See her how she flies, golden sails across the skies..

Jimmy Webb - The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
from the album El Mirage (Atlantic, 1977)


Just a song to end the weekend with, a fantastic song from a fantastic songwriter. Do yourself a favour and search out some of Jimmy Webb's albums. Other songs from his massive catalogue are "Wichita Lineman" and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" made famous by among others Glen Campbell. More about him later. Also more about good old Jimmy Webb later. The Norwegian jazzsinger Radka Toneff also recorded a stunning version of this beautiful song. Listen to them both here.
