"El Mirage" is Jimmy Webb's sixth album. Released by Atlantic in 1977, it was the first album for which Webb handed production and arrangement duties on to another person: George Martin. It is also notable for containing "The Highwayman", a song that later provided both the name and first hit for The Highwaymen, a country supergroup comprising Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson. Jennings also recorded the track "If You See Me Getting Smaller" for his "'Ol Waylon" lp (1977).
