Re: Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb

This is going to be a good read for the fans. But it will only be up to the early seventies as I understand it, so I hope there will be a second edition follow up,otherwise it will be a half baked cake in the rain.

Re: Glen Campbell's New DVD/CD Releases: Adiós June 9th

Thanks for the info Dee, I have listened to the Everybody's talking track. Glen's voice obviously isn't at its best, but a good performance non the less. I agree with you jay, the picture looks like it has been morphed in some way and Glen's hair doesn't seem quite right either. Dee, on the top of t...

Re: Glen's Banjo in the B/W Photo of Guitars

I was at the folk club the other night and two guys came up and played Highwayman. It amazes me how many times different people have played that song at various clubs. But this was a first on a banjo. It was nice because there is a banjo on Glen's original recording of the song.

Re: Would Glen have supported Pres. Donald Trump? + JW Songs

Exactly Randy, "many people listen but don't hear," as Jimmy Webb said on one of the concerts I attended. The song is about the personal story of this guy who happens to be in love with a young lady from Galveston. Much like Wichita Lineman is also a love song about a guy longing to be with someone ...

Re: Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb

Hi Dee, I listed to the Soul Music link you posted. Thank you for posting it. I had not heard it before. The programme was previously broadcast on 23rd August 2011 and 27th August 2011. It was then re broadcast on 9th December 2016. It looks primarily at what the song meant to various listeners of t...

Re: Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb

Hi Dee, I will listen to this broadcast ASAP. I don't recall hearing this one. Thanks for posting. AS regards, great lines. Jimmy really is the best but I heard a great line in the theme tune to the film "random hearts" which goes. " You are nothing less than perfect , in a less than perfect world"....

Re: New DVD / CD Releases

It is amazing to think Gentle is 50 years old now. I can still remember buying the album when I worked at a Hifi TV store. The record came with a selection of other albums. I was just getting into Glen at the time and didn't know of the album but then there it was right in front of me. I of course a...
