The great “lost” Glen Campbell album! ‘Sings For The King’ brings together 18 previously unreleased songs that Glen Campbell and the studio band the Wrecking Crew recorded for Elvis Presley between 1965 and 1967. Before he became a global superstar in his own right, Campbell was known as one of the best session musicians in the business, and his extraordinary pitch made him the perfect fit for these tracks for The King.

Opening with the Glen & Elvis duet We Call On Him, this fascinating album links two of popular music’s most iconic figures of all time.

Campbell Glen : 
Sings For The King (CD)

Kuvaus

Glen Campbell Sings for The King arrives on November 16, premiering never-before-released recordings made by Campbell for his friend Presley.  It will be released on CD, & LIMITED EDITION VINYL LP.


Between 1964 and 1968, Glen was engaged by the songwriting team of Ben Weisman and Sid Wayne to record fully-produced studio versions of songs intended for Elvis.  The King recorded more songs by Weisman than any other songwriter, cutting 57 of the composer’s tunes.  Glen was asked to match Elvis’ pitch and sound on these luxury demos; naturally, he also played guitar on the sessions.


Twelve of the 18 tracks on Glen Campbell Sings for The King were picked up and recorded by Elvis, including the title songs from his movies such as Spinout, Clambake, and Easy Come, Easy Go, the latter of which is streaming now.  It’s also available as an “instant grat” download to purchasers of the digital version of the album.


Presley himself appears on the album with the opening track, a posthumous duet on “We Call On Him.”  The gospel song is joined by country numbers, ballads, and rock-and-roll.  (One of the tracks never recorded by Elvis, “Love on the Rocks,”  left Neil Diamond free to make the title his own years later!)   The two artists first met as early as 1956.  Author Alan Light writes in the liner notes, “With their genre-bending musical exploration and rural Southern roots, it’s no surprise that Glen Campbell and Elvis Presley formed something of a mutual admiration society.”  Capitol also quotes Campbell:  “Elvis and I were brought up the same humble way, picking cotton and looking at the north end of a south-bound mule. I saw him in the rough [at an early concert]…He was so electrifying.”  As Campbell ascended to the ranks of Los Angeles’ top session guitarists, he played on one memorable Elvis track: “Viva Las Vegas.”


Glen and Elvis remained friends throughout their lifetimes, and Campbell even continued to record for Weisman and Wayne after his breakthrough to superstardom in 1967.  This tribute to the remarkable talents of both artists arrives on November 16 from Capitol/UMe.
