It doesn't really matter if Glen Campbell was Jimmy Webb's best interpreter or if Webb gave Campbell his best songs - in other words, it doesn't matter who helped the other more - because it doesn't change the essential fact that the duo fit each other so naturally. These songs provided the background for Reunion, the 1974 album where Campbell and Webb reunited for a set of Webb songs. Well, that's not exactly accurate, since Webb never produced or arranged the hits Campbell had in the '60s, and the record isn't entirely written by Webb, since it features Susan Webb's "About the Ocean" and Lowell George's "Roll Um Easy" (here retitled "Roll Me Easy").

On Reunion, Glen Campbell reunited with Jimmy Webb to record an album of the writer’s songs that represented the musical marriage between these two talents. Three of the songs Jimmy had recorded for his own solo album, Land End that he’d released in June 1974. The three are among the high points on the record, ‘Just This One Time’, ‘Ocean In Her Eyes and ‘It’s A Sin’. In particular, ‘Just This One Time’ suits Campbell’s style perfectly and when coupled with Webb’s typically flamboyant, yet still subtle, string arrangements it proves very affecting. The other really strong songs on the record are ‘You Might As Well Smile,’ a trademark conversational Webb special that has a killer chorus as a bonus.
Glen Campbell wasn't selling as well as he previously had in the early 70's when he released this album in '74. It does feel like some of the sparkle of 'Galveston', 'Wichita lineman' and he early albums had gone. I also don't think Jimmy Bowen was a good producer for Glen between 1972-1974. I originall purchased this album, which features the songs of one of the greatest singer-songwriters shortly after my wife and I got married way back in 1975. I still own it and have the pleasure of playing it on a super valve-powered system using a cutting edge turn-table. Does the CD sound as good as the vinyl album?
