In the late ’60s, Glen Campbell had the world on a string—or better yet, strings. As a hotshot session guitarist, he worked with artists ranging from Frank Sinatra to Merle Haggard, and did a stint with the Beach Boys, replacing Brian Wilson on tour dates. “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “Wichita Lineman” made Glen a star. America witnessed the full range of his talent in early 1969 when The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour joined the CBS prime-time lineup. Glen Campbell Good Times Again collects the show’s greatest moments, with the genial host reminiscing about his famous guest artists. You’ll take a surreal truck ride with Glen and Roger “King of the Road” Miller, catch Ray Charles at “Crying Time,” and wonder why Tom Smothers is astride the fattest “hoss” this side of Botswana. Good times, indeed.
