Didn't care much for him (although I did buy WICHITA LINEMAN back in the day)...

member of the famous 'wrecking crew' & probably played on thousands of hit songs over the 70's....watched a fantastic doco on him during his last concert tour while suffering Alzheimers...very sad , but what a trooper for continuing to perform!

RIP Glen Campbell

I'm sure I have a Reggae version of one or two of his songs, but can't bring them to mind, except for Dennis Brown doing WICHITA LINEMAN:

...which isn't Reggae.

Not entirely unexpected, but very sad.

RIP Glen

RIP Glen. Quite a fan, although I'd read here and there that his politics were a bit dodgy.

RIP. Not much of a fan, but I do like a few of his tunes, that were done, Reggae style, or the stuff from the early '60's.

First time of hearing D Brown's non reggae version of 'WL'

A comment from the Dennis Brown ytube link:
"Great cover of a great song"

I totally agree with that comment.

The very first time i heard of Glen Campbell was via my Dad's copy of Glen Campbell's Twenty Golden Greats lp on Capitol records.

I do remember liking the songs i heard on that album.

He was also a prolific session guitarist, playing on the likes of 'Daydream Believer' and 'Strangers In The Night'. There may even be a comprehensive list out there somewhere.
