Webb's been writing songs for others since 1965, and has regularly recorded himself as well. For some reason, while others have had huge, enduring hits, he has never broken through on his own, even though he's a household name. Conventional wisdom is that he doesn't have the voice and personality to hit on his own, but he sounds just fine on this new collection. He's joined by a mixed bag of stars, old and new, going through choices, famous and lesser-known, of his huge catalog.He's done this before, as recently as 2010's Just Across The River, so the hits have largely been claimed already. So no Galveston, Wichita Lineman, or By The Time I Get To Phoenix here. That's okay though, because it forces him to find some other good ones that haven't been heard too much. That includes Elvis And Me, one of the few songs about Presley that actually is interesting, and completely true. In a classy move, Webb's guests here are The Jordanaires, The King's old backing vocal buddies. Another lesser-known gem is Easy For You To Say, covered first by Linda Ronstadt on her 80's album Get Closer. With her recently-announced illness, in steps Carly Simon for the duet duties, no slouch in that department. But it's here that Webb really shows his voice has grown better with maturity, as he ably carries his end with a the famous pipes of Simon.
