NEW OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR GLEN CAMPBELL'S "ADIOS" (single track)


Posted by clashmusic.com at:

Love clashmusic's preface to the music video.
Help me, fans! The video itself does not make any sense to me.
Furthermore, I was shocked at the pyro-ending.

Thoughts, fans? What did I miss here? What do you think about it?

This new interview with Kim and Ashley Campbell is an in-depth one with revelations about some of the tracks on Glen's new album (we love the backstories!) as well as how 'Adios' evolved from a fun studio project into a finished studio album. Also shared: information about one of the tracks that did not make it on the album, Kim's teasers about what fans could hear in the future (possibly a recording of Glen and Elvis Presley!), Glen and Kim's first date, Ashley's upcoming album, one of Kim's new initiatives for the blog she publishes, and much more.

They are also very frank about Glen's current condition; he is not aware of his new studio album. He wasn't able to understand anything about the last Grammy he received for "I'm Not Gonna Miss You". Due to late-stage Alzheimer's disease, Glen has not been able to process new information for some time now. [Is Alz's a damnable disease or what? -Dee]

For his fans smart enough to pick up “Adios,” his final studio album, joy likely will waltz – or perhaps Texas two-step – with melancholy while listening to Glen singing at a time when he knew he was going away forever, as memories of love, accomplishment and friendship vanish." -Interview with Kim Campbell and Carl Jackson ('the sideman')

This is a great interview with Carl Jackson who speaks from his heart about his long-time friend, Glen Campbell, and Glen's new album, 'Adios'. An excerpt:

The whole thing ('Adios') just came together, I truly believe, in the way that it was supposed to. Glen Campbell is just the best, and I mean that with all my heart. He's the best singer that I've ever heard and I mean that technically, as well as just beautiful to my ear. His voice always was -- and I realize people can have different things that they like and I'm sure there are people that would argue, "Oh, he's the best" -- but I'm talking not just how pleasing his voice was, but how great he was technically. I tell people to go find me a bad note on YouTube and I'll pay ya for it. - Carl Jackson

FUN MUSIC CHART FACT!

Last Saturday, when I learned 'Adios' was in the top 40 of Billboard's top 200 albums chart, I realized that Glen is, in a way, now on the top 40 twice!
His 1977 hit song, "Southern Nights", is track #6 on "Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2: Awesome Mix Vol. 2 Soundtrack", a compilation album now at No. 37 after peaking at 4 with 8 weeks on the chart.
For Glen Campbell discographers who document this kind of information (which we do here on Glen Campbell Forums), "Southern Nights" on the Guardians soundtrack is a 2003 Capitol Records remastered track.

Here is a more critical reviews of Adios.

The singer sounds frail and uncertain throughout, which occasionally makes for some uneasy listening — particularly with the overly polished production. As a farewell, it lacks the gravity of Johnny Cash’s defining work. But that hardly diminishes the emotional punch of hearing one of the rock era’s defining voices fade away.


From: http://www.sfchronicle.com/music/articl ... 236408.php

I don't agree with the statement that Glen sounds frail and uncertain throughout. I think Glen sounds great most of the time. I do agree that the production is sometimes a bit too polished.

On the other hand, Allmusic gives Adios 3,5 out of 5 stars.

Adiós ultimately seems more like a coda than a grand farewell, with the album displaying a suitable modesty that suits the somewhat reduced circumstances of the artist. But it's also a potent reminder of Glen Campbell's talent, style, and musical legacy, and this album is the recorded curtain call he truly deserves.
