Re: Bruce Springsteen pays tribute to Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb on solo album Western Stars

In fact the sound of this song called Stones comes closer to Glen's trademark sound: the combination of a full orchestra and a bass note guitar solo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73ZIQktIfTo After listening to a few of these songs I must say that melodically, these songs are no match for the Jimm...

Re: Bruce Springsteen pays tribute to Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb on solo album Western Stars

Well that is an interesting question. In my memory this album has been lying on the shelves for quite some time. Bruce was present during the 2012 Grammys during which Glen of course did his Rhinestone Cowboy performance. And Bruce participated in the documentary (I think they asked him during that ...

Bruce Springsteen pays tribute to Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb on solo album Western Stars

Bruce Springsteen has finally released his Glen Campbell inspired solo album called "Western Stars" he recorded a few years back. “Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb, Burt Bacharach, those kinds of records. I don’t know if people will hear those influences, but that was what I had in my mind,” Springsteen ex...

Re: Announcing Glen Campbell's Newest DVD/CD Releases

Or maybe "You'll Never Walk Alone" is also from "Love Is The Answer". I see it is on both "My Hits and Love Songs" and "Love is The Answer".

Re: Announcing Glen Campbell's Newest DVD/CD Releases

Sorry for my late reply but... interesting that they replaced the fourth disc (originally with live performances) with tracks from the most recent albums. 1. You'll Never Walk Alone (My Hits and Love Songs) 2. People Get Ready (Love is the Answer) 3. Amazing Grace (Love is the Answer) 4. Lean On Me ...

Re: The Hitching Post in Albuquerque, NM Where Glen Campbell Played

Hi KMFrye54, yes I have come across that story several times. I agree, things must have been already unrepairable by that point. In one of the tv documentaries done about Glen, he said that one of the last arguments they had went along the lines of "are you going to release that stupid cowboy song a...

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

Yes getting closer! My guess is that Glen visited with Michael Parkinson around the time he was touring the UK (April - May 1981). Let's see if we can find a performance from 1980 or very early 1981 with that ending!

Re: Glen Campbell Forums on YouTube

Time for a new addition to our youtube channel... From the Goodtime Hour (March 1970) Glen performing a wonderful and moving rendition of Marty Robbins' Lord You Gave Me a Mountain, in support of Marty who was recuperating from a bypass operation at the time. I feel he makes it an extra special perf...

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

Update: I have a recording of Glen performing Rhinestone Cowboy in 1980. Here he ends with a high-pitched "yeah like a rhinestone cowboy!" but during the song he sings "just like them rhinestone cowboys... and girls!" Was that the start of it? I think we assume that somewhere in 1980 or 1981 he star...
