Glen Campbell's Recording of Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman" Inducted Into National Recording Registry Of The Library of Congress.
"Glen Campbell's recording of Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman," with its yearning refrain of "I need you more than want you and I want you for all time," has been inducted into the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress, ensuring that, like the lonesome lover's sentiment in the timeless song, it will live on until the end of time.
The honor was announced today by Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden who inducted the recording along with two dozen others in the 2019 class of audio treasures worthy of preservation because of their cultural, historic and aesthetic importance to the nation's recorded sound heritage...."
On Jimmy Webb's new CD, SlipCover (May 17, S Curve Records) Webb, using his own piano arrangements, plays some of his favorite songs of his generation showing off the complex melodies that will make you hear these musicians "more as composers, than rock stars and songwriters."
