Glen Campbell: The Glen Campbell Collection (1962-1989)

Colin Escott, Razor & Tie Records, 1997

He could no more forget the years he had played traditional country music than he could forget his mother and father back in Arkansas, but he was looking for a new breed of song from a new breed of songwriter.
