So true Jay when Glen sang you felt it. Lately I've been watching the BBC doc and love the Carol Kaye comments and Jerry Fuller saying "There's a certain honesty about Glen's rendition of all the songs he's recorded, it's like he lived it, and I to this day wonder if the guy ever did leave Phoenix"

Good morning Bonnie!
Gosh, there are so many songs that Glen did that were better than the folks that get credit for them. Glen could put feeling in his voice...which changed the scope of delivery. You FELT those songs by J. Webb. Jimmy has to be very thankful Glen knew a good song (for him) when he came across it. I think that Glen was able to express, vocally, the way Jimmy felt when he wrote the songs.
The songs on Meet Glen Campbell are another example of ... he just could own a song he liked in his delivery.

I am sure you saw this...but if you didn't, I enjoyed the video.... ... 366033029

Thanks for your reply, Jay. I tuned in to the oldies station Monday evening, which had been paying tribute to Glen on his birthday throughout the day. I was able to hear a few of his songs. At the end of the day, I switched back to my usual talk radio station. The host was wrapping up her show, mentioning and thanking the guests she'd had on her show that night. I was quite surprised to hear her thank Jimmy Webb for joining her by phone, and disappointed that I'd missed it! But there is a podcast of every show posted within a few hours, so this morning I was able to listen to her visit with Jimmy. They spent several minutes at the beginning of the interview talking about Glen, but his birthday was not mentioned. If I'd been listening live, I would have called in to point that out! Jimmy is going to be in concert in this area this weekend, so he was promoting that, and I guess it was just a coincidece that he was on the show on Glen's birthday. I felt lucky that I happened upon it. Jimmy has had a great career, and there are many videos on YouTube of Glen singing Jimmy's songs, and Glen often referred to Jimmy as one of America's finest poets. Glen and Jimmy had a lot of respect for one another's talent. There was nothing better than Glen singing a Jimmy Webb song.

Thanks, Bonnie for dropping in. Yes, it was a pretty melancholy day, with all the pictures of Glen on Facebook and one song leading to another. It does my heart good to know that he is still remembered!

Hi everyone, I'm just stopping by to say I'm thinking of Glen and his family today on what would have been his 83rd birthday. A local oldies radio station has been paying tribute to him today, playing many of his best songs throughout the day. His best songs - what am I saying? - all of his songs were the best. Glen was one of a kind and his music will never be forgotten. All the best to his family.

Interesting to see that Glen's old drummer (George Green) is also playing during that Wrecking Crew tribute!

Attached is the song my brother Maury and I wrote and recorded in my home studio as a tribute to one of our heroes (we’re in our 60s so we have been fortunate to experience Glen since “day one”.)

Longtime Nashville guru, Brent Mason, is on lead guitar. I had hired him before on some originals and when Maury and I did this tune, and we wanted a Glen Campbell guitar in the song, it was a no-brainer that Brent was the guy. Turns out (no surprise) that Brent is a big fan of GC and promised to do his best to answer my challenge of “channeling your best inner GC/Wrecking Crew and go for it.” Well, he did and it is truly the secret sauce that made this special.

I hope you enjoy it.

Hi - I just now joined the forum. I have an original song I recorded as my tribute to Glen and wanted to post it here but it won't let me post an mp3. Is that not allowed on this forum?

thanks in advance
