If you grew up in the 60's and 70's and watched evening prime time television at all, there's high probablity the Glen Campbell show was in your life. In addition to the variety show, the often underrated musician had quite a pedigree, from recording with the Champs, sessions with the Beach Boys, picking with sideman Johnny Hartford, pioneering Ovation guitars and a 12-string guitar instrumental album, and some beautiful classic collaborations with songwriter Jimmy Webb, including the following song re-recorded a few years with the Stone Temple Pilots.
