Number 884 - Glen Campbell
Number 884 Glen Campbell "Galveston" (1969) . .
"Gentle On My Mind" is my personal favourite but "Galveston & Wichita Lineman" is probably the more famous songs associated to the man. Now of course you all new he was a member in the band "The Beach Boys" didn't you ? Huh? Oh for petes sake, one of the biggest bands ever and ya didn't know?? Good gravy.
He was a full-fledged member of The Beach Boys, filling in for an ailing Brian Wilson on tour in 1964 and 1965 and he also played on the Pet Sounds album." Don't say i never teach you anything (shakes head)
"His biggest hits in 1968–1969 were with evocative songs written by Jimmy Webb: "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", "Wichita Lineman," "Where's The Playground Susie?", and "Galveston". An album of mainly Webb-penned compositions Reunion: The Songs of Jimmy Webb, released in 1974 is regarded by many as Campbell's finest album, although it produced no hit single records. "Wichita Lineman" was selected as one of the greatest songs of the 20th century by Mojo magazine in 1997 and by Blender in 2001"

like and everyone has dislikes. Remember music is like clothing.. there are many styles,
so why on earth would all people want to wear jockey "Y" fronts???
