Jimmy Webb Records With Joe Cocker, Art Garfunkel, Crosby and Nash

Legendary songwriter Jimmy Webb has gathered some of his famous friends, including Joe Cocker, Art Garfunkel and David Crosby & Graham Nash for his next album.

Jimmy Webb released one of the best albums of 2010 with Just Across the River, a collection of his music with the majority done in duets with artists like Vince Gill, Jackson Browne, Willie Nelson, Glen Campbell, Mark Knopfler and Linda Ronstadt.

Webb returns to the format on September 10 for another collection of some of his best songs with a new group of duet partners including a number of great veteran artists. Still Within the Sound of My Voice will be out on September 10 via Entertainment One.

Included on the album are duets with Carly Simon, Brian Wilson, Art Garfunkel, Kris Kristofferson, Amy Grant, David Crosby and Graham Nash along with modern artists like Keith Urban and Rumer.

While Just Across the River included many of Webb’s best known compositions, there were still a few left for Still Within the Sound of My Voice including the Glen Campbell hits Honey Come Back and Where’s the Playground, Susie along with the classic MacArthur Park which Webb does here in a duet with Brian Wilson. Still, it’s very rare for a Webb song that’s worse than great, so even those not as well known are sure to be gems.

Track List:
Sleeping in the Daytime (Lyle Lovett)
Easy for You to Say (Carly Simon)
Elvis and Me (The Jordanaires)
Where’s the Playground, Suzie (Keith Urban)
Still Within the Sound of My Voice (Rumer)
If These Walls Could Speak (David Crosby and Graham Nash)
The Moon’s a Harsh Mistress (Joe Cocker)
Another Lullaby (Marc Cohn)
You Can’t Treat the Wrong Man Right (Justin Currie)
Rider from Nowhere (America)
Honey Come Back (Kris Kristofferson)
Adios (Amy Grant)
MacArthur Park (Brian Wilson)
Shattered (Art Garfunkel)
