Perhaps Stuart Sutcliffe's influence was more in the fashion line, no less important at the time.

Also, for singers/songwriters that bring a lump to one's throat, a lot of Ray Davies does it for me.

Epstein, their first manager, got the grease out of their hair and the leather jackets off their backs, made them suit-and-tie wearing mop tops and WABANG, Beatlemania. That earns Brian 5th Beatle status.

Love this Brian meets Bert arrangement!

Guess I'm Dumb was a real mystery for me as a kid, first reading about glen's BB connection and it really wasn't an easy song to find in the mid 70s, finally heard it in college

Glenn was inspired to write 'Turn around look at me' by a flasher in the park.

Glen's song to his cat. I love it.

Jeez - I was on vacation last week and totally missed that Glen Campbell died. Thanks for the tribute, Joe.
Avatar Mon. 8/14/17 11:33am βrian:

I wonder how this cover was received at that time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/14/17 11:33am Mike East:

PS - I came back from vacation to find my swag waiting for me....thanks Joe and WFMU! I was even surprised that I won an Allah-la's CD which I didn't know about. Thanks to whatever DJ I won it from!!!
  Mon. 8/14/17 11:33am Dennis Diken:

You wanna' cry, you say? Check out Glen's "Ghost On The Canvas", his last CD. I love it but have to "budget" listening to it.
Avatar Mon. 8/14/17 11:35am Joe McG:

@Itzall: That's a killer diller. @Dennis: Hey Dennis, thanks for tuning in! @Mike East: Congrats, glad you got your stuff!

Itzall, "Adios" is Glen's final release.

@Joe, ditto what Mike said. My swag arrived and I'm very happy.
Avatar Mon. 8/14/17 11:38am Joe McG:

@Uncle Michael: Great news! Scott, Michele, and the volunteers have been working hard to get the swag out the door.

@Sem, from my pal: "Yeah. I even have a picture of that lying around. Jance, of course, had the patch on the wrong eye."

Welcome back, Joe! We're late this morning - didn't tune in until the Dionne Warwick (great record!) - but loving it. Wonderful Glen Campbell tribute, too.
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/14/17 11:51am Maggie B.:

I am so loving this lovely tribute but I also loved the bagpipes at 45rpm, Joe.

A fine set, Joe. Timeless voice, thanks so much.
