FROM THE JIMMY WEBB MESSAGE BOARD, thought you'd all enjoy reading about Erik the Dane's special night as JW gave his first concert ever in Denmark.


Erik's Night

(posted by Tim Light on February 20, 2011 at 06:05:31)

Message:

I think it may be a little while before Erik can compose himself and post here again as he’s probably still pinching himself to see if it wasn’t all a dream.

Anyway, in Louisiana, or for those with a little geographic knowledge – ‘Just Across the Øresund’, it was a cold night. But even if the sea was frozen outside the windows, there was very warm anticipation inside. Erik sat in the front row between his girlfriend Jane and Jimmy’s wife Laura, and I sat behind Laura with Sven and Totti. This felt a little strange at times because every time Jimmy looked at Laura (which he did a lot) I thought he was smiling at me!

Playing in Denmark for the first time was a step into the unknown for Jimmy and I thought he was a little nervous to start with because of this, but he needn’t have worried. There are obviously a number of frustrated Danish Webb fans who have been unable to see him perform live before, and the screams of a couple when they heard him begin to sing ‘What does a Woman see in a Man’ surprised him so much he had to stop (in a nice way).

The whole evening was special but a couple of extra highlights –

The date of the concert coincided with a full moon, and I suppose because of the cold and the air being so clear, it was the brightest full moon you are ever likely to see. One wall of the concert hall was glass and this just happened to be the side on which the moon was rising. So it was a wonderful and unique moment when Jimmy sang ‘The Moon’s a Harsh Mistress’ with both him and us bathed in this strong moonlight.

Jimmy also spent some time speaking about Erik, about how this concert was his, and how he came to ‘love Erik as a brother’ before singing ‘Where’s the Playground Susie’ for him. Another magical moment.

NOT so much more to ad at this time, it is all so new to us all - and I / we have ONLY less that 6 weeks back, before J.W. arrival Denmark.


Maybe Jimmy will speak at the concert, a little about when Glen Campbell and J.W. meet or other story`s.


I am the "concert promoter" for this first ever danish Jimmy Webb concert.



sincerely

As I said before, in my mind it's not a question of either a Julian Raymond project or a Jimmy Webb project. To me, the ultimate (to speak with Keith Urban) "killer" album would be Glen singing and playing, Jimmy writing the songs and the orchestral arrangements and Julian producing.

Jimmy after all never did produce Glen in the first place. It was always 3 persons: Glen, Jimmy and Al de Lory (or Jimmy Bowen). In all honesty, as much as I love MGC, the songs on it do not reach the dizzying heights of many Jimmy Webb songs. Maybe that's one of the reasons it was such a consistent album. It did not have a Wichita Lineman or a Still Within the Sound of My Voice to put every other song in its shadow.
