Glen Campbell V's Nick Cave

Nick Cave

Glen Campbell was a studio guitarist in the early 1960's who went on to become the Rhinestone Cowboy. Before his solo career took off, he even toured with The Beach Boys in 1964-65 when Brian Wilson freaked out and quit touring.

Nick Cave surely needs no introduction. He has released a huge number of cover versions, including the "Kicking Against The Pricks" album which was full of covers, including his version of this Jimmy Webb classic track.

Thanks old boy .. Haven't heard this for many a moon. Forgotton just how impossibly good it is. (Like pushing a marshmallow in a money box). How lucky are those of you bloggers hearing it for the first time ever.

it's good to see that the wife is still opening her mp3 door to a quicky every now and again
