GHOST ON THE CANVAS
the final album from country legend is impressively gutsy, unbelievably heartfelt & rich in musical accompaniment. campbell’s 60 year career has been a magnificent success, selling millions of records, recording with the beach boys, winning numerous awards…he’s even had his own tv show. with his final album, he & producer julian raymond (former vice president of capitol records), have made a fantastic swansong with a little help from paul westerberg, robert pollard, billy corgan, jakob dylan, brian setzer & teddy thompson. having been diagnosed with early stages of alzheimer’s, this album finds a man taking stock of a life overstocked with all manner of experience – full of simple love & gratitude where the drama is all natural & the meaning is palpable in every note. campbell hits a serene reflective note, singing & interpreting with naked humility - a fitting epilogue to a career that’s dazzled like the brightest rhinestones on any man’s jacket.
