See You There

Glen Campbell's last LP, 2011's surprising Ghost on the Canvas, set him up impressively with songs by Paul Westerberg, Robert Pollard and other offspring. This set combines new songs with remakes of Campbell's signature singles. Surprise again: What could be a late-game throwaway instead has near-definitive versions of "Wichita Lineman," "Galve­ston" and "Gentle on My Mind," conjuring the originals with a patina of age and minus the arrangement lard. Campbell's voice sounds great, and his phrasing has only improved (listen to how he carves the end note of the "Wichita" chorus). Best is "Rhinestone Cowboy," just electric guitar and the weary voice of a footlight hustler taking his last laps.
