A note of faith~

The first two shows Jimmy Webb performed after his father passed, a venue Webb is known to appear when he is in Seattle, from a side alley after checking in, there is a long stair leading down to the main floor.

A picture promoting Webb's upcoming book, while waiting to be seated I remember a guest comment how beautiful he looks on the front cover.

The whole process of descending and the display the first thing that you see.

Now that the book has been released and circulating the universe, I think its' important to repeat what he said that first night.

If I am correct, I heard Webb say his father passed in his sleep, his 45 and bible next to his bed, a smile on his face.

The smile is important. The unconditional love.

To see Robert Webb's children grow up and have families of their own would be a great comfort and you know, perhaps, people waiting on the other side, and learn there is indeed more.

There is more.

Webb told the audience at the show I was at his people tried to contact kenye West about a sample, and were having trouble getting through, it was on the eve of the Grammy's.

I am uncertain of the outcome, although I was pleased to find the song in question made it in Webb's memoir the last entry page 307 Highlights & Awards!

The TV sound stage The Beatles appear on "A Hard's Night" are a dime a dozen up and down the English coastline, only The Beatles are going to alter the frequency they operate, like a jet plane through our living room.

And Jimmy Webb busts the door wide open for something even bigger, it isn't the recording, that stands the test of time, the words and music we harbor and carry inside each of us.

To have loved that much.

A central part of our psyche and well being. to take us well into the arc or span of a lifetime.

What sort of unwritten credit is that.

There is a big part Webb gets wrong in his memoir, the timeline for the movie "A Hard Day's Night".

Here is a sort of fix it time frame. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

1963 is the year two blockbuster songs hit the charts, "She Loves You" & "I Want To Hold Your Hand".

Around the end of '63 the songs finally make an impact on the American Market.

Early '64 The Beatles fly to America and perform on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Hot on the heels of that success The Beatles make their first movie Spring of '64 "A Hard Day's Night";

It is premiered the summer of '64.

If you study the dynamics of that film it is about how the band has conquered America and are back home in England, trying to remain anchored in a grueling work schedule.

Webb says in his memoir the TV stage in "A Hard Day's Night" is the Ed Sullivan Theater.

It is a huge oversight, the funny thing is that the film was trying to make a statement there are TV sound stages like the one in the film up and down the entire English coastline! A dime a dozen.

The film is on Webb's register because Rosemarie has a bit part. For a walk-on it's one of the key passages.

George Harrison is studying a dancer in costume, at the height of the band's success, you can see that he is figuring out the huge plumage is so the outfit will be picked up by the camera, he is a TV viewer like you and me, he's one of us, see, a joy to figure out together.

Later Harrison is seen wearing one of the dancer's hat, a perk of the biz, she is a fan like you and me!

So yeah, Rosemarie plays a huge part in that film. Another time and place would see me rewinding to that part just like Webb.

Last Wednesday night, Webb received another honor when a number of his colleagues gathered in New York City at Carnegie Hall to pay tribute to him and his music. Also called “The Cake and the Rain” (same title as memoir), the event was billed as a celebration of the music of Jimmy Webb. It also served as a benefit for Alzheimer’s research in honor of (Glen) Campbell, who was not only a frequent collaborator of Webb’s, but a friend as well.

Much like the recent Merle Haggard tribute in Nashville, the tribute to Webb’s music drew a disparate group of performers. - James Beaty

Jimmy was on BBC4 again singing "Didn't we" on the Singer/Songwriter series. They mentioned his work with Glen and Richard Harris. The clip was from the early seventies.

Fellow Oklahoma natives Toby Keith, Hanson and B.J.

Check out the other videos, too, on the same YouTube Channel (Stephen Hurtes). The audio is poor on some vids, but the one posted below (not in the article) is sublime: the great Judy Collins!
Catherine Zeta-Jones performed an amazing "Didn't We"!
Ashley Campbell performed "You Might As Well Smile" (I couldn't locate a video of her performance; can you?)

Jimmy Webb participated in an on-stage presentation held at the Country Music Hall of Fame!! This presentation was filmed for the museum's songwriter archives and is available (for a short time) on Live Stream. JW speaks at length about his collaborations with Glen Campbell. Clips of Glen are shown during the show.
Kim Campbell was in attendance and received a round of applause.

Watch the Live Stream (repeat) here: http://countrymusichalloffame.org/Conte ... QWO5xPyuUk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
(The video takes a few seconds for the audio to start.)
