By the time I get to Phoenix  performed by  Dorothy Ashby  (1969)
Composed by Webb
Arranged by Richard Evans
From: USA
Mood: happy summer funky
Recommended by delicado [profile] on Friday 20th April 2001

The idea of a funky jazz harp rendition of this classic Jim Webb song is probably cheesy to some people, but trust me, this one works brilliantly. The opening shimmers delightfully with fender rhodes piano, strings, and a huge breakbeat. Dorothy's harp then takes over, and we move into a nice pop/funk/jazz take on the song. The relentless beat is pretty funny when you compare this version to others (e.g. the Glen Campbell hit version, also Nick Cave's classic stripped down version from 'Kicking against the pricks'), but it is really very charming, happy stuff. A similar funk/pop hybrid occurs on her version of 'Windmills of your mind' - highly recommended.

from Dorothy's Harp (Cadet)

Other Versions: Nick Cave's version is great. Very different to this one though
