#thisdayinhistory 1/22/1969 #50years @glencampbellofficial awarded Gold Single for #wichitalineman . Here songwriter #jimmywebb received from producer #aldelory his award on the rooftop of the @capitolrecords building in Hollywood for writing the song.
Fifty years ago today (Jan. 22, 1969), #glencampbell earned the first gold single of his career, with "Wichita Lineman." The song, which was the title track of Campbell's 12th studio album, was written by #jimmywebb ; the tunesmith got the inspiration for the tune while driving through Washita County, Okla., when he saw a lone telephone lineman working on the top of a telephone pole. Webb often wrote in the studio while Campbell was recording; as soon as the songwriter played part of "Wichita Lineman" for Campbell, the singer knew he wanted to record the tune. "Wichita Lineman," which was nominated for an ACM for Single of the Year in 1968, has been included on several of Campbell's compilation albums. The song was also included on one of Campbell's last albums, 2013's 'See You There', which was released as the legendary singer's battle with Alzheimer's disease caused him to retire from the music business. #wichitalineman #countrymusicmemories
Anyone remember this 1960s vinyl? Richard Harris performs Jimmy Webb. Interesting concept album with great Wrecking Crew studio work. Post-Camelot, post-MacArthur Park, pre-Dumbledor. #richardharris #jimmywebb #theyardwentonforever #wreckingcrew #thewreckingcrew #camelot #macarathurpark

Jimmy Webb’s Witchita Lineman is just a hauntingly beautiful and evocative love song. The lyrics are pure poetry. There has never been a bad cover of it but Campbell’s version looms large over them all, as do his versions of all the Webb catalogue. US pressing from 1969 on Ember. • • • • #record #records #recordcollection #recordcollecting #recordcollector #vinylrecords #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcollecting #audiophile #vinyl #vinylporn #vinyllove #recordoftheday #albumoftheday #vinyljunkie #nowspinning #nowplaying #hifi #audiophile #33rpm #instavinyl #vinylcommunity #glencampbell #jimmywebb #galveston #countrymusic #countryandwestern #songwriter #wichita #popmusic

HERE IT IS! My 2018 recap of all the artists I had the honor of having on my channel this past year! Thank you all for being a part of this! 🙏🏻🙌🏻 We filmed 62!!!!! features in 2018 (17 of which are still in my editing queue), in addition to filming even more bands than I interviewed! My channel is 100% a DIY unit where in addition to interviewing the artists, I also do all of the editing myself. This channel is my baby and I'm so proud to see how it's grown with all our hard work last year - genuine sweat + tears, lots of high points and a some serious lows too, but we keep on fighting! Really looking forward to 2019 and making better content for you guys with all the knowledge we've picked up along the way, and some new + better gear additions to our setup! Lastly, I have to give the biggest thank you to @altmannjoe for supporting me through all this & picking me up when I've fallen down, helping my channel grow & flourish with all his efforts behind the camera. ❤️ #lastrockerstv #punk #punkrock #punkmusic #ska #reggae #oi #hardcore #pennywise #stifflittlefingers #theinterrupters #lindaramone #agnosticfront #theadicts #vicesquad #uksubs #jimmywebb #ixneedxmore #gbh #strungout #rebellionfestival #johnnyramone #badcopbadcop #boozeandglory #saveferris #fishbone #madcaddies #goodriddance #billiejoearmstrong #greenday

So, here's a little homage to my favorite composers "in popular music". Just some essential boxes for the shot. At the same time, music that it's really good to hear to live a better life. :) On the shot: Milton Nascimento - Pietà (Limited Edition CD - DVD) Toninho Horta - Solo Ao Vivo Michael Franks - The Dream 1973-2011 Nick Drake - Fruit Tree (2007 Edition CD - DVD) Antonio Carlos Jobim - The Man From Ipanema Noel Rosa - Pela Primeira Vez (Complete works) Burt Bacharach - Something Big (Complete A&M Years) Jimmy Webb - The Moon's A Harsh Mistress - In The Seventies Donald Fagen - Trilogy (CD -MVI) I chose only one unquestionable song to pair the photo. This one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnBQMdECEMM (Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Ana Luisa"). If you are not satisfied, try some other one song :). Pure perfection everywhere. Gianca

Jimmy Webb is the Pope of punk pride. For years, he was the reigning Mayor of St. Marks Place holding sermons at seminal punk boutique Trash and Vaudeville where he served as the store's buyer and manager after overcoming a life arc that found him going from 16-year-old runaway to a style saint in his own right. A self-described "runaway boy," Webb arrived in New York in 1975, penniless. That same year Trash and Vaudeville, an East Village institution that has dressed every CBGB fixture from Joey Ramone to Debbie Harry, opened its doors. Webb dreamed of working for Trash and its founder, Ray Goodman since his arrival, but a drug addiction overtook and his on-the-streets lifestyle —he lived in a cardboard box in Tompkins Square Park— made him a less-than-attractive hire. Goodman eventually relented and hired Webb who became the shop's top employee outfitting everyone from drag queens and new-wave punks to Slash, Beyoncé, and Iggy Pop in spikes, skintight jeans, and leather. Last year Webb opened his very own rock'n'roll boutique aptly named “I Need More” on Manhattan's Lower East Side at 75A Orchard St. between Broome & Grand. Boy Scout talked to Webb about desperation, bravery, and Barry White. #punk #fashion #style #homeless #street #oldschool #culture #nyc #boyscoutmagazine #podcast #interview #addiction #spirituality #celebrity #jimmywebb
My three favourite lyricists are Ira Gershwin, Paul Simon and Jimmy Webb. Webb is a giant of songwriting but has had a very lacklustre performing career. Ironically his best album, Ten Easy Pieces, which is just him at a piano, hasn’t been released on vinyl. El Mirage was produced by George Martin so it sounds incredible. I also recommend Webb’s book Tunesmith on the art of songwriting. Best book ever written about it in my opinion. Indispensable. • • • • #record #records #recordcollection #recordcollecting #recordcollector #vinylrecords #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcollecting #audiophile #vinyl #vinylporn #vinyllove #recordoftheday #albumoftheday #vinyljunkie #nowspinning #nowplaying #hifi #audiophile #33rpm #instavinyl #vinylcommunity #songwriting #songwriter #jimmywebb #glencampbell #georgemartin #highwayman #americana #lyricist

‘Galveston’, digital acrylic. I am an aficionado of poetry and music and, especially, songs with great lyrics. I guess it’s a good thing I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s. One of my favorite songwriters is Jimmy Webb and this morning his Galveston song came up on one of my Sonos playlists and took a permanent parking space in my brain so I sat down to match the lyrics to an image. (I am a Grammy-worthy vocalist in the shower.) Most people familiar with the song know the Glenn Campbell recording but you may also like the Jimmy Webb/Lucinda Williams recording. “Galveston, oh, Galveston, I still hear your seawinds blowing; I still see her dark eyes glowing. She was twenty one, when I left Galveston. Galveston, oh, Galveston, I still hear your seawaves crashin, while I watch the cannons flashin'. I clean my gun, and dream of Galveston. I still see her standing by the water, Standing there looking out to sea. And is she waiting there for me, On the beach where we used to run? Galveston, oh! Galveston, I am so afraid of dying, Before I dry the tears she's crying, Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun, at Galveston, at Galveston” Songwriter: Jimmy L Webb #galveston #galvestonbeach #jimmywebb #jimmywebbmusic #jimmywebbsongs #glenncampbell #lucindawilliams #digitalart #digitalacrylic #digitalpainting #digitalartist #greatsonglyrics #santafeartist #richmarquezwritesanddrawsnm
Where’s the playground Susie?They took away the “new playground” to put in a newer playground. Anyone else remember when the playground consisted of “sand castles” made from reclaimed concrete sewer pipes?

The guy could play the guitar like a monster, had an incredible voice, could act, was personable and effervescent and could write a song in a pinch. If he could dance he might have been one of the most all round talented artists of the 20th century. A Japanese only release with some ballsy versions of all the hits and a few deep cuts. • • • • #record #records #recordcollection #recordcollecting #recordcollector #vinylrecords #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcollecting #audiophile #vinyl #vinylporn #vinyllove #recordoftheday #albumoftheday #vinyljunkie #nowspinning #nowplaying #hifi #audiophile #33rpm #instavinyl #vinylcommunity #glencampbell #jimmywebb #countrymusic #western #livealbum #japan #americana #galveston

The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress - Jimmy Webb. “See her how she flies Golden sails across the sky Close enough to touch But careful if you try Though she looks as warm as gold The moon's a harsh mistress The moon can be so cold...” . . . #jimmywebb #songwriterslife #hitsongs #judycollins #glencampbell #music #song #songs #songwriter #songwriters #singer #singers #songlyrics #lyrics #americassongwriter #musician #musicians #musiciansofinstagram #pianist #pianoplayer #singer #singers #songwritersofinstagram
JOE COCKER・SHEFFIELD STEEL 隠れた名盤とは、まさにこのレコードのことを云うのであろう。 本国イギリスではチャートインせず、アメリカでも最高位100位台、なぜかフランス、ノルウェー、ニュージーランド、デンマークでは良く売れた。 発表タイミングは〈愛と青春の旅立ち〉直前の1982年。 参加ミュージシャンが凄く、スライ&ロビーがリズム隊を努め、エイドリアン・ブリューその他がギター、ロバート・パーマーやジミー・クリフがバックコーラス。 無駄な音がまったく入っておらず贅肉を削ぎ落としたタイトな音、当時のニューウェイブのエッセンスが散りばめられてはいるが、全体的に時代を超越した音楽になっている。 まったくヒットしなかったがこのアルバムは、ボブ・ディラン80年代作やミック・ジャガーの初ソロなどに示唆を与えたのではないのだろうか?。 硬質なリズム隊の音は出力ビンビンで針振れ捲り!。 このアルバムも無人島に相応しい(笑)。 #sheffieldsteel #joecocker #adrianbelew #barryreynolds #mikeychung #robbieshakespeare #wallybadarou #slydunbar #uziahstickythompson #robertpalmer #jimmycliff #chrisblackwell #alexsadkin #davidoxtoby #leonocentelli #greggsutton #andyfraser #bobdylan #randynewman #billwithers #jimmycliff #brendarussell #stevewinwood #willjennings #jimmywebb #islandrecords #island
I discovered the genius of Jimmy Webb by way of Glen Campbell and his perennial versions of the classics Galveston, By The Time I Get To Phoenix, Where’s The Playground Susie and the towering Witchita Lineman. Webb became that rare beast, the famous songwriter, in his twenties and had a solo career himself of limited success. But his lifelong collaboration with Campbell produced some amazing work. I think this album is one of the best things either ever did. Highly recommended! • • • • #record #records #recordcollection #recordcollecting #recordcollector #vinylrecords #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcollecting #audiophile #vinyl #vinylporn #vinyllove #recordoftheday #albumoftheday #vinyljunkie #nowspinning #nowplaying #hifi #audiophile #33rpm #instavinyl #vinylcommunity #glencampbell #jimmywebb #countrymusic #galveston #countryandwestern #singersongwriter #songwriter

You know, you see a picture like this, of an album cover in this case, and what you see is...a picture. You don’t see the time it took, the people involved, the breakdowns along the way, the standing in humility and awe at peoples’ generosity and talent, the sheer gratitude that I feel to offer this up to you today.

#lunchboxvinylchallenge #24 LP with your favorite cover of another artist. I am hoping this means cover song. @horisontmusic did a cover of #RichardHarris song “The Hive”. This is one of the best cover songs I ever heard. #Horisont really made it their own. The original is so good too. This song is so creepy but in a good way. The song was written by #JimmyWebb who some consider one of the greatest song writers. I also did not realize until I took these pictures that the font used on these 2 albums to list the songs is the same font! . . #vinyloftheday #instavinyl #vinylcollector #vinyljunkie #nowplaying #nowspinning #records #albumoftheday #vinyl #vinylcommunity #vinylcollection #albumart #cratedigger #recordcollection #vinylcollectionpost #recordcollector #vinylporn #vinyladdict #lp
