Glen Campbell, who spent his life building a sturdy bridge between country and pop, was above all a voice. A voice as iconic as those of Frank Sinatra, Elvis or Ella Fitzgerald. In 1975 when Rhinestone Cowboy was released, the well-coiffed Arkansas-born singer who also hosted a weekly talk show on CBS was showered with golden records and Grammy Awards. This 13th album, which begins with the single of the same name, was one of his most popular records. Rhinestones Cowboy launched Campbell right back up to the top of the charts, after he deserted them for a while at the beginning of the ‘70s. Thanks to the Dennis Lambert-Brian Potter producing duo, who wrote the first four songs on the album, Glen Campbell tapped into all his know-how and embodied a country boy who had come to town to do the impossible, perfectly crooning down the mic without ever turning his songs into schmaltzy tear-jerkers. Here, he covers hits by the likes of Smokey Robinson (My Girl), Randy Newman (Marie) and Barry Mann (We’re Over) while never copying their styles. It was in this slightly kitschy territory, situated somewhere between country, pop, folk and soft rock, that Campbell ruled supreme.  – Marc Zisman
