Eddy Arnold’s The Glory of Love is one of a few of his late RCA albums on which every song sounds like either Glen Campbell or Bobby Goldsboro. “Heaven Below” is melodically similar to Campbell’s “Witchita Lineman,” and “Then She’s a Lover” (a hit for Roy Clark) is a slice-of-life song like Goldsboro’s “The Straight Life,” or “Honey” without the morbid ending. Veteran arranger Bill Walker’s contributions are in keeping with the times and are most interesting on the hit “But for Love” with its echoey guitar leads. “Please Don’t Go” was Arnold’s last Top Ten hit for over a decade, and in the context of the album doesn’t particularly stand out. Arnold was entering a commercial as well as creative dry spell at this point, and his best cuts are better-heard on collections. ~ Greg Adams
