Recorded in 1994 at his own theater in Branson, Missouri (the subject of the wryly amusing anti-Nashville screed "Mansion in Branson"), this live set features Glen Campbell and an excellent band running through a sort of career retrospective. The emphasis is on his pop hits than on strictly country material, although "Kentucky Means Paradise" doesn't exactly protest the smell of cow manure, which is a good thing.
Campbell's voice has deepened a bit since his '70s heyday, but he's in otherwise fine form here and seems to be enjoying himself, particularly on a flashy cover of Mason Williams' "Classical Gas." There's also a nice duet with his daughter Debbie on the Everly Brothers' "Let it Be Me."
