Just Across The River

Just Across The River is the new album from multiple Grammy award-winner Jimmy Webb, one of the most celebrated composers and songwriters in American music history. The album features interpretations of the classic songs that made him a vital cultural icon including 'BY THE TIME I GET TO PHOENIX', 'WICHITA LINEMAN', 'GALVASTON', 'THE HIGHWAYMAN' and more. The album features guest appearances from Webb’s friends, fans and recording partners including JACKSON BROWNE, GLEN CAMPBELL, VINCE GILL, BILLY JOEL, MARK KNOPFLER, MICHAEL McDONALD, WILLIE NELSON, LINDA RONSTADT, J.D.SOUTHER and LUCINDA WILLIAMS. Just Across The River came together at the behest of producer and longtime Webb collaborator Fred Mollin, who wished to honor Webb’s storied career and his celebrated contributions to the Americana roots tradition (Webb is a native son of Oklahoma). Says Mollin of the album, 'This record is a homecoming for Jimmy. His songs are true classics and they could provide the soundtrack to your life.' The only artist to ever receive Grammy awards for music, lyrics and orchestration, Jimmy Webb wrote five top ten hits within a 20-month period in the 1960s, which propelled him from humble beginnings in Oklahoma to international fame. Webb is a member of the National Academy of Popular Music Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, and, according to BMI, his 'By The Time I Get To Phoenix,' has been the third most performed song in the last 50 years, with 'Up, Up and Away' on the same list in the top thirty. Webb has provided classics for Glen Campbell ('By The Time I Get To Phoenix,' 'Wichita Lineman' and 'Galveston'), Richard Harris ('MacArthur Park'), the Fifth Dimension ('Up, Up and Away,' 'This Is Your Life'), Art Garfunkel ('All I Know'), Linda Ronstadt ('Easy For You To Say') and Joe Cocker ('The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress'). Webb’s songs continue to grace a multitude of major recording artists’ albums, from Tony Bennett and Rosemary Clooney, to Urge Overkill, Reba McEntire, Celtic Woman and James Taylor. New career-defining album from legendary songman features guests JACKSON BROWNE, GLEN CAMPBELL, VINCE GILL, BILLY JOEL, MARK KNOPFLER, MICHAEL McDONALD, WILLIE NELSON, LINDA RONSTADT, J.D.SOUTHER and LUCINDA WILLIAMS helping out on new versions of Jimmy’s most famous songs, including 'BY THE TIME I GET TO PHOENIX', 'WICHITA LINEMAN', 'GALVESTON', 'THE HIGHWAYMAN' and more.
