It's exactly my kind of song.

Thought about you when hearing it.

Name checking Bacharach, Webb, Campbell and Copland (not to mention the Grand Canyon), he's set the bar very very high. I'm intrigued to see if he and Aniello ( for I feel this is as much his record as Bruce's) can pull this off.

Whoever said there were shades of Kristofferson? That guy -whom I liked - couldn't sing! Bruce can.

 

I mentioned Kristofferson. You think he can't sing??

I really like the album cover! 

When I opened the file I thought it was another Lloyd’s Bank personal loan offer.

This actually sounds like a song that's right up your alley.

Why? what kind of political statement is Bruce trying to make in this song? ;)

I am still on hold with them to get a loan to fund the upcoming tour

He is remarkably often off tune.

Oh that. Doesn't mean he can't sing. Not for me.

This song would have fitted in just fine in the Midnight Cowboy movie.

I know who Bacharach and Campbell are but who is Webb? Is Copland the film, the New Zealand River, an asteroid or the unreleased Apple Operating System (These are the choices I got from Google).

Also is Grand Canyon the place or a group? If its the place what does it sound like? This new song sure is complicated.

 

Edit: just found a picture of a bloke who would do for both Campbell and Webb. ex Chelsea hard man (David "Glenn" Webb)

Jimmy Webb. Songwriter behind stuff like Wichita Lineman, Highwayman and Galveston. He's not really hit it big himself but those are some classic songs from other performers (among them Campbell for Galveston). Which is kind of a shame since always when I've heard a Webb version vs another version, I've preferred the Webb version.

It just sounds like a hitting-the-highway-on-my-motorcycle-without-my helmet-on type of song.

Scored the winner in the 1970 cup final replay against Leeds at Old Trafford as I recall.

I can't be bothered to read the first 9 pages, but curious to know how many people have already declared it the worst album Bruce has ever made!
