Almanac Music, a partner site of Stereo Stories, has just published a long essay about the 1968 Jimmy Webb song By The Time I Get To Phoenix, made famous by Glen Campbell.

Written by Peter Warrington, the 2000 words – and accompanying maps – take us from the west coast of the US to the song’s landmarks: Phoenix, Albuquerque, Oklahoma.

Along the way, Warrington takes us down many side-roads as he researches, ponders,muses, and wonders about music, geography and the cartography of  loss and love.

It’s quite a trip.
