Glen Campbell: The Rhinestone Cowboy sparkles to the end...
Express (U.K.)

This is a great article about the selection of songs on ADIOS:
Glen’s wife of almost 35 years, Kim, explains how the album was made. “The songs on Adios were ones I’d heard Glen sing around the house for the last 30 years, and they’re favourites of his that he wished he’d gone into the studio to record – we got there just in the nick of time.”

...Glen and I were visiting Carl (date/year unknown) and discussing the things Glen wanted to do before he left this world, and the songs he wanted to record.

"One of them was Jerry Reed’s version of Bob Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right, the song that Glen always played when he picked up a guitar.

“We made a list of the songs, and as we were sat there, Glen started singing Roger Miller’s Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me), and I had a tape recorder on me and recorded it – that’s the version that you can hear on the album.”

If you only read one article or story about Glen's upcoming album, this is the one to read.
Kim Campbell and Carl Jackson share the backstory of the making of ADIOS as well as Carl's long association and special friendship with Glen.

About this new album for fans:
Kim says that she hopes that the fans who have supported Glen -- and their family -- will like what they hear. “I think they will be pleased. I think they will hear the same beautiful phrasing and interpretation that Glen is known for. I think it’s a gift to the fans, and also to future generations. I’m just so pleased that we were able to do it.”

'Adiós' is Glen Campbell's 64th studio album and features four songs including "Adiós" written by Jimmy Webb.

Glen and Jimmy are pictured here on the cover of Glen's official March 1975 International Fan Club Newsletter. According to the club's secretary, Rosemary (who would be referred to as an administrator or club president these days), this picture was one of a series of photos shot at Jimmy's house for the cover of Glen's 1974 album, 'Reunion: The Songs of Jimmy Webb'.

The release of 'Adiós' will offer in part another reunion of Glen and Jimmy's music. I won't say "final reunion" because Jimmy may have audio recordings of his own with Glen Campbell. If he does, then perhaps we will be able to hear these recordings one day in the future. Also, he may yet release video footage from a concert he and Glen gave at Feinstein's in New York City.

Songs We Love: Glen Campbell, 'Arkansas Farmboy'
www.NPR.org
By Ann Powers
June 2, 2017


NPR music staff and public radio hosts chose Glen Campbell's biographical song, "Arkansas Farmboy", as one of the "Songs We Love".
...the golden voice, Campbell's greatest musical attribute, remains: His singing communicates pathos and grace in equal measure.

Glen Campbell's upcoming album, ADIOS, includes a brief recording by the legendary singer and songwriter Roger Miller.

ADIOS TRIVIA: Did you know that Glen was Roger's best man at his wedding in 1978?
Roger married musician and singer Mary Arnold, who was a member of the country-rock band "Kenny Rogers and The First Edition".
This is a photo of Glen and Roger at his wedding.
