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.

Glen Campbell is a great singer. All of the songs were great. Highly recommended.

If you're up to hearing some really first-rate country music from the 1960s and 70s, then check out this "Greatest Hits" CD, featuring the singing talents of Glen Campbell (who also played guitar and co-wrote some of these tunes, as well).

A 4-time Grammy Award winner, Glen Campbell (born 1936) sings some of his most popular songs on this 16-song disc, such as - Country Boy, Try A Little Kindness, Wichita Lineman, and Southern Nights, to name but a few.

After fifty years in the music business, Campbell has recorded 70 albums and sold nearly 45 million records, worldwide.

Sad to say - Today, Glen Campbell (now 78 years old) permanently resides as a patient at an Alzheimer's long-term care and treatment facility.
