Song Of The Day – 1/13/11

Song Of The Day – “Ann” by Glen Campbell from the album “Wichita Lineman”

Glen Campbell cut his teeth as an in-demand Los Angeles session guitarist playing on countless hits by The Monkees, The Mamas & The Papas, Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.  He became a touring member of the Beach Boys in 1965 when Brian Wilson could not go on the road anymore, leaving in 1967 to continue his own solo career and to launch a variety show on TV.  Of course, we all know the myriad of hits he’s scored on his own…”Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “Gentle On My Mind,” “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” “Rhinestone Cowboy”…to name but a few. This 1968 album cut was written by country artist Billy Ed Wheeler, and while not a chart hit, is considered one of Campbell’s classics.
