About this item
Featuring exclusive UK Content. Jimmy Webb is a musical legend. The only artist ever to have received Grammy Awards for music, lyrics, and orchestration, his songs have touched generations and defined artists across decades. Recorded by artists from The 5th Dimension to Glen Campbell, to Isaac Hayes, to Harry Belafonte, to James Brown, to Nick Cave, to Waylon Jennings, to Harry Nilsson, to Hank Marvin, to Sparklehorse, to Scott Walker, Webb’s songs are one of the pillars of the cultural landscape.
The Cake and The Rain is Jimmy Webb’s memoir, touching on his background, musicianship, growth as a songwriter and his many friendships and collaborations with the likes of Frank Sinatra, John Lennon, Harry Nilsson and Elvis Presley. The Wall Street Journal called it “novelistic, perfectly plotted and quite possibly the best pop star autobiography yet written”. It is a spectacular book. With content exclusive to this UK edition
