Oh My God, that was HORRIBLE. I actually made it through, though. Interesting, thanks for posting.

Just way schmaltzy and over-produced, and Campbell gave himself license to change the words, too.

This makes me think of starting a "worst cover tunes" ever thread. This would be right at the top of the list.

I liked it. Glenn made it his own and didn't bother to redo it exactly as Jackson Brown recorded it. Good for him. Its also relevant given his advanced stage of dementia. Schmaltzy? One of his biggest hits was Rhinestone Cowboy, go back and listen to that and tell me its over-produced and schmaltzy.

I thought it was decent. Always liked that songs melody and phrasing.

Am a big GC fan but not crazy about this version. Didn't like the tempo. Some songs just seem better covered truer to original form.
