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

Hi Cowpoke, Yes, what you say is spot on. I was totally taken off guard when I first played the song. Some songs grow on you and others are instant hits. Of course we all know the song by Jimmy and Linda's performances. I loved Linda's version but Glen's has just blown me away. As you say Glen hasn'...

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

Oh Cowpoke, This is so wonderful. Everything about this performance is so beautiful. The arrangement, Glen's vocals and in particular Glen's emotional impact in his singing. It is Glen at his best.

Re: Glen Campbell in Hawaii
