Ten Easy Pieces ~ Jimmy Webb
Ten Easy Pieces ~ Jimmy Webb
5.0 out of 5 stars ...., April 25 2004
This is quite possibly the best easy listening c.d's I have heard in a long time. Jimmy Webb is an icon when it comes to writing and all these songs were better represented when they were released and popularized several decades ago by the likes of Glen Campbell, Judy Collins and Richard Harris. Jimmy Webb quite simply shunned away from his own singing career and only took up a few offers from established artists that required his song writing skills. By the age of 21, Webb was not only a multi-millionaire but also the hottest songwriter on the market.

Flesh And Bone ~ Thomas Newman

4.0 out of 5 stars ..., March 22 2004
What I like so much about "Flesh and Bone" is that it's so unlike most other Thomas Newman scores but it also predates the movies we have came to love like "The Green Mile", "Shawshank Redemption", "American Beauty".

I do want to correct one of the reviewers, "Days of Heaven" was initially released as a soundtrack upon the release of the movie but didn't stay in circulation for all that long. And with the pairing of "Two Mules for Sister Sara" this particular disc is once again going through the ranks of obscurity and hard to find, I know because I have spent 20 years searching to no avail. I was finally able to obtain "Days of Heaven" and shame on me from a music downloading site from a stranger from Denmark, he had no idea how much this music meant to me...it was my holy grail. It's a uplifting experience but sadly only 26 minutes of music that you never want to end.
