”你能想到什么?这年有个人其实是真正的大赢家。

之后的许多年中格莱美的提名以及得奖名单中,其实都提到过他的名字,只是我们都忽略了真正创造了这些成绩的某个人。而这个人就是-Jimmy Webb,他是一个浪漫主义者,同样也是一个满含乡村情结,追求新传统主义的创作者,整个音乐世界里让无数人敬仰的著名作词作曲家,他同时横跨摇滚,民谣,乡村,爵士等多个不同风格的音乐领域,曾与众多不同风格的歌手合作过,比如Bob Dylan,The Beatles, George Harrison, Mick Jagger, Johnny Rivers,Frank Sinatra,Simon & Garfunkel,Joni Mitchell等等,他创作以及监制了相当多的传世老歌,捧红了一大批那个年代的歌手。而这其中就有乡村界的两员Tammy Wynette和Glen Campbell,尤其是后者Glen Campbell的日后成功,他俩的合作就是最好的体现。

Jimmy Webb, best known as a songwriter ("MacArthur Park," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix"), recorded three albums for Reprise Records between 1970 and 1972, and a fourth for Asylum in 1974, without commercial impact, before subsiding into the background work of writing, producing, and arranging for other artists. But he came back to the forefront in May 1977 with the release of El Mirage on Atlantic, his most polished effort yet as a performer. On the Reprise LPs, he had seemed intent on erasing his image as a middle-of-the-road hitmaker, taking a more personal approach to his writing, rocking harder, and singing in a sometimes rough voice. But by the age of 30, he seemed to have reconciled himself to being more of a pop artist, and El Mirage reflected that. The music was produced, arranged, and conducted by George Martin, famed for his work with the Beatles, the strongest outside figure Webb had ever allowed into his recording sessions, and those sessions also were peopled by the cream of Los Angeles musicians, along with such familiar guests as members of Elton John's backup band and, for vocal support, Kenny Loggins and Billy Davis of the 5th Dimension (which had scored hits with such Webb compositions as "Up-Up and Away"). These were lush tracks full of tasty playing and warm string charts on which Webb's thin tenor was buoyed by numerous background vocalists, the whole an excellent example of the style known as "West Coast pop." Webb brought several typically strong compositions, beginning with the time-spanning saga "The Highwayman" (later a number one country song for the quartet of Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson, who then took the group name the Highwaymen in its honor, and a Best Country Song Grammy winner) and including the autobiographical "If You See Me Getting Smaller I'm Leaving" (released simultaneously by Jennings), about life on the road as a struggling performer, and "Christiaan, No," a heartfelt message from a parent to a child that actually had been introduced on record the previous year by Glen Campbell. Also featured was the sad, lovely ballad "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress," already recorded by Campbell, Joe Cocker, and Judy Collins. The album's second side was somewhat weaker than the first, including an unnecessary remake of "P.F. Sloan," which had appeared on Webb's debut solo album in 1970; a nod to faithful backup guitarist Fred Tackett in a recording of his song "Dance to the Radio"; and a concluding instrumental, "Skylark (A Meditation)." But El Mirage was an album crafted to reshape Webb's image as a performer and relaunch his performing career. (As Richie Unterberger notes in his annotations to Collectors' Choice Music's 2006 reissue, Webb told New Musical Express that if the album didn't "make it," he might give up recording. It didn't, and another five years passed before the next Jimmy Webb solo album.)
