Oh, okay, thanks Cowpoke.
I wish this album would be released as a two-CD set! I have not heard all of the tracks on this album.

Yes that is Glen's own version of Tequila which he recorded for The Artistry of Glen Campbell.

Thank you, Cowpoke and Hair!
Much appreciated! :)

New question:

Glen had shared with fans (and some publications, I believe) that he did not play or sing on The Champs' "Tequila".

Do we know why "Tequila" was included on volume three of "The Essential Glen Campbell" album?

Is this a different version than The Champs' standard / original "Tequila" recording?

Thanks!

Dee

Okay, I found some more information in the archived versions of the old forum, in a post by Hair!

________________________________________
Regarding the sessions Glen did in the mid-to-late 1990's for a British TV offer album, which eventually came out as the 2-CD "My Hits and Love Songs" set on EMI in 1999, previously unreleased tracks from those sessions keep sneaking out.

The first of these extra tracks appeared on the 2001 2-CD set "Pure Platinum" (Platinum), which paired the 1981 UK live album on disc 1 with a compilation of the "Love Songs" sessions on disc 2. These newly discovered tracks were "Young at Heart" plus re-recordings of "Rhinestone Cowboy", "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", and "Blue Sky Shining".

Then in 2003 came a similar 2-CD set, "Rhinestone Cowboy" (Direct Source), which brought us the previously unreleased "Love Songs" tracks "Colleen" and "Pretend".

Now in 2004 is another "Love Songs" sessions compilation called "Rhinestone Cowboy" (MasterSong), on which there are more previously unreleased tracks, re-recordings of "All the Way", "Didn't We", and "Learning the Blues".

Somewhere out there is one more track from those sessions, a re-recording of "Try a Little Kindness", but I don't know what disc it's on. This brings the total of "Love Songs" tracks up to 28! I wonder how many more there are? Keep monitoring those budget CD packages to see if there are more...

So... "Didn't We" was first released on Rhinestone Cowboy, New Studio Recordings. "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" was already released in 2001 on "Pure Platinum".

Note that unlike Hair, I don't think these recordings are previously unreleased tracks from the Love Songs sessions. I think they were recorded earlier, somewhere in the 80s. But, I cannot prove it. I am still looking for more information about these mysterious tracks!

Thanks Hair, for keeping track of these releases back then!

Thanks so much, Cowpoke!

So, DIDN'T WE was never released on a studio album -- just on this compilation? It hardly seems possible (and I'm certain you are right).
Then, this compilation album (pictured below) is especially significant -- in addition to the other unreleased, unsourced recordings on it!

It's a difficult album to find, at least it was for me. I only recently bought a used one. Thanks again!

Erik, Dee, this is the first release that contained both (these versions of) Didn't We and By the Time I Get to Phoenix that I am aware of.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhineston ... ordings%29" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This release is from 2004.

However, it's possible there was a release before that, that I am not aware of (yet).

Re: Glen Campbell Discography: "Didn't We"

Post by Dee » Fri Dec 19, 2014 9:37 am

Questions from Erik the Dane about "Didn't We" written by Jimmy Webb and sung by Glen Campbell:

Did Glen Campbell `first put out' this song around 2005?

Regarding the studio version:

Looks LIKE it WAS ONLY OUT on a `cheap issue` – NOT on a ´regular issue´.

When was this STUDIO VERSION first out?

And what was the `ORIGINAL ISSUE ` (title) we can find this track on?

ALSO have “Phoenix” included on my EURO issue from 2005 also with album title `By the time I get to Phoenix`.

Many thanks in advance from Erik!

Dee

Thanks, Siblis. I agree...the lyrics are sad...for me, perhaps for you also, this song is a reminder of our mortality and to do what good we can, now, because this is our only chance to do so.

I was thinking about starting a topic about Glen's last song; of the songs he has recorded up to I'm Not Gonna Miss You, which song or songs would we consider an appropriate "last song"?
