It was no less that the great Damien Jurado who recently stated that "When I die, I want to be buried with my Glen Campbell record collection. That's how much I love Glen Campbell". It's a sentiment many share and fully endorse. There is no need to dwell here on the fact that this is Campbell's 65th album and that he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's realistically curtailing any significant further musical output. Some may also point that it re-treads familiar ground in revisiting his greatest hits. But it is the nature of the return to these classics that makes this record so special. It was Johnny Cash in American Recordings who set the template for such records and in "See you there" initially recorded during the 2011 "Ghost On The Canvas" sessions, Campbell has matched that standard. This is no maudlin outing that dwells on his debilitating condition but a celebration of some of the greatest songs penned in pop music sung by one of its most distinctive and best voices.

In one sense this is Glen Campbell for the alternative country generation. Nowhere is this clearer than on his take of Jimmy Webb's greatest song "Wichita Linesman". The original lush string arrangement is absent and instead Campbell sings it as a barroom ballad. His voice still sounds like musical honey and the depth that comes through age adds a juggernaut sized level of poignancy to a great performance. Those other Webb classics are equally well done. "By the time I get to Phoenix" is stripped back to gentle acoustics with the odd strain in Campbell's performance adding to the songs sense of regret. "Galveston" is even more bare bones with the slide guitar and accordion lending it a much more contemplative and reflective feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than A Memory 11 Aug 2013
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:MP3 Download
It would be oblivious to say I did not feel a lump in my throat listening to this new release. Glen Campbell is legendary and this new recently recorded compilation of his most famous recordings is not without sentiment but is more of a festival and celebration of his talent. Glen sang these famous numbers, plus more, in 2011 at the time of his epic 'Ghost On The Canvas'. Producers Dave Darling and Dave Kaplan have stripped the original instrumental accompaniments to highlight Glen's vocals with marvellous arrangements. It mostly sounds like an unplugged Glen Campbell with the addition of tasteful slide guitar, instruments and backing vocals in a simplistic way, yet it works superbly.

The hits are all here. Glen's voice has changed with his age but the honey-tones are still there and he hits the notes and timing with the man who still has the attraction to beguile. It is an impossible task to pick out the highlights as they are all gems. 'Witchita Linesman' and 'Phoenix' contain lyrics and melodies beyond criticism. In 'Postcard From Paris', he sings "I don't know what it's all about, I wish you were here when the shadows fall". Glen, we will be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply superb 17 Aug 2013
By M. A. Dunnington VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is simply superb. Glen's interpretation of Jimmy Webb's "Postcards From Paris" is most definitely the best version of this song ever recorded. Yes the John Denver version is good but Glen's is outstanding. Two versions on the CD, I prefer the simpler arrangement but both are "simply superb". The other outstanding track is Glen's own composition "There's No Me..Without You." On the "Ghosts" album this beautiful song was drowned by echo and heavy instruments....on this CD you hear the song as it should be .... a beautiful ballad and brilliantly sung by Glen. I have to admit I did not take to "Ghosts" and this new CD is much more in line with "Meet Glen Campbell", which was a truly remarkable album and perhaps the best Glen had recorded in many a year. This new CD to me is like Volume 2 of "Meet"......thank you to all concerned for producing another simply superb album from Glen Campbell. I waited for a week before writing this review so I could hear the CD several times....luckily I had ordered it months ago and because of "Auto-Rip" I could listen to it a day before the official release and delivery of my CD. Thank you Amazon for a great new addition "Auto-Rip".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fitting Swansong 12 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD
Glen Campbell was diagnosed with alzheimer's two years ago, so for him to release an album is quite an amazing feat. And this isn't just a another compilation album. This is new recordings of old tracks, and some new tracks.
The new recordings tend to be slightly different arrangements of his classic tracks, and this breathes a breath of fresh air into them. The first two tracks are a great example of this, 'Hey Little One' and 'Wichita Lineman'. Gone are the strings and overproduced sound. There's now steel guitars and accordions, and another thing that's changed slightly is the vocals. For a man who's now nearly 80 he still has a fantastic voice. It's got more emotion to it than the original recordings, and I think it just adds so much to it. The new tracks are as good as the old, and the whole album is great.
To me these tracks are just timeless. I hate to say it, but I actually prefer some of these to the original. I just find they have better depth, and are less cheesy at times. It really is just a breath of fresh air. The fact that the Glen Campbell also has alzheimer's and the man is getting close to his ninth decade is even more remarkable.
I have enormous respect for Glen Campbell after making this album. The more sobering thought is that this is mist likely his swansong. I would be extremely surprised if he ever records another album again. But this a good and fitting ending.
I thoroughly recommend any fan to give this a listen. It really is that good.
