Thanks Randy for that post. I never heard that song before. One of those songs that were a hit in the USA but never crossed over to the other side of the Atlantic.

On Glen's musical peers topic, it says it's locked so posting this one here. [Unlocked now and moved your post to this topic, Randy, as well as Cowpoke's reply. Thanks! ~Dee]

Didn't realize until reading on wikipedia that the song "Precious and few" by the group Climax included some of Glen's wrecking crew band mates. Happens to be one the songs I play regularly on you tube.

James Keach, producer and director of "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me" recently produced a new Hands-Only CPR training video for The American Heart Association (AHA). In addition to producing the video, a public service announcement titled "The Mix-Up", Mr. Keach also appears in the video with actor-comedian Wendi McLendon-Covey. They parody "recent award show mix-ups" (namely, "La La Land") with an important message for saving lives with CPR. You can watch the AHA video here:

i am still working on a Brian Wilson Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Tour post.
Can't seem to do this concert justice with words.

Meanwhile, if you would like to watch the touring concert online, a live, professionally filmed concert video was recently uploaded in HiDef on YouTube.
The concert opens with The Beach Boys performing some of their hits.
After intermission, they perform the entire "Pet Sounds" album complete with barking dogs!
They conclude the concert with a rockin' set of more Beach Boys' hit songs, the audience on their feet.
Turn UP the volume and enjoy! :D

Coming soon! A write-up by a fan who experienced "The Wall of Sound" at Brian Wilson's 50th Anniversary of Pet Sounds Tour. Final performances are coming up this year.
If you are a fan of "Pet Sounds", Brian Wilson, and/or The Beach Boys, "God Only Knows" you shouldn't miss the "Good Vibrations" at this concert!

Glen Campbell's peer, Willie Nelson, released a new studio album, "God's Problem Child" on April 28, 2017, the eve of his 84th birthday. It is his 61st studio album and has already entered the Billboard Country chart at No. 1, making it the artist's second U.S. country chart-topper in less than two years. His 2015 release, "Django and Jimmie," a musical collaboration with Merle Haggard, debuted at the top of the Billboard Country chart in June of that year. In February 2017, Willie Nelson took home the win for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for "Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin" at the Grammy Awards (see related post below).

The title track of "God's Problem Child" was written by Jamey Johnson and Tony Joe White and features vocals by Leon Russell in one of his last recordings. Alison Krauss provides background vocals on the tracks "True Love" and "Little House on the Hill". The original album title, I'm Not Dead, refers to the recurrent hoaxes announcing Nelson's death. "Delete and Fast-Forward" describes Nelson's view on the 2016 United States elections. The release includes "He Won't Ever Be Gone", a tribute song penned by Gary Nicholson for Merle Haggard.

This album is one of Nelson's first albums to address mortality and gives it both serious contemplation and humor. Happily, "Trigger" (the name of Nelson's most well-known, most-beloved guitar) figures prominently throughout the recordings and is also pictured in the liner notes for the CD format.

Billboard describes "God's Problem Child" as...
a tightly-woven, poignant collection of ruminations on aging and fading faculties that amounts to Nelson's most moving album in decades.
CMT's review (excerpt):
OK, music lovers, lift a toast or hit your applause button app in honor of the irreplaceable Willie Nelson, who tops Billboard‘s country albums chart this week with his puckishly dubbed God’s Problem Child.
God should have more kids like that.
NPR's review (excerpt):
He still sings with grace, and it's moving to hear his vocal instrument finally beginning to betray a bit of frailty in his ninth decade. Temperate, fickle and revelatory in turns, his is truly a voice to trust.
Below are two music videos promoting "God's Problem Child", released on Willie Nelson's official YT channel and representing the different emotions beautifully expressed by Willie Nelson in one of his best and most personal albums in years:

Cool post Dee. Thanks. Looks like Willie is even more multi talented than I though.... singer, guitar player, songwriter, actor, farm aid initiator and now... writing books as well.

Pretty Paper A Christmas Tale_by Willie Nelson_2016-gcf.jpg
Pretty Paper A Christmas Tale_by Willie Nelson_2016-gcf.jpg (52.37 KiB) Viewed 1564 times
Glen Campbell's long-time friend and peer, Willie Nelson, continues to be busier than a two-headed woodpecker! :)
Willie's penned song "Pretty Paper", a holiday classic, has been covered by many artists including Glen Campbell on his October 1968 album, That Christmas Feeling, and the great Roy Orbison in November 1963. Nelson recorded his own version produced by Chet Atkins in November 1964.
Now Willie has published a book --the story behind the song-- by the same title, and it looks to be a good read according to David Martindale for Star-Telegram:
As a country-music songwriter and recording artist, Willie Nelson has done OK for himself over the years. Maybe even a little better than OK.
But one could argue after reading Nelson’s Pretty Paper, a sweet new Christmas novel inspired by his beloved ballad, that the man missed his calling.
Willie established long ago that he can conjure up a haunting two-minute tale in three-quarter time. But perhaps he should have been writing long-form feel-good fiction as well — because Pretty Paper is a good story well told. - David Martindale

"Willie Nelson turns his ‘Pretty Paper’ tune into a sweet novel"
