Beth,

Listening to Glen perform JW songs is a wonderful, he's covered so many, so well....it's a joy to listen to a magical pairing of genius songwriter and his master interpretive singer.

Beyond the obvious tracks here are some lesser known tracks on various GC albums worth seeking out:

Off Bloodline Album- Christiaan No
Off Southern Nights- Early Morning Song and This is Sarah's Song
off Light Years- Lightning In A Bottle

off Reunion- Ocean In His Eyes and You Might As Well Smile are personal favs in addition to Moons A Harsh Mistress.

They'll provide endless hours of enjoyment. Also many gems on youtube of Glen performing various JW songs over the years.

Beth - Hi and welcome to the forum. I have just discovered two Glen/Jimmy collaborations on the reissue of the CD "It's Just a Matter of Time." namely - Shattered and Do What You Gotta Do! They are both wonderful and new to me.

I have been listening to a lot of Jimmy Webb and a lot of that is GC singing Jimmy Webb. Both are amazing. Some of the songs are lyrically simple but so effective like "Galveston" and "Wichita Lineman." Others are crypic and poetic like "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" or even "Susie."But, all of them are complex and unique musically. Glen seems to connect with every one of them that he sings. I really love his take on "Moon" and "If You're Still Within the Sound of My Voice."

I am posting a link to the Kansas City Star review of Jimmy Webb's show at Knuckleheads in KC, Friday night. Wish I'd been there to hear his stories about all of those great songs and performers, (including Glen Campbell).

I found the article linked below somewhere today, but I may have found it by Google rather than Fan Forum. It's long, prints to about 7 or 8 pages, but it is a delightful interview with Jimmy Webb, with his recollections about the CMA evening with Glen on stage, and the guitar; and touring with Alzheimer's. Also a lot about Jimmy's composing, performing, and growth in his music. It's just a great read. If it's already on the Forum, just scratch it.

About "Wichita Lineman" AWARD - for most play or so on... given to Glen Campbell 1999!

Was THIS for most play song in "the Century" on the big American Country Radio Station!

What is THE RIGHT STORY???
NOT 100% shure?


This is what I understand (or where can I find MORE INFO):

In September 1999, 3 of Glen C. songs were honoured by ASCAP as the most played country songs of all time on Country radio stations, “Wichita lineman” as number #no. 1., “Galveston” on place #no. 11.

I am most appreciative to have become part of this Glen Campbell website, to be able to access a collection of these many interesting articles, etc. Jimmy Webb has created a wonderful body of work, and his long relationship with Glen has benefited both. His friendship and respect for Glen is so obviously warm.

Jimmy Webb never fails to mention Glen in his interviews.

Here's another interesting one:
