Three Glen Campbell Classic Albums Returning to Vinyl

VVN Music

Capitol Nashville and UMe have announced that three classic Glen Campbell albums will return to vinyl on March 24.

Campbell released five albums on Capitol without finding a hit until mid-1967 with the album Gentle On My Mind. The title track, which has gone on to become a classic, was not that big a hit when first released, only getting to number 30 on the Country Singles and 62 on the Hot 100 but its use on Campbell's Goodtime Hour television series put it in the forefront of people's minds. Nevertheless, the Gentle on My Mind album went to number 5 on the Billboard 200 and number 1 on the Country Albums, establishing Campbell as a new star.

Glen was a workhorse in the studio, releasing three albums in 1967 and five in 1968, the last of which became one of his very biggest. Wichita Lineman topped both the pop and country charts with the albums title song going to number 1 on the Country and Adult Contemporary charts and number 3 on the Hot 100. Also on the album was the single Dreams of the Everyday Housewife with lyrics that are a bit dated today; however, it went to 3 on the Country, 6 on the AC and 32 on the Hot 100 charts.

Campbell's next album, Galveston, kept him at the top of the Country Albums and went to 2 on the Billboard 200. Propelled by his popular TV show, it included two more hits, Galveston (1969 / #4 Pop / #1 Country / #1 AC) and Where's the Playground Susie (#26 Pop / #28 Country / #10 AC).
