Webb, un­spun by Pre­fab Sprout’s Paddy McAloon.

Mojo (UK) - - News -

“I was 11 when I heard Wi­chita Line­man. That line, ‘I need you more than want you,’ where sud­denly it’s been thrown into doubt, then ‘And I want you for all time…’ It moved me pro­foundly. In his great songs, there’s an ear for specifics and an at­ten­tion to lan­guage, and a great range and hu­man­ity. And a deep, sub­ver­sive mu­si­cal­ity. I don’t care what he says, Jimmy Webb is hip.”
