Glen Campbell / Jimmy Webb – Wichita Lineman

Prolific songwriter Jimmy Webb wrote the material behind Glen Campbell’s most successful songs including Wichita Lineman, By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Galveston, and Where’s the Playground, Susie?

This song is easily my favorite, although a lot of that has to do with a version recorded by the Daly Wilson Big Band as part of a Jimmy Webb Medley. But here we revert to the sweet French horn sounds of the original recording, transcribed for flugelhorn and trombone.

After Glen Campbell’s passing, I had the opportunity to record this twice in quick succession. Both times with some great musicians.
