In 1965, Glen Campbell was part of the infamous "Wrecking Crew," recording sessions for the era's biggest pop songs, touring with the Beach Boys, and recording his own albums. He was signed to Capitol Records and only two years away from his breakthrough single, "Gentle On My Mind." By night, Campbell was cutting full studio-quality demos for Ben Weisman, the legendary songwriter who wrote 57 songs that were recorded by Elvis Presley - the most Elvis recorded by one songwriter. Campbell had the uncanny knack to sing in the same key as Elvis, and so between 1965-1967 he recorded numerous Weisman songs to send to Elvis. 18 of these previously unreleased recordings have been recovered and restored, and will be released together on a new collection, Sings For The King. Elvis went on to record 12 of the 18 songs himself, but we are now able to hear Campbell's versions for the first time ever. The collection highlights Campbell's incredible vocal range and guitar skills, and also draws focus to Weisman's understanding of all the styles of music Elvis could perform.
