A new topic! Exclusive to Glen Campbell Forums! We are dedicating this topic to covers of both Glen Campbell penned songs and Jimmy Webb songs recorded by Glen.
We are inspired by "Erik the Dane", a forums member and friend who has long documented covers of Jimmy Webb's penned songs. Thanks, Erik!
First up...."Less of Me"
written by Glen Campbell and covered by Bobby Bridger of Houston, Texas on his album "Vagabond Heart". Listen here
Glen's song was not widely covered, but The Everly Brothers did a cover and of course Glen and Bobbie Gentry sang it on their 1968 album. Are there other covers?
BTW, the lyrics were apparently inspired by a poem, "A Creed", written by Edgar A. Guest and published around 1909. See: http://www.democraticunderground.com/1018165220
