Childhood Memories

"My father has this on an LP. As a young girl of 7 or 8 years of age, I had a huge crush on Glen Campbell. My father would play LP's for me when I was sick as his way of helping me to feel better. And it always worked. I loved this album back then, and I love it now on CD. I'd long forgotten a couple of my "favorite" songs until I listened to the samples off the CD. While I don't listen to alot of his new music, I love the old classics, they are just "Gentle On My Mind"!"

"This is a walk down memory lane. I remember the songs, the order of the songs, and how much I like this album. Remembering John Hartford from the Glen Campbell show wrote this song and recorded it himself and its appeal to both country and pop charts made me nostalgic for more John Hartford as well. These guys were/are tops in musical talent."
Wonderful tunes from a master--THANK YOU, GLEN CAMPBELL !!!

""Gentle on My Mind" is certainly one of Glen Campbell's best albums. Indeed, it won a Grammy for album of the year in 1967! Glen, who is a guitarist/songwriter as well as a very gifted singer, is in excellent form throughout the album with his rich tenor voice. The musical arrangements enhance the natural beauty of these songs, too. The quality of the sound is excellent.

The album begins with the terrific title track; and Glen never sounded better! The guitar work does wonders for this ballad and Glen never lets go of a single superfluous note, either--I'm very impressed. "Catch the Wind," a song by Bob Dylan, gets a most sensitive treatment from Glen Campbell who sings this song wonderfully. There's yet another gem in Glen's treatment of "It's Over;" and "Bowling Green" has a dynamic style that makes me want to listen to it over and over again.

"Just Another Man" again has Glen performing brilliantly; the music fits in perfectly with his vocals. His sophisticated phrasing makes this ballad special and I think you'll like this if you haven't heard it before. "You're My World" uses the strings to great advantage--and what a fine beat this has! Glen really opens up to show the incredible power of his voice and that's grand. In addition, "The World I Used to Know" features Glen in his natural element as a fine entertainer; the strings, guitar and more make this an excellent song that I won't forget anytime soon.

"Without Her" has Glen squarely in the spotlight on this Harry Nilsson tune--and that's quite all right by me! Glen sings a rather melancholy song flawlessly and it's all so well done that it ranks as a highlight of the album. "Mary in the Morning" shines brighter than silver and gold in Glen Campbell's capable hands; he sings straight from the heart and just one listen proves it! "Love Me As Though There Were No Tomorrow" is sublime to hear; and the album closes very well with Glen Campbell performing his cover of "Cryin'." "Cryin'" showcases Glen's ability to deliver a cover song with panache; and it leaves me wanting more!

Glen Campbell remains an exceptional multi-talented artist; and it's no wonder with albums like this one. This is a must-have for any Glen Campbell fan; and newcomers just discovering Glen would do well to add this to their collections."
