"Erik the Dane", member and friend of Glen Campbell Forums (as well as a dear friend of mine) flew in from Denmark to New York City to attend Jimmy Webb's The Cake and The Rain Concert at Carnegie Hall.
As some of you know, Jimmy Webb considers Erik, a long-time JW fan and JW concert planner in Denmark, as one of his dedicated documentarians.
Erik did a great "job" of documenting the Carnegie event and was super thoughtful to send us the set list, insider observations, and rockin' photos!
THE SET LIST
”Oklahoma Nights”, acapella, 1-2 vers (group Hanson) - Michael Douglas talk - ”Moon Is A Harsh Mistress” (Judy Collins), ”Up, Up And Away” (Marilyn McCoo / Billy Davis, Jr. - Fifth Dimension), “The Worst That Could Happen” (Marilyn McCoo / Billy Davis, Jr.), “Do What You Gotta Do” (B.J. Thomas), “Still Within The Sound Of My Voice” (Liz Callaway), “Highwayman” (group Hanson), “Shattered” (Shelèa), “Phoenix” (Johnny Rivers), “Galveston” (Jimmy Webb), “If These Walls Could Speak” (Graham Nash / J.W. sings together), “All I Know”, (Art Garfunkel / J.W. piano), “Wichita Lineman” (Dwight Yoakam) - Michael Douglas talk - “You Might As Well Smile” (Ashley Campbell) - Michael Douglas talk - “Didn`t We” (Catherine Zeta-Jones), “Only One Life” (Michael Feinstein), “MacArthur Park” (Toby Keith / J.W. play middle piece on piano), “Adios” (Amy Grant / J.W. sings for), LAST “Up, Up And Away” (All contributors sing with Jimmy).
At the rehearsal, Erik had a "short talk" with the wife of Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones. He shared with me: "what A GREAT VOICE, she have!"
If you saw the video of Catherine singing "Didn't We" on YouTube, yes, she has an amazing voice. (She is a 2017 Tony Awards Nominee for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for "A Little Night Music".)
(Photos and video filming during the concert were not permitted.)
At the after party, Erik spoke briefly with Johnny Rivers, Michael Feinstein, Dwight Yoakam and Toby Keith.
And had a `small talk`with Amy Grant, describing her as a very down to earth lady.
Highlights for Erik: “Didn`t We” (sung by Catherine Zeta-Jones) and “MacArthur Park” (performed by Toby Keith / J.W. play middle piece on piano).
Other special guests whom he met (some not for the first time) at the after party are pictured below in photos he is sharing with Glen Campbell Forums with permission to post.
Very kind of Erik. He knows I have not been well; otherwise, I would have been the girl popping out of the cake at the after party! Sorry you had to miss that spectacle, Jimmy Webb! lol
