Glen Campbell was releasing hit singles in the past, 60’s and 70’s. They were distinctive, sure, but they also had a way of masking the power of the songs that Campbell so artfully performed stand out beyond all the rest.
“See You There,” Glen Campbell upcoming album being released on August 13 brings down the arrangements and casts eight of Campbell’s hits in a more intimate light. The album, comes out on Speakeasy this upcoming weekend, the album includes four songs Campbell cut during sessions for his 2011 album, called “Ghost on the Canvas,” which is when he recorded new vocal takes on his classic songs. Surfdog Records founder Dave Kaplan and longtime collaborator Dave Darling enlisted musicians to complement them with subtle, rootsy arrangements that lay bare an elegiac quality on songs like “Gentle on My Mind” or “By the Time I Get to Phoenix.” Check out the album because this maybe Glen Campbell last release due to Alzheimer’s. He’s a legend and an artist who has done some many great things with his music, it would be sad not to be heard by this gifted musician.
