“… A night with Jimmy at the keys is not unlike getting to hear George Gershwin or Cole Porter live. It’s hard to believe one guy could have written all these amazing songs…if you get a chance to see him live, grab it. People ask why nobody writes songs like they used to. Fortunately for us all, Jimmy Webb still does.”
Jimmy’s “Wichita Lineman” was used to great effect on the Netflix program “Ozark.” The song was featured in the opening and closing scenes on episode 9 of the current second season.
We're excited to announce that Jimmy's new Ten Easy Pieces Deluxe Edition is now available for pre-order. The new reissue was remastered with four bonus tracks which include "Up, Up and Away,"" I Was Too Busy Loving You," and additional demo takes of "Galveston" and "The Worst That Could Happen" plus new liner notes by Jimmy.

I drifted from the center of the room, where I’d greeted Nancy Sinatra, a sweet, straightforward kid my age, and her father who wasn’t really known for long, frivolous conversations. Nobody knew who the hell I was unless they were telepathic, which made it easier to slide through the seekers and sounders and find a friendly bar stool in the corner. I ordered a beer and swiveled to face the crowd, which had reached maximum spatial saturation, a point at which literally no person in the room can move in any direction for any distance. Networking shuts down. Now people just want to get out alive.
I laughed and wheeled around to devote my attention to the gold veins in the black mirror behind the bar. “These Boots Are Made for Walking” was just short of deafening on the sound system as I felt, rather than sensed, a person immediately to my right.
A familiar baritone bourbon voice reverberated in my ear “Jimma.”
The guy had bent over and put his elbow right down on the bar to talk to me. I eased my head around cautiously, not sure who had managed to move in so close.
“Jimma!” he said again, and I found myself nose-to-nose and eyebrow-to-eyebrow with Elvis Presley.
