Glen Campbell Wichita Lineman Limited RSD 2016 Heavyweight Red 7 Inch Vinyl Single

Overview:
Commonly referred to as “the first existential country song”, Stuart Maconie has hailed ‘Wichita Lineman’ as “the greatest pop song ever composed”, its reputation further enhanced by its inclusion in Rolling Stone’s ‘500 Greatest Songs Of All Time’ poll. Written by Jimmy Webb and inspired by the image of a solitary lineman atop a telegraph pole, observed while driving through rural Oklahoma during sunset, this definitive version, released as a single in 1968, would go to Number 3 in the US chart and enter the top ten in the UK. In celebration of Campbell’s 80th birthday in April 2016, we’re reissuing it on red coloured 7” vinyl, using the original artwork from the ‘68 Spanish release.
