Born in Billstown, Arkansas (1936) - (singer/songwriter/guitarist) Glen Travis Campbell was best known for a series of hit songs he recorded in the 1960s and 1970s, and for hosting a music and comedy variety show called "The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour" on CBS television, from January 1969 through June 1972.
Campbell released over 70 albums in a career that spanned five decades, accumulating over 45 million record sales, worldwide, including 12 gold albums, four platinum albums, and one double-platinum album.
This "Greatest Hits" CD contains 16 tracks in all which were recorded by Campbell (with accompanying musicians) primarily in the years from 1968-1975. Three of my favourite tunes here are - "Gentle on My Mind", "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", and "Wichita Lineman".
*Note* - In 2017 - Glen Campbell (81 at the time) died following a long, hard battle with Alzheimer's disease.
