I realize it's bitter that more and more posts under "New DVD / CD Releases" are actually about releases from other artists covering Glen's songs, but I do really want to draw your attention to this particular cover. As posted before, Alison Kraus covered Gentle on My Mind on her latest album. In an interview she says something about a youtube video with Glen.

One of her new tracks is a gorgeous reading of Gentle On My Mind, a song made famous in the Sixties by the Rhinestone Cowboy himself, Glen Campbell.
Alison can't help drawing my attention to a YouTube clip of his fabulous duet with Stevie Wonder on Bob Dylan's Blowin' In The Wind.
"You're thinking, 'Don't come in, Glen, how can you match Stevie?' but when he does, he's absolutely amazing."

Here's a nice little quiz. Match these "lines" with the songs they came from and match the songs with the artist who performed them. Hint: you should get at least one answer right! :)

It is amazing to think Gentle is 50 years old now. I can still remember buying the album when I worked at a Hifi TV store. The record came with a selection of other albums. I was just getting into Glen at the time and didn't know of the album but then there it was right in front of me. I of course asked to buy it there and then. The same thing happened with Highwayman later. There was a joy in finding these albums, especially the more difficult albums like Norwood, which I spotted in a shop window. We didn't have the benefit of Ebay etc so it was a case of hunting them down through different record shops and collectors' suppliers. Still I got there in the end.

Great find, Mike. Thanks for posting it. New to me, too!

In reply to your question below about "Waltzes", yes, I remember this wonderful performance!
It's a favourite of mine, and I posted it for other fans to enjoy, too, here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=323&p=6879#p6879
Thank you again,
Dee

I just noticed this track by Bobbie Gentry.


I never knew she had recorded this song. I also noticed Lynn Anderson has a version with the name Bobby instead of Susie.

I noticed this show was being broadcast on The Ultimate Oldies Show. It is regarding the Wrecking Crew. I haven't heard it all yet but I imagine Glen will be included.

Dee, I am glad you enjoyed Glen at the Pebble Mill show. Do you remember he also sang "They still dance to Waltzes in England" at the end of the show. Great version. Sadly, The BBC closed down that site and I believe it has been demolished some years ago.

Yes, I love the Pebble Mill studio version, too, Mike & Cowpoke.
I was blessed to have received a share of it several years ago from a very good friend. The Butterfly Effect. :)

Totally agree, Glen's ballad versions are wonderful too. And that Pebble Mill version is awesome. It brings the song down to its core. It doesn't need any embellishments to convince.

That is probably right Cowpoke. The first time you hear something is the one that creates the deeper impression on the mind. Having said that I loved the ballad version of Galveston from the Festival Hall concert which was the first time I recalled hearing that song. I found it very moving and loved the arrangement. However I also fell in love with the recorded version when I heard it on an album for the first time. I felt the arrangement reflected the dramatic situation of the war the guy was in and in my mind created an ominous feel of the battle he was involved in. Still love both versions equally. But as you say Cowpoke, Glen took the song to another level in his live versions. I was especially taken by the version Glen performed at the Pebble Mill studio in my very own city of Birmingham. No guitar solo but a great delivery I thought.

Of course the other wonderful version is on Sessions with Jimmy on the piano.
