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.

Thank you, Glen, for your last three remarkable albums, each one very different in concept but linked to each other by the love and dedication you and others invested in these albums.

It's Glen's highest charting album in the UK since Glen Campbell's Twenty Golden Greats hit the number 1 spot in the British Charts in 1976. In fact, it's Glen's first regular studio album to ever hit the UK top 10 album charts!

Exciting news, fans!

'ADIOS' says "HELLO" to the U.K.'s Top 100 Biggest Artist Albums of the Week Chart (16 June 2017 - 22 June 2017) with its debut at No. 3

Thank you to Glen Campbell's strong fan base in the United Kingdom! The Top 100 Album chart is compiled by the Official Charts Company, based on sales of CDs, downloads, vinyl and weighted audio streams.

Glen returns to the charts for the first time since (Cowpoke, could you help us by filling in the year here? :) ) .
Also, once again, Glen charts with a lead over The Beatles (in this case, their special 50th anniversary edition of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band).
I feel as if we are in a time warp. Time has contracted back to the sixties with Glen Campbell and The Beatles both on the music charts.
The beat goes on....
