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.
