The 10 song All-Time Favorite Hits only scratches the surface of ace session-guitarist-turned-superstar-singer Campbell's extensive output, but provides a good if skimpy sampling of some of the artist's most memorable hits. Included are Campbell's classic Jimmy Webb-penned '60s hits "Wichita Lineman," "Galveston," and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," plus the similarly popular "Gentle On My Mind" and "Dreams of the Everyday Housewife." Rounding out the package are his '70s countrypolitan smashes "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Southern Nights," and "Country Boy (You've Got Your Feet In L.A.)." For a more thorough account of Campbell's career, fans might want to check out Razor and Tie's 2 CD set The Glen Campbell Collection (1962-1989) or Capitol's 3 volume Essential Glen Campbell series. --Scott Schinder

"This would appear to be the only Campbell compilation to include all of his hits from the 60s and 70s, so it does its job well enough. There's many classics here: "Wichita Lineman"; "Phoenix"; "Where's the Playground"; "Galveston". But there's also a lot of stuff only your elderly aunties would like - I mean "Honey Come Back" and "See You on Sunday" in particular are pretty toe-curling songs. In fact, despite being less definitive a hits collection, the European release THE CAPITOL YEARS 65/77 is a better listen, it even includes the Brian Wilson produced "Guess I'm Dumb"."
A great Mix of songs

"Although I generally don't like country music, I'm very impressed by this collection of great songs with widespread appeal. There are the '60s Jimmy Webb classics with strings like "By the Time I Get To Phoenix" and "Wichita Lineman," the later hits from the '80s country revival era like "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Country Boy," and some great newer ones I somehow missed altogether. There is some very nice banjo playing and exciting chords in "Bloodline" and "Faithless Love," and a very tasty guitar solo in "She's Gone, Gone, Gone." The album also had all the obscure 1970 songs I wanted, like "Honey Come Back" and "All I Have To Do Is Dream.""
