GLEN CAMPBELL SINGS FOR THE KING

November 16 marks the release of 18 Glen Campbell tracks originally recorded as demos for Elvis including several songs co-written by Sid Wayne (Holly Hill Music). Discovered locked away in a vault in the attic of Wayne's co-writer, Ben Weisman, a few of the demos actually were recorded by Elvis including "Easy Come Easy Go", "Spinout" and "Stay Away Joe". "Campbell and Presley met in 1956, when Campbell was living and performing in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Later, Campbell would become a member of the studio group the Wrecking Crew, playing on hundreds of sessions that included his one Presley session for the Viva Las Vegassoundtrack. By 1967, Campbell had broken out as a solo artist, releasing the hit albums Gentle on My Mind and By the Time I Get to Phoenix and launching an extended run of musical and television success. All told, he sold over 45 million albums and landed 80 songs on several different charts. In 2017, he died at age 81 due to complications from Alzheimer’s disease." (Rolling Stone, 10/10/2018).
