4.0 out of 5 stars Solid return by the old man, 5 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Meet Glen Campbell (Audio CD)
This is a surprisingly strong return, given that Mr Campbell is apparently now 72 and has had well documented problems of late. However, his voice holds up well especially given the material and atists he is covering (Travis, Tom Petty (x2), U2, Foo Fighters, The Replacements, Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne). The production is akin to some of his old recordings in his heyday. I agree that this works better for him - more than if he'd gone down the "Rick Rubin acoustic/pared back" route that suited Messrs. Cash and Diamond so much. Some of the tracks grow on you more with several plays [esp "Jesus" (Reed), "Grow Old With Me" (Lennon)]. For me the best are "Sadly Beautiful" (The Replacements) and Jackson Browne's "These Days". Of course this won't ever compare with those fantastic Jimmy Webb songs, but nonetheless an album worth buying.
