The song STORY of "By the time I get Phoenix"

As I remember this is was Paul Petersen from the Donna Reed Show, Jimmy Webb first wanted to record "Phoenix".

It was when Petersen was with Motown J.W. was hoping that Paul would record this.

Later Tony Martin also a Motown artist recorded a DEMO ONLY of this also on Motown, as I remember.
Later he recorded this on a live album.

First regular RECORD version is with Johnny Rivers on a 45 vinyl on Imperial IM-6460 put out 3th October 1966.
On album with Rivers name "Changes" out November 1966.

The story why and when Glen saw this, was on a wall in a recordings studio, where Rivers album where placed.
Glen likes the titel of the song and then recorded this master evergreen.

#no. 3. on the BIG BMI copyrights list, there 50 years list 1990 was "Phoenix", and yes #no. 1. was "Yesterday".


J.W. was contract writer there on Jobete Music (Motown) from around 1965 and a year ahead.
First copyright money J.W. got was from a song on group Supremes Christmas album late november 1965 and tune was "My Christmas Tree".
J.W. got around 350-400 US dollars for his writing of this.

Just looking over my big Jimmy Webb music files today, and found my super rare acetate of "Where´s the playground Susie?", sung by Glen.

Can see this acetate I have is a Capitol mono made with Project #no. 70489, and can also read this was made 2th April 1969. Running time 2:59.

As you can read down here (post 22th February MOD), this was that song I ask J.W.s lovely wife Laura, to ask Jimmy to sing for me up at world famous artmuseum Louisiana, Denmark, 18th February 2011.
"Playground Susie" was in a medley this evening where J.W. also include "MacArthur Park".
This TWO songs is very PERSONAL for me.

Wow, Tim! What a cool opportunity you had there! It would be an honor to meet Jimmy Webb. In addition to their cosmic musical connection, I think it can be fairly stated that both Glen and Jimmy are down-to-earth guys, which is every bit as rare and wonderful as the music they've made through the years. Glad you had a chance to see both GREATS within a few days!

I meant to post this a few weeks ago...I saw Jimmy Webb in concert here in St. Louis on March 19th. It was exactly 6 days after seeing Glen in Horton, Kansas. What a treat to see those guys back to back like that. I sat in the front row and afterwords got to meet Jimmy to chat a bit and take some pics. We talked about Glen and also Frank Sinatra and his relationship with him. As all of us Glen fans can say...Jimmy is simply the best songwriter out there and a really great guy too!

Of the 7 or 8 copies of the new duets JW album there is only one left at my local HMV store.

Seems that sales for this album have done fairly well.

Wish there was a place to check out album sales.

This is from TIM "private" to me - some days ago!


Hi Erik,

Just had another thought!
- Do you remember Linda Ronstadt's interview about The Moon's a Harsh Mistress when she was talking about Jimmy breaking down in the middle of a live broadcast and he couldn't go singing the song.
She said then that the moon is a 'mother' figure and it may have had something to do with Jimmy's mother dying when he was young (Erik ad - around 18).

Well maybe the moon on Friday was a symbol of your mother looking over you and your friends.
I shall certainly never forget the experience!

------------

Erik AD: My dear mother left me, she was 85 when I was with my other music family The NEWBURY`s.
Mickey Newbury, American music legend (1940-2002).

I was at The Mickey Newbury Gathering in Austin, Texas, June 2008.
And my mother died, when I was over there with family of M.N., know most af Mickey`s family and friends.
I hurried home, but to late.
At a birthday party there in Austin 2008, we held before the Gathering and my mother was dead, was there a lady, who escort "dear old" friend of mine Mister Paul Colby, who maybe still owns The Bitter End nightclub in NYC.
I say hello to Colby and mention Jimmy Webb, and suddenly the lady says, what she know Laura Webb, and she wanted to let Laura know, that I was around.
When I leave home, I didn`t MENTION anything to the J.W. Forum, that my mother was dead.
BUT two days before funeral service, a flower lady was around with a big flower centrepiece from Jimmy Webb.
World can be small.
Can ad, that I last year was outside Houston, Texas, to say privat hello to Mickey lovely mother Miss Mamie, who last December reach 90.

Have been with the NEWBURY`s the last 7 years.
BUT J.W.s NUMBER ONE FAN!


sincerely
