Hi all!

The Big National Danish Radio P4, DENMARK, my area, plays the next 5 days, started out this morning with "Phoenix" with Glen Campbell and play rest of the week a Jimmy Webb song.

This is because MY Jimmy Webb concert I had 18th February 2011 up at world famous artmuseum LOUISIANA in Humlebaek, north of Copenhagen.

Air between danish morning time 8:10 to 8:20 I guess - 8:10 a.m. to 8:20 a.m.

In UK they are 1 hour behind!

In US around 8-11 hour behind I guess - so maybe late evening or night you are able to hear.

Tomorrow 10th January will be "Wichita lineman" also with G.C. Wednesday 11th will be "Galveston" with again G.C. Thursday 12th it will be "MacArthur Park", disco vers. with Donna Summer and ends Friday 13th with again G.C. singing "Where`s the playground Susie?".

Danish Radio P4 internet radio hear!

Very nice interview with Jimmy Webb. He retells the story how he learned about Glen Campbell in a little more detail here and furthermore talks at length about Glen. A must-hear!

Was looking over my big music files, most I have now, is with JIMMY WEBB and related.

Or I will need a bigger apartment - HA!

Count records, radio copy, rare issue, concert issue from radio station, vhs, dvd and so on and can tell

I found 134 different version, where
GLEN CAMPBELL sings J.W.s tunes.

If J.W. songs is in a medley, let`s say 3 J.W. songs sung by G.C., I count this as 3.

Well aware many are the same songs, but sung different.

If I count this never issue so far, and some extra dvd, vhs recordings from tv show and so on, I have in files we reach over 150 all, I guess.

sincerely

Erik - I also love "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" - beautiful piano instrumentals, haunting melody and lyrics.

Stephen - Glad to know there's another JD fan on here. Seeing John Denver in concert at age 17 was a memory I'll hold onto forever. He's one of my all-time favorites, too. One of his older songs I absolutely have always loved is "Rhymes and Reasons." But there are so many favorites, I could go on all day.
Great YT video of John and Glen singing "Don't it Make you Wanna go Home." Give it a look, if you haven't already done. Another favorite of mine.

Dear Margaret & Stephen!

Thanks for reply!

MAYBE I think one of Jimmy Webb finest SONG EVER is "The Moon`s A Harsh Mistress".

This is one of his most recorded songs in the last many years!

And yes, Glens live version is just great!

Maybe the most MOVING moment, when we was at the concert at The Royal Festival Hall, London, 22th October and meet Glen after the concert!

Karen Carpenters also recorded this tune, but this IS NOT OUT so far on a record - maybe someday!
Think she maybe recorded one more J.W. song!


sincerely

Erik-'The flower that shattered the stone' must be one of Denvers finest albums. A very rare situation for me,I preferred Denvers version to Glen's studio version. But I prefer Glen's version live in concert the best.

All told Denver was a fine performer and I love the Hallmark film of his life,even it it is a bit syrupy.

Not seeing Denver in concert is on my list of life's regrets.

Erik - I have seen that video of John Denver singing Postcard from Paris, and he does a great job. He's one of my favorite artists. But I must admit to loving Glen's version (YT video from last year in the UK) with just TJ on keyboards. They changed it up for Ghost on the Canvas, and I would have preferred the simpler version, which Glen sang so beautifully last year. It's a beautiful song!

Sometimes we say in Denmark; Some can prefer the mother, others better the daughter.

I have just got in files the BONUS only tracks from G.C.s "Ghosts on the canvas" cd, who include J.W.s song "Wish You Was Here".

I know this better as "Postcard From Paris", recorded by late John Denver in a very beautiful version back in 1999 on his rare cd "The flower that shattered the stone".
J.W. is maybe playing piano on this number, but he is not mention on inlay in cd.
There is a VIDEO (dvd) out with this song with John Denver, where he short tell about the song and mention J.W.

What VERSION who is best, it not easy to say, as I wrote first!

Much funny!

Have a 4 cd promo box from Motown!

Titel is JOBETE (Music) - Million Performance Songs from 1991 - 87 tracks.

Here YOU FIND Glen Campbell singing "Galveston", because it is a Jobete copyright.

Also there is "Didn`t we" sung by Supremes, READ Diana Ross, live on same box.
