Jimmy Webb @ Musical Instrument Museum|2/1/13
It's always interesting hearing an alternate version of a popular song. That's one of the appeals of live music. But that version is especially worthwhile when it's the original version by the original artist.

Such is the case at a Jimmy Webb concert. A prolific songwriter, Webb amassed an array of hits in the 1960s and 1970s--all performed by other artists. Tonight at the Musical Instrument Museum Webb demonstrated how those hit songs were intended to sound before each recording artist put his or her own touch on it--many earning Grammy Awards.
