Well put, Randy!

Ashley (and her musically-talented siblings) obviously lived up to her Dad's advice: "Practice".

I agree Dee, it is the best yet. She inherited well from her Mom and Dad, and she has refined that inheritance beautifully. What she is doing is not easy, she makes it look that way. Hasn't happened overnite, she has worked hard and earned it.

NEVER a mistake.

Outstanding :D

Ashley Campbell performing and talking about her Dad at Studio B at B 925 FM in Sacramento, California.

To Randy--I believe this is the best performance of "Remembering" yet.
For me, the guitar with violin is a perfect combination for this "sadly, beautiful" song.

You are welcome, arlw!
Hopefully, these albums will be available one day on CD or digitally.
I won't post how much I paid for "United We Stand" about 4 years ago on the secondary market.
:oops:

Part 2, arlw....Cowpoke posted this additional discography info on June 4, 2014:
Guys... I finally got it! Debby's debut album from 1992 called Burning Bridges! At some point I was starting to doubt if it even really existed. I am so happy to add this to my collection.

It's a musicassette and has 8 songs in total.

Side A
Burning Bridges
Swingin' the Blues
Crazy
Just When I Needed You Most

Side B
Oh! Lonesome Me
Broken Heart
You Really Had Me Goin'
Blue Side of Goodbye

Producer: Denny Franks
Engineered by: Bert Jones
Recorded: Crystal Recording and Sound, Branson, 1992

My favorite song is.... Burning Bridges. It has Debby singing the lead vocal beautifully and Glen singing harmony! And on top of that, Debby's aunts Sandy Brink and Barbara Frazier also do background vocals on the album.
Below is the photo of this cassette that Cowpoke had also posted. Debby had shared with me that Barbara had taken this photo for the album, I think she said this bridge is in Branson; maybe you can confirm?

Hi, arlw,

late 80s/early 90s - Debby performs for a couple of years with the band Justice (made up of Orange County, California Sherrifs)

I am very Happy for Ashley and Shannon! They are all over EBay with pictures that are signed by none other than "Glen"! I don't own any but, didn't know if you saw this! I thought it was neat to have their father sign the picture

Also--if someone can post this info, it would be greatly appreciated. For the life of me, I can't remember the name of Debby Campbell's group that she was in/on I think the cover of the LP as well that she did back I think in the 70's? There is a name of the group. I think Hyde posted it sometime ago and Debby replied to him....I know she did "Burning Bridges" on a cassette form only and the father /daughter one from Branson, which is a CD/Cassette, of which I have. Just need the name of the group she was in and I think they only did the 1 album???? Thanks---I posted this here as it is also Glen's daughter.....

Thanks for posting this new link, Randy! It was fun to watch different performances of the same songs and also Ashley's sheer enjoyment for performing!
You know what I noticed about Ashley singing "Remembering" at The Wolf studio?
She sang with her eyes closed at times--just like her Dad. First time I had noticed this similarity. Really getting in deep with the song's meaning.
Ha! Nice of her to exempt Eli! especially because he plays so well!
Like "Better Boyfriend", "Looks like time" has a humorous kick in it, too. :)
I was trying to think of other female songwriters who write songs like Boyfriend and Time, but I am not coming up with songwriter names other than Dolly Parton.
