To say that Jimmy Webb is one of the last of a breed would imply that there is or ever was anyone quite like him. The man who gave the world what has been called "the first existential country song" ("The Highwayman") and confounded generations of radio listeners with the brilliance of a lyric about a cake left out in the rain ("MacArthur Park"); who has topped the country, disco and pop music charts with a list of artists astounding in its diversity; and remains a trailblazer among songwriters 50 years after his first hit.
