Default Meet Glen Campbell 2008

Are any of you fans or listened to the album Meet Glen Campbell 2008. It's basically an album of cover versions. But it's awesome, one of my current favourite albums.
He covers U2, Travis, Foo Fights, Green Day and any more. Even if you're not a typical Glen Campbell or even country music fan I would recommend giving this a listen. I thought it would have been really bad and uninteresting but I found it to be great instead!

In the 80's my parents said to my (ex) wife that they were going to see Glen Campbell at an awful venue on the Qld/NSW border called The Twin Towns Services Club. I should not be too hard on it as my Dad took me to see The Dave Brubeck Quartet there but it is one of those places full of blue haired old ladies playing slot machines and sunburnt tourists thinking they are in paradise. You get the picture.

The ex was insistent that we go so I was basically forced to go. I whined I moaned I groaned and got taken kicking and screaming to see this bloke who I knew from Rhinestone Cowboy a song I was dismissive off to be polite.

Well to put it bluntly he was fucking brilliant. I reckon I was first on my feet at the end calling for more. He not only had a great voice he could actually play the guitar. His touring band was sublime and he had the crowd eating out the palm of his hand.

Just shows ya. Never judge an artist by a song.

i've heard bits and pieces of the new album

personally, i love glen cambell,.....rhinestone cowboy and all,....

gentle on my mind has got to be one of my all time fav songs,.....if i could just fine 'that' guy:

It's knowin' that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleepin' bag
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch
And it's knowin' I'm not shackled
By forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line
That keeps you in the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

It's not clingin' to the rocks and ivy
Planted on their columns now that bind me
Or something that somebody said because
They thought we fit together walkin'
It's just knowing that the world
Will not be cursing or forgiving
When I walk along some railroad track and find
That you're movin' on the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
'cause she turned and I was gone
I still might run in silence
Tears of joy might stain my face
And the summer sun might burn me till I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see
You walkin' on the back roads
By the rivers flowin' gentle on my mind

I dip my cup of soup back from a gurglin' cracklin' cauldron
In some train yard
My beard a rustlin' coal pile
And a dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands 'round a tin can
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
That you're waitin' from the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
Ever smilin', ever gentle on my mind
i changed my mind; i changed my mind;now i'm feeling different

all that time, wasted
i wish i was a little more delicate
i wish my
i wish my
i wish my
i wish my
i wish my name was clementine - sarah jaffe
