Forgot to say thanks for the info Cowpoke, on "I'll be me." The film has been broadcast here in the UK. I recorded it on my Sky box and have watched twice so far.

Good for you Cowpoke. It was a nice treat to be sure. It is a very good song as well. Why did he sing it in English ?.

Friends, the life of a Glen Campbell fan in the Netherlands is tough. ;) Not many people know him and his music is only played sporadically on radio and tv. However, tonight was a good night. This evening on prime time Dutch television, singer Douwe Bob talked about his musical influences. Guess who he talked about first!

They played a clip of Wichita Lineman.

After the interview Douwe Bob performed his new song Jacob's Song, inspired by Wichita Lineman, with a string orchestra behind him. Very nice song.

The show can be watched online here. The part about Glen Campbell and Wichita Lineman starts at around 39 minutes.

PS: the show is called 'De Wereld Draait Door' which funny enough can be translated as... [And] The World Keeps Spinning! :D

Cowpoke, It's a great shame The Talk of the Town concert isn't released as a full concert. The quality of the footage I have seen is pretty good. Surely a nice DVD package of that show would be very welcome by all the fans, as it would be one of Glen's earliest video recorded shows. I would think. it would sell well on Amazon etc.

Yes Mike, at least the Glen Campbell Music Show that aired on BBC in 1975 (and later in the USA under the name Glen Campbell and Friends) and also Glen's 1981 Dublin concert and 1990 Doncaster concert are owned by Howard Kruger. I think this also goes for Glen's 1972 performance on Talk of the Town. Although quite a few tracks have been released on DVD now, the complete concert has never been released yet.

I spotted that Kings of Country was broadcast last night. The one in which Glen sings By the time I get to Phoenix. This was followed by Glen Live at the Festival Hall. The funny thing was, the announcer used the introduction to the BBC documentary about Glen called Glen Campbell Rhinestone Cowboy. How that happened I do not know. This performance is one of Glen's best. I recorded it on an audio tape at the time with a microphone. It was originally shown a s a two part show 45 minutes each. Several years later I got the VHS release which ran for 60 minutes. I really wanyed the missing 30 minutes,but to no avail. Decades passed, then of course they broadcast the complete show on BBC4. My joy was complete. Now it has been shown several times over the last few years which is fine, but they have so much other material, I wish they would show that instead, but I guess it's all to do with who owns the rights to it. Probably Jeffery Kruger, I would think.

U.S. fans...Mark your calendars to watch the documentary film, "The Highwaymen: Friends Till The End", premiering on PBS's American Masters on Friday, May 27th (check your local listings). The Highwaymen’s all-time number one single hit is Jimmy Webb's "Highwayman", and their version earned Jimmy Webb a Grammy Award for Best Country Song in 1986.

For info about the doc as well as video previews, visit: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/americanmasters ... film/7084/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I hope that this American Masters doc provides the full history of the song, but of course it will be focused on the supergroup.

From Wikipedia:

May 1977 - Jimmy Webb's version of "Highwayman" was first released on his album "El Mirage".

1978 - After Jimmy brought the song to Glen Campbell, he recorded it in 1978.* Glen wanted Capitol Records to release the song as a single, but Capitol refused. After recording thirty albums for the only record label he had worked with since 1962, Campbell walked out of the main studios of Capitol, quitting the label. (Jimmy Webb shares this story in his tribute show, The Glen Campbell Years - Dee).

1979 - Glen Campbell eventually released the song on his album "Highwayman" in October 1979.

1984 - Glen played the song "Highwayman" for Johnny Cash, who was making a quartet album with Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson. A few years earlier, Webb brought the song to Jennings, but Jennings, having heard the Campbell version, said "I just couldn't see it then". The four were all together in Switzerland doing a television special and decided that they should do a project together. While the four were recording their first album, Marty Stuart again played the song for Cash, saying it would be perfect for them—four verses, four souls, and four of them. Glen then played the song again, this time to all four of them, and the quartet had the name for their new supergroup, The Highwaymen, the name of their first album, Highwayman, and the name of their first single.

*Question to Cowpoke: Is this 1978 recording the same one that ended up on Glen's Highwayman album? If not, do we know what happened to this recording?
Thanks!
Dee
