Glen Campbell ~ "Highwayman" (Jimmy Webb) LIVE! 1980 L.A. Forum
Sad to hear of the death of Glen Campbell, one of the great contemporary ballad singers. I remember buying an eight track cassette of his back in the early seventies or so, and while the sound from those things was something else, they had a tendency to jam and it did somewhere on the back road from Rathfeigh to Duleek in the middle of, "Dreams of an Everyday Housewife" or maybe it was, "Gentle on my Mind". Anyway he was a fine singer and guitar player and will be missed and to borrow a line from another song, "Another piece of America's gone!" With thanks to youtube and Diamond's In The Rough who posted.
