All the essential hits and some other great songs,
This review is from: Rhinestone Cowboy-The Best Of (Audio CD)
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 and this one is typical.
All Glen's UK hits are included except one minor hit (Dream baby). Among the classic songs to be found here (not all of them UK hits) 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.
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.
Although Glen recorded many great songs that didn't make it on to this compilation, this will suffice for anybody who just wants a single CD of Glen's music containing all the obvious classics and a few other goodies.
