Label: Capitol Nashville
Although his pristine brand of country was tailor-made for radio airplay, Glen Campbell's By the Time I Get to Phoenix offers more than just the smash hit of its title track. Campbell's version of "Tomorrow Never Comes" is surprisingly gritty and soulful, while "Cold December (In Your Heart)," "Bad Seed" and "Back in the Race" shuffle along with a skiffle beat and twangy guitars - not too unlike some of Buddy Holly's tamer material. Mercifully, the string section on those tracks is kept to a minimum. Though he showcases a variety of styles, the constant is how supple Campbell's voice is, bending around notes ("Hey Little One") that defy gravity.
