The Wrecking Crew Showcases The Best Of 1960s Session Musicians


Brian Wilson Glen Campbell George Harrison

In the words of Annie Lennox and Aretha Franklin "behind every great man is a great woman", but in this case it's more likely that behind the song there's a great combination of great, unrecognised musicians too.

It is that concept that a new documentary The Wrecking Crew focuses on as it takes a look at the self-contained world of LA all-star session musicians that were behind each Grammy-award winning "Record of the Year" hit for six consecutive years during the 1960s - 1970s.

Is 'See You There' Glen Campbell's 'American IV: The Man Comes Around'?


Glen Campbell Johnny Cash

Glen Campbell has released his latest album See You There, which is likely to be his last given his ongoing battle with Alzheimer's Disease.

The legendary singer-songwriter recorded five of the twelve tracks during sessions for his 2011 album 'Ghost On The Canvas,' though the other seven tracks will all be familiar to fans. They include: 'Hey Little One,' 'Wichita Lineman,' 'Gentle On My Mind,' 'Galveston,' 'By The Time I Get To Phoenix,' 'True Grit,' and 'Rhinestone Cowboy.'

Interestingly, and to Campbell's credit, the versions are not simply remakes of the classic songs and gone are the strings that became a staple of the singer's Al De Lory-produced era. Instead, there's some steel guitar on the likes of 'Wichita Lineman' and new guitar work on 'Rhinestone Cowboy.'

True Grit Review


Excellent
A western classic. When a young girl's (Kim Darby) father is killed, she recruits old, one-eyed U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) and joins up with a Texas Ranger (musician Glen Campbell) to hunt him down and kill him. Darby is a spunky actress, and though she can't quite carry the emotional needs of the role, Wayne's Cogburn is one of the highlights of his career. Exciting and soul-searching, the film drags a bit in the middle, but if you're looking for the archetypal western, look no further.
