3/4. REM bassist Mike Mills continues a profile of singer Glen Campbell , who paid his dues as a session guitarist for the likes of Phil Spector and the Beach Boys before forging a career as a rather unhip, Grammy-winning purveyor of country-inspired easy-listening hits that now rank as pop classics. This instalment recalls Campbell's signature solo work, from his 1967 breakthrough single Gentle on My Mind (widely known despite peaking at 26 in the US pop charts) to his monumental collaborations with songwriter Jimmy Webb - By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Galveston and, in particular,
Wichita Lineman. With input from songwriters Jimmy Webb and Jimmy Bowen , producer/arranger Al DeLory , bassist Carol Kaye , journalist Keith Cameron and Glen Campbell.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
