Update: This new album release is now tentatively slated for November 2, 2018 (instead of early October).


'Glen Sings For The King' - by Glen Campbell

CD / Label UMe


Label's Description:
In 1965, Glen Campbell was part of the infamous "Wrecking Crew," recording sessions for the era's biggest pop songs, touring with the Beach Boys, and recording his own albums. He was signed to Capitol Records and only two years away from his breakthrough single, "Gentle On My Mind." By night, Campbell was cutting full studio-quality demos for Ben Weisman, the legendary songwriter who wrote 57 songs that were recorded by Elvis Presley - the most Elvis recorded by one songwriter.

Campbell had the uncanny knack to sing in the same key as Elvis, and so between 1965-1967 he recorded numerous Weisman songs to send to Elvis. 18 of these previously unreleased recordings have been recovered and restored, and will be released together on a new collection, Sings For The King. Elvis went on to record 12 of the 18 songs himself, but we are now able to hear Campbell's versions for the first time ever. The collection highlights Campbell's incredible vocal range and guitar skills, and also draws focus to Weisman's understanding of all the styles of music Elvis could perform.

We call on Him
Whenever storm clouds gather
We call on Him to light our darkest day
Why must it be that only when we're lonely
And hopes are dim, we call on Him

Why don't we call on Him before we lose our way
To count our blessings and thank Him while we may

We call on Him when no-one else will answer
We ask of Him a reason to go on
When our cup of joy becomes a cup of sorrow
Filled to the brim, we call on Him

Why don't we call on Him before we lose our way
To count our blessings and thank Him while we may

I am still waiting for either piano/guitar chords for Jeff Dayton's "Long Slow Train Out of Town"

I also need the words and chords to his other track called "Fall Back in Love."

If anyone could assist, I would really appreciate this. These songs are from Jeff Dayton's Tribute CD to Glen called, "The Glen Connection." Fabulous CD and very talented man...

Recently in this topic, we were chatting about the new "Best of Glen Campbell" DVD imported from Australia. It didn't appear to be legit.

However, good news, Glen Campbell fans! arlw sleuthed this DVD and here is her update, posted for y'all:

Got this DVD we spoke about----AWESOME and it’s not a bootleg….I would go ahead and buy this if you can!!

The Best of Glen Campbell – This is an imported DVD from Australia and it contains 46 Videos from overseas. It appears to have different takes of Glen from various time periods, but they are all captured on this DVD. And, they list the song that Glen sings with sub-titles, which show the original release and the latest version. Nice touch on their part. This is actually listed in “English, Stereo, PAL Format AND ALL REGIONS”.

It plays in Blu-Ray devises and also on the computer so it is Region Free! When you put in the DVD, it comes up “Elm Street Media 2011”, but the label on the case says “2017- Golden Lane Records/MVD Visual” - POSDVD32.

Picture disc DVD of Glen and on the bottom of the DVD, it is written, “Manufactured and Distributed by Universal Music, Australia Pty Limited, Made in Australia.” Great selection of tracks and artists. “Possum DVD Video.” (0-602567-446583). Terrific imported DVD from Australia. They covered it all! -ar

The images of the DVD case, front and back with the tracks, are posted in this same thread. Here's the short-cut to save you time from scrolling:

Thank you, ar! Your update is tremendous news!

Too Late To Worry CD arrived today. The front is the same as the LP. The housing section for the CD is also correct and nicely done. The CD itself is green with blue and yellow writing. The CD is made in the EU-Grey Scale Company. Weird part of this is, the back where they list the tracks--picture of Glen is nice, but doesn't match the time frame!! Haven't listened to this yet but one would think it's not re-mastered either.....Nice job overall by Grey Scale.

Heard from Amazon today--the latest release of Glen, "Too Late To Worry, Too Blue To Cry" CD has been shipped! My copy is due to arrive tomorrow. Hope you all get yours as well.

Just listened to this CD Dee....This is one of Glen's shortest recorded LP's/CD!!! It is NOT REMASTERED. The CD has some scratch type noises in between the tracks and a faint noise within the recording itself. All signs lead to the original recording.

For those that ordered this, the track that Amazon lists of "Greensleeves" is incorrect. The one listed on this CD from England which is "Green, Green" is correct. I also did a search on MY LP's from all over the world and there are quite a few, from the UK, New Zealand, Australia, and about 20 other places--they ALL SHOW "Green, Green" as one of the recorded tracks, so this one from England has the correct information. Sure hope this helps! :D

I haven't had time to listen to the CD yet to answer the question of being re-mastered or not, but in answer to the other question Dee, "Green, Green" was a hit song in 1963 for The New Christy Minstrels. Timeline seems correct...

Hi Ar!

Thank you -- I will add "Made in England" to Greyscale in my tracking, too. Curious!

"Green, Green" it is. The LP and CD match up.
Wasn't this song a hit for The New Christy Minstrels?

Can you tell if this CD was remastered?
I can't "hear" it, if it was remastered, by listening to the CD with computer speakers. Will try later using the stereo system.
Also, I may be hearing the tiniest bit of spinning-vinyl surface noise between tracks! ??
The drums on La Bamba are very distinct.

Dee
