By The Time I Get To Phoenix by Jimmy Webb

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. It's quite a trip.
