Glen Campbell, ‘See You There’

“See You There” comprises new versions of seven Glen Campbell classics, fleshed out by a handful of tracks from the sessions for his last record, “Ghost on the Canvas.” Campbell laid down new vocals on his old hits during the “Ghost” sessions; his label owner subsequently added instrumentation. The results in no way surpass those towering originals — how could they, when songs such as “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston” are towering peaks on the map of popular music? These new takes do offer some worthy alternative perspectives: “Hey Little One” is given a slower, almost stately pace, “Gentle on My Mind” a rawer sound; “Galveston” comes in stripped-down, resonating form, and gains a reflective element courtesy of touches of accordion. Most of all, these rereadings are informed by what that famous voice — weathered, but still strong — has become. When it was released, “Ghost” was advertised as the end of Glen Campbell’s long recording career, and it remains a fitting coda; call “See You There” a poignant postscript. (Out Tuesday)

ESSENTIAL “Galveston”
