Glen Campbell: Sings For The King (CD)

(Capitol) 18 tracks (41:58) featuring a duet with Elvis Presley

The CD features 18 recently unearthed and unreleased tracks from the recordings that Campbell made between 1964 and 1968 for Elvis Presley. The pair's friendship stretched across three decades, from their first meeting during Elvis' rise to fame to the days when both were adored worldwide.

Initially intended for Elvis' ears only, these recordings were fully fleshed out studio versions of songs written by the team of Ben Weisman and Sid Wayne; Weisman is noted as the composer with more songs recorded by Elvis Presley than any other, with a total of 57. They also included notable sides such as 'Got A Lot Of Livin' To Do' and 'Rock-A-Hula Baby'.

Glen Campbell was asked to bring his perfect pitch and ability to match Presley's vocal pitch and style, so that the songs could be presented to 'The King' for his recording consideration. Glen also brings his unrivalled guitar virtuosity to the material.

Twelve of the 18 tracks on the album were indeed subsequently recorded by Elvis, including the title songs from his movie vehicles such as 'Spinout', 'Clambake' and 'Easy Come, Easy Go'.

Glen Campbell

American singer who became famous through film music. Born on 22.4.1939 in Delight (Arkansas) as the seventh son of a farming family. Already in his parents' house music was played all the time. The first money Glen Campbell earned as a cotton picker.

In 1962 Glen Campbell went to Hollywood and got a job as a studio musician, where he accompanied Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin. In 1967 he had his first great successes with "By the Time I get to Phoenix' and "Gentle on my mind'. For these world hits in country sound he also received the highest award of the American music business, the Grammy. His music to the films "True Grit' and "Norwood' underlined his reputation as one of America's best young composers and musicians. "Galveston', "Wichita Lineman' and "Where's the Playground Susie' were the songs that made him famous in Germany in 1969. Then he retired to his villa in Laurel Canyon and it became quieter around him. In 1975, however, he made a more than brilliant comeback with "Rhinestone Cowboy'.
