Live albums are seldom perfect, but this one comes close to bottling the essence of late Jimmy Webb.

These concerts were held in interesting, intimate spaces that were well suited to the personal nature of the performances. The anecdotes on the famous that punctuate the tracks are good enough to avoid accusations of gratuitous name dropping, although given the roll call of singers who have borrowed these songs, a bit of name dropping would surely be in order.

The songs themselves have quality written through them like childhood sticks of seaside rock, and some are worth the price of admission on their own. Jimmy's voice exhibits all its old uncertainties, but perhaps this is a price worth paying for the privilege of hearing the songs as they were imagined.

If I have one regret it is that the recording does not feature Mr Webb's delightful slip of the tongue in the lyric of "The Moon's a Harsh Mistress" at the Worcester concert.

'The sky is made of scone' must be something of a classic from one of popular music's more original songwriters, and he saw the funny side.

Now that would have been worth six stars!

Jimmy sounds good but some of the editing and cut offs at the end of the tracks leaves allot to be desired his stories are funny and if any of you have seen him in concert it really bring it all back to you. so to sum up good music but get a better sound editor next time.

Listening to this live CD reminds me of why I stopped going to Jimmy Webb concerts several years ago as there's far too many anecdotes and not enough music. Yes, eleven songs was always just about all you got at a Webb concert, which considering the amount of gems he's written over the last forty + years is a ludicrously small amount. Given the short rations it's inevitable that favourites get left out of the running order and for instance there's no 'Up, Up and Away', 'Do What You Gotta Do' and 'The Moon's a Harsh Mistress'. A two hour concert minus most if not all the anecdotes with about ten more songs would be a gig worth going to and a double live CD worth buying.

His stories in song may be better recorded or performed elsewhere, e.g. Ten Easy Pieces, from 1995-96, or his update of the same Ten Easy Pieces + Four, from 2010, but this live performance shows off his raconteur side between songs, his love for the artists he wrote songs for or with, and his sincerity as an artist. Jimmy Webb is comfortable with himself in these performances and sure of his self-deprecating humorous tales. He is warmly received by an appreciative audience. His piano is in good form; his voice interprets his own songs made popular by others over the last four decades, making for a special evening with one of the only artists of the last 50 years best known for song-writing than performing. A story intro for each song makes one wish for another ten or more stories, from one whose live raconteur ability ranks with the very best.

If you can't see Jimmy live, this is the next best thing 22 July 2007
By R. Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
I had the privilege of seeing Mr. Webb last night in concert at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, TN. I wasn't entirely sure I 'needed' the "Live and at Large". I'm glad I made the purchase. After the concert, Mr. Webb came out to talk to fans and sign books and CDs. Rare honor to meet a childhood hero.

What you hear on "Live and at Large" is just a sample of what a live concert is like. Last night, it was just him and his piano and between songs, he talked about the artists who'd sung his songs. Yes, there were longer reminiscences of Richard Harris, Harry Nilsson, and Frank Sinatra--from a man who worked and liked all three.

I don't know if Webb has a setlist for these concerts. The CD wasn't too different from last night's performance. I'm very glad he included the live "Highwayman," which was his opening song last night. Also, "No Sign of Age" which was dedicated to Richard Harris, just about broke my heart.

He did not do any new material though he referenced the CD that Gauguin came from. I still believe that "Gauguin in the High Seas" is going to be a standard at some point, when we find a storyteller-singer to give it the treatment it deserves.

I'll never forget what Webb said about Richard Harris--and no, I'm not telling a thing. We were lucky enough to hear more--and Webb's words truly brought the rogue Irishman to life. If you love this very talented composer, this CD should be part of your collection. And yes--if you get a chance to hear him live, go. He's engaging, warm, and very worth it.

As he sang at the close of the close of "Highwayman".

Perhaps I will become a songwriter again...

This work is timeless and the concert was unforgettable. "Live and at Large" is just a taste of that.

This is one of the great albums of the decade 22 Dec. 2007
By Marjorie Cope - Published on Amazon.com

I woke up last night about four am and reached for my IPOD where knew I would find this album of Jimmy's. I have listened to it many times before, and out of everything that is on my listening stations and players around the house and on the road, this is the music I am turning to. I put my earplugs on and, in the dark before dawn, listened, once again, to his voice, full of tenderness and memory, full of the edge of the world and the view of the stars. His is the voice and the writing of my times, present and past; these new songs are as good as anything he ever wrote, and he is a master writer but also a master singer. We all listen for the voices that can get us through our bright days and dark nights. His voice lifts me, his lyrics haunt and heal.
"Gauguin" is a great great song, and so is "No Signs of Age." I have always loved "The Highwayman"and "McCarther Park", and they are there, along with "Lineman for the County;" but the new ones are as good as the better know songs, and all are beautifully performed. Each one is a memorable journey.
I decided when the sun was up and the birds outside began to sing, that I am going to send "Live and at Large" to many friends and to my granddaughter, all my Irish brothers and my sister, to all those renegades and relatives, fearsome men and women I love--they have to hear this CD. It is remarkable.

Set the Elephants Free 29 Jun. 2008
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com

Jimmy Webb's "Live & at Large" that was released through his web site is an excellent recording. Webb's music, usually with piano as his primary backing as the cover photo shot shows, touches our tender feelings. The opener from his recent CD Twilight of the Renegades is "Paul Gauguin in the South Seas" shines as Webb sings on the chorus, "Searching for Paradise, just a little farther on." As a live recording of a concert, Webb speaks about many of the artists who recorded his work. "Campo de Encino," originally on Webb's Letters album, combined humor and a clunky lyric to be one of his most unusual songs & one of my favorites, "I want to drive a sporty car, be a pinball star, have a waterfall bar that revolves around my swimming pool; I want to take touch therapy, I want to wipe out VD and set the elephants free but most of all I just want to soar away." "Galveston" Webb introduces as one produced from the Vietnam war era. His voice trembling with emotion trembles on the lyric, "I still hear your sea waves flashing; & I watch the cannon flashing, & I clean my gun & I dream of Galveston." "All I Know" has a lovely melody that Art Garfunkel made popular, "All my plans keep falling through, all my plans depend on you to help them grow, I love you & that's all I know." Jimmy Webb gives a nice introduction about Rosemary Clooney who sang "Time Flies" on an Emmy-nominated episode of "E.R." The concert concludes with a long version of "MacArthur Park." Jimmy Webb is one of the master songwriters of the late 20th century. He is also one of the most under-appreciated singers of our time, his voice a bit worn, but still beautiful and fragile. This live concert is an excellent set. Enjoy!

Just Jimmy and a piano 7 Aug. 2010
By William Merrill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
(3 & 1/2 stars) The format for this live album is pretty basic: Jimmy Webb singing with only his piano playing for accompaniment and his narration in between songs (storytelling). The stories are told in Jimmy's soft Oklahoma drawl and are mostly centered around various famous singers who have covered his songs. Mr. Webb's vocals are an acquired taste, in the same way as Kris Kristofferson's, but I like the craggy, real way he sings (although the vibrato sometimes gets a bit too heavy). The song selection for this concert CD features tried-and-true Webb favorites such as "Galveston" and "All I Know," but also a few newer songs that fit well with the older material. His piano playing is fine, and appropriate for almost every tune (except an occasional slip into Liberace-isms). The repeat play-ability of this disc is questionable, both because of a limited interest in hearing the spoken passages again (although they can be skipped when the disc is played), and because there is a "warts and all" quality to the performances. An example is the sing-along near the end of "Lightning In A Bottle," where it took two tries to get the audience to sing properly. It's a humorous moment, but worth hearing again?? Still, at its best, Live and at Large can stir the soul, such as on "All I Know."

If you are a Jimmy Webb fan, you'll love this. Jim talks and tells stories of the songs and the performers. I love it...
