Kudos to the Wikipedia editors/writers who recently updated/enhanced Glen Campbell's biography on Wikipedia.
They made much needed improvements to the content and also added quotes and a new photo.
Glen's bio is a challenge to summarize within the constraints of the Wikipedia platform. I know how challenging it is because I had tried to update it back in 2012 and failed!

(One suggestion: the bio requires more content about Glen and Kim's relationship. Right now, the bio has more description about Glen and "TT" than about his marriage to Kim.)

Why is Wikipedia editing important?

Since Glen's death, his Wikipedia page has had more than one million views. More than one million!
This number of views is hugely larger than all of last week's views on his official social media pages combined.

Wikipedia editors, if you are following this topic:

Revision needed: 'Adios' was not released on "Big Machine Records".
Glen's new album was released on the Universal Music Enterprises label.
See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glen_Camp ... _re-issues

Also the album page for 'Adios' is still incorrect, I believe:
"Recorded in Nashville between 2012 and 2013 (awkward wording), the album was released on June 9, 2017."
"Recorded November 2012 – January 2013" (If this information is correct, it is not sourced.)

Also, this information in the "Personnel" section should be clarified:
Roger Miller – acoustic guitar and vocals on "Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)" -- ADD: INTRO ONLY (Obviously, Roger is not performing on the full track with Glen and Vince.)

Thank you!

Did you see the album already has its own page?

Glen Campbell's "Southern Nights" on "Awesome Mix Vol. 2", from the Marvel Studios film "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is a remastered track from 2003, courtesy of Capitol Nashville Records under license from Universal Music Enterprise. (From the liner notes) Billboard's May 20, 2017 chart shows the compilation soundtrack holding its #8 place on Billboard 200 charts.

Thank you, Cowpoke.
Really appreciate your time.
Between "2012 and 2013" didn't read clearly because there is no year between 2012 and 2013. :)
But adding the months (Nov 2012 and Jan 2013) is clearer.

Did a few of your suggestions. I think they got the date right. It cannot be anything else than between Nov 2012 and Jan 2013. But it would be nice to have a direct source on that.

Nice start on "Adios"! Fast, too! Thank you to the editor!

Can I made a few editing suggestions?

1-The album will be released on the record label, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). (Not BMLG)

2-Four of the twelve songs are written by Jimmy Webb including the album's title song. (This is key information, I suggest.)

3-I don't believe this content (below, in italics) should be in the article, at least not yet, because it is based on assumption, right? Or is there a source providing specific information about when Glen recorded the tracks for ADIOS?
Recorded in Nashville between 2012 and 2013

4-This info can be added to the introductory paragraph about the guest artists who appear on ADIOS:
Roger Miller’s “Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me) features a home recording of Miller himself performing the song before seguing into Campbell’s version, on which Glen is joined by Vince Gill on harmony. - Source: The Second Disc


5-Can YouTube be used as a creditable source of information? See References.

Additions/corrections in capital letters:

Title/Writer(s)/Length
1. "Everybody's Talkin'" Fred Neil
2. "Just Like Always" SONGWRITER: JIMMY WEBB
3. "Funny How Time Slips Away" (featuring Willie Nelson) Willie Nelson
4. "Arkansas Farmboy" SONGWRITER: CARL JACKSON
5. "Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)" (intro by Roger Miller) SONGWRITER: ROGER MILLER
6. "Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)" (featuring Vince Gill) SONGWRITER: ROGER MILLER
7. "It Won't Bring Her Back" SONGWRITER: JIMMY WEBB
8. "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" Bob Dylan
9. "She Thinks I Still Care" Dickey Lee, Steve Duffy
10. "Postcard from Paris" Jeff Cohen, Kara DioGuardi, Kimberly Perry, Neil Perry, Reid Perry -- THIS SONG WAS WRITTEN BY JIMMY WEBB (SONG ALSO RELEASED AS "WISH YOU WERE HERE") ALSO ADD THIS INFO OBTAINED FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: VOCALS: GLEN CAMPBELL (LEAD) WITH HIS CHILDREN CAL, SHANNON AND ASHLEY CAMPBELL
11. "A Thing Called Love" Jerry Reed
12. "Adiós" JIMMY WEBB

The official press release may be helpful in identifying the vocals for each track:

Wow! Thank you, Cowpoke!

And now you or another editor can add Glen's new album, "Adios", too? :)

(Did I just hear you say "Adios, Dee"? lol)
