    Between “Rhinestone Cowboy” and all those Jimmy Webb songs–like “Gentle On My Mind”–Glen Campbell must have had the most complex bunch of lyrics to remember and memorize of any country singer. All the more amazing that he did a full concert tour a few years ago after he was struck with Alzheimer’s disease! (Yeah, I know he abridged some of the lyrics in concert, but it was still incredible.)

    Except “Gentle On My Mind” wasn’t written by Jimmy Webb, but by John Hartford.

    That’s right. You got me there!

    In any case, though, GC had an enormous variety of songs throughout his career that encompassed so many styles, including (but not limited to) country. And one can’t forget his being part of the famed Wrecking Crew, or that he subbed for Brian Wilson in the Beach Boys in late 1964/early 1965.
