Fred Molin, a producer and longtime Jimmy Webb, collaborator cajoled the great songwriter to participate in this tribute. Just Across the River features 13 classic Webb tunes performed by the Webb with an all-star band and guest appearances by friends, collaborators, admirers, and fellow recording artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, Billy Joel, Willie Nelson, Glen Campbell, Michael McDonald, Mark Knopfler, J.D. Souther, Vince Gill, and Lucinda Williams. Webb also performs three songs here unaccompanied by other singers. The band Molin includes a host of Nashville's best: John Hobbs (keyboards), Bryan Sutton and John Willis (on guitars, mandolin, and banjo), Larry Paxton (bass), Greg Morrow and Eddie Bayers (drums), Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin), Jeff Taylor (accordion), Pat Buchanan (electric guitars), and Paul Franklin (pedal steel and dobro). There are instrumental cameos, too, including one by Jerry Douglas, whose dobro adorns "Wichita Lineman." Given Webb's stature, none of this is surprising. What is, however, especially given the gorgeous sound of this set, is that the vasty majority of it was recorded live over two days in a Nashville studio -- vocals were overdubbed of course. Some of the highlights include "Oklahoma Nights," with Gill's beautiful tenor balancing the harmonies; "The Highwayman," on which Mark Knopfler underscores Webb's vocal with his own, creating a dark, melancholy authenticity; "Wichita Lineman," featuring Joel, whose empathic feel for the duet is remarkable, while his voice contrasts beautifully with Webb's. Shockingly, Browne's appearance on "P.F. Sloan" helps to make the song a real tragedy for an era as well as a man, rather than a merely ironic one. Throughout, but especially on Webb's own re-recordings, especially "It Won't Bring Her Back," and "Cowboy Hall of Fame," Webb is displayed in excellent voice. ~ Thom Jurek

Paste (magazine) - "Nelson's presence is a boon on the country ballad 'If You See Me Getting Smaller, ' and Gill growls with plenty of heart on opener 'Oklahoma Nights.'"
Uncut (magazine) (p.105) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Webb plays well off Willie Nelson and Mark Knopfler."
