    I’ve always been rather indifferent about Campbell, but this tribute in Rolling Stone by songwriter Jimmy Webb made me reassess my feelings (I’ve always felt Webb is the one who never got the credit he deserved). I knew Campbell “played around,” so to speak, but I never realized just how much and with whom.

    “I believe that Glen was to American music what the Beatles were to British music. I’m not talking about my songs, I’m talking about the countless records that he played on, including ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling,’ ‘Viva Las Vegas,’ ‘Johnny Angel,’ ‘Along Comes Mary,’ records with the Velvet Underground, Jefferson Airplane, the Mamas and Papas’ records. He played with all kinds of genres, with different instrumentation and different styles. If it was a just and righteous world, Glen would be credited as one of the great, seminal influences of all time. He was a secret weapon in the armory of Sixties record producers.”

      im6,
      I too was amazed about Glen Campbell’s career, how little I knew about him. That he played for so many singers blew me away. This article is unbelievable. I only knew him for his own hits, the Webb songs. Now I see him larger than life, the way I should have always seen him.

      After I posted the usually number, I remembered Glen Campbell and knew I needed two post him and his music.
