All the essential hits and much more / 5
Glen's success was truly international, so there has been a steady stream of compilations of his music down the years in Britain, America and elsewhere. Most British compilations consist of some of his big hits and a selection of cover versions of famous songs. This one is different, as it contains a much higher proportion of original material. There are a few covers here, but they are included because they were big hits for Glen, or milestones in his career, or have otherwise become identified with him.

All Glen's UK hits are included, together with any other songs that were important in his career. Among the classic songs to be found here are Gentle on my mind, By the time I get to Phoenix, Dreams of the everyday housewife, Wichita lineman, Reason to believe, Galveston, Where's the playground Susie, Try a little kindness, All I have to do is dream (with Bobbie Gentry), Honey come back, It's only make believe, Rhinestone cowboy, Country boy you got your feet in LA, Southern nights and Sunflower.

Buffy Sainte-Marie wrote Universal Soldier, which became a UK hit for Donovan but provided Glen with his first American top 50 hit. Brian Wilson of the Beach boys wrote Guess I'm dumb, on which Glen was backed by the Honeys, an excellent female trio. True grit was the theme from the movie starring John Wayne, in which Glen also appeared. This is Sarah's song is a great way to end an outstanding compilation.

If you just want the obvious big hits, a single CD will probably be all you need, but for those who want to explore further, this compilation provides that opportunity. Students of American pop and country charts will find plenty of songs in those charts that are not featured here but every track here deserves its place here and there are no serious omissions from a British perspective. As such, this is as good a Glen Campbell collection as you are likely to find anywhere.
Song "Southern Nights"
Southern nights, Have you ever felt a southern night
Free as a breeze, not to mention the trees
Whistling tunes that you know and love so-oh

Southern nights, Just as good even when closed your eyes
I apologi-ise to any one who can truly say
That he has found a better way-hay, yeah

Southern skies, Have you ever noticed southern skies (southern skies)
Rich precious beauty lies just beyond the eye
It goes running through the soul, like the stories told of old

Old man, He and his dog that walk the old land
Every flower tou-ouched by his cold hand
As he slowly walked by weeping willows would cry for joy, joy

Feels so good, feels so good it's frightening
Wish I could stop this world from fighting

La-da-da-dah-dah, da-da-da-da-da-dah-dah
da-da-dah, da-da-dah

Mystery, like this and many others in the trees
Blow in the ni-ight
In the southern skies

Southern nights
They feel so good it's frightening
Wish I could (southern nights) stop this world from fighting

Da-da-da-dah-dah, da-da-da-da-da-dah-dah
La-da-dah, da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-dah

Southern skies

No lack of respect among top contenders (USA Today)
Back when the Recording Academy doled out trophies to Starland Vocal Band, Toto and (collective wince) Milli Vanilli, Grammy-bashing was about as challenging as shooting Phish in a barrel. This year, outside of quibbles about overlooked pets or over-rewarded chart hogs, critics found fewer glaring snubs and flubs to carp about. In the coveted best-album category, the chief cause for complaint has ...
