3 comments on “Exploring New Music: Glen Campbell

  1. Great review Jane. Since last summer, I’ve purchased most of Glen Campbell’s cds and some dvds ( mostly UK tour and his tv show). I always loved his music but was too busy with
    raising little kids. Now I can enjoy all my favs from Alfie to Glen and Michael.
    I even bought his book ( Autobiography)and a piece of sheet music ( If You Go Away) from 1960’s. There was a commemorative piece in People Magazine after his passing. Additionally
    the release of The Wrecking Crew documentary discusses his career with them
    and his move towards having his “own” band who could play well- something we see more of now. He was also a close friend of Alice Cooper in later life. There is a YouTube interview with Alice Cooper if you are interested.
    I find all these links and influences on music then and now fascinating. I love Alfie singing these two songs- he is fabulous as we know!. Thanks again for your digging into other music.

  2. I loved Glen Campbell in the 70s and probably still have a few of his LPs somewhere.
    Saw a really interesting documentary about him a little while ago. As well as being a good singer, he was an amazing guitar player.
    He told the story there about the time he spent taking the place of one of the Beach Boys.
    Thanks Jane for bringing him to mind, will have to have a listen again.
    Glad you liked him.

  3. Used love Glen Campbell and his music. After reading your blog I will go and listen to his music and love him and his music again.
