Hi MikeM. Welcome.

Any chance you are the same MikeM that posted I think it was on you tube quite a few years back at as I remember Glen performing at like a fair. If I remember correctly, the song was Witchita Lineman??

I have ordered the entire bundle from the Official Glen Site and haven't heard from them at all! I emailed them to check on my order and they said they were working on it--does anyone have a phone number??? Thanks. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Hey MikeM, you joined! Awesome. Thanks for your post. My copy arrived today. Listening to it as I write. It's a very entertaining listen!

There's a new review of the album on allmusic.com. An excerpt:
Perhaps these recordings lack cinematic pizazz and the Jordanaires, but Campbell is a charismatic, lively presence on these tunes, rarely attempting to mimic Elvis' swagger (he does do a bit of Presley's signature lower-register growl on "Anyone Can Play," though) and just singing these songs with gusto and precision. During the period these demos were recorded, Campbell was in the process of launching his own career as a vocalist, and it's not hard to imagine that he used this opportunity to figure out how to decisively deliver a variety of styles: rock & roll, big ballad pop, blues, vaudeville shuffles, and Hollywood razzmatazz. The variety is a testament to Weisman but the success of the music is down to Campbell, who makes this intentionally frothy material seem compelling -- sometimes more compelling than the King himself, at least as far as these songs are concerned.

I agree with the reviewer!

My cd actually arrived 11/16 and the audio is excellent. Tracks 7 & 13 have studio talking before the songs start. Interesting, track lengths are not listed. Jacket liner mentions 30 songs recorded for Elvis. Wonder if they'll release the remaining tracks. Sports bar I go to watch games, the internet jukeboxes has this cd listed for playing.

From 1964 to 1968—in between recording sessions with the Wrecking Crew, touring with the Beach Boys, and recording his own albums—Glen Campbell was recruited to record songs for the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley. Originally intended for Elvis's ears only, eighteen of these recently unearthed and unreleased gems will be released together on CD, LP and digitally for the first time, more than half a century later, as the lost album Sings For The King on November 16 via Capitol/UMe.
