1968 - Wichita Lineman

 Here's another sweet one from 1968. Glen Campbell's recording reached number 3 on the US Pop Chart, and it stayed in the Top 100 for a total of 15 weeks. It also made Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" in 2010. I rushed to record this on April 22, 2021, when I learned that would have been Glen Campbell's 85th birthday.


As I note in the introduction, I have at least one other Jimmy Webb song coming up - in 1987. But the list is fluid, and your suggestions may push another Webb classic onto the list. Please share your memories and favorites.
