I am sorry, I meant I played the Billy Mize and Don Quinton versions, to my knowledge Glen Campbell didn't record "Lights Of Albuqueruqe". And of course the Jim Glaser Version Of "Lights Of Albuquerque" is a different song, same Title.
A bit of trivia Jim Glaser had a good career with the Glaser brothers and as a solo artist...he co-wrote "Woman,Woman" for Gary Puckett and the Union Gap.
Speaking of Glen Campbell, I cleary remembering hearing his song about the lights of Albuquerque. It was in the mid 1960s that I heard his song.
I am trying to find out the title of his song about Albuquerque. It was definite not "The Lights of Albuquerque" which was sung by another singer much later. Can anyone help me find Glen Campbell's song about Albuququerque?
The other song was by Jim Glaser, and was, imho, much the better of the two.
It was considered a "bonus track" on Glaser's LP "Man in the Mirror," which was full of excellent songs like "(I Like It) When You're Not A Lady," "If I Could Only Dance With You," the title song "The Man in the Mirror" (different song and pre-Michael Jackson, obviously), and others. "Lights" became a local sensation and got quite a bit of airplay for a brief time. I was a disk jockey on KRZY AM at the time, so I knew my way around country music during the late sixties and early seventies.
Thanks, Mike, for the info.
Yes, I am familiar with Jim Glaser's "Lights of Albuquerque".
It's definitely a great song.
But I am still trying to find out the name of Glen Campbell's song about Albuquerque.
There definitely was a phrase "lights of Albuquerque" also in Glen Campbell's song.
I could be wrong. Do you know the name of Glen Campbell's song.
I check with Glen Campbell's discography and couldn't come up with any song about Albuquerque.
And it was definitely not the "Lights of Albuquerque" by Jim Glaser, which I heard many times.
