defy anyone to come away from this biography of the first country–pop crossover star not humming. Wichita Lineman does it for me every time. There are cracking titbits — songwriter Jimmy Webb revealing he’d only half-finished the version of Wichita that got recorded — supplied by a wealth of talking heads, plus a wonderful summation of the whole ethos of country: “If you can’t hug a fat woman, don’t go into country music.” It’s followed by a 1977 live concert, An Evening with Glen Campbell.


An insight into the life of country music star Glen Campbell, documenting his remarkable journey from an impoverished childhood to worldwide fame and success as a guitarist and singer with records including Wichita Lineman and Rhinestone Cowboy. Featuring contributions by family, friends and colleagues including Jimmy Webb, Micky Dolenz and Bob Harris.
