Glen Campbell not only had an enormous number of hit singles, he was also a staple of pop culture, appearing in films and hosting a TV show during the late '60s and early '70s. Before that, he was a respected studio musician and performer in search of a hit in the early '60s, cutting great singles that nobody heard. All this makes his career difficult to compile, even on a double-disc set with 40 songs, so it shouldn't be a huge surprise that Razor & Tie's 1997 compilation The Glen Campbell Collection (1962-1989), for all its attributes, is heavily flawed. Its biggest problem is its scope; by extending its reach to the end of the '80s, when Campbell was still having hits out of sheer inertia and was far past his peak, the listenability of the second disc nosedives about halfway through.

Contains 13 original songs written and performed by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, all of which are performed in the film.

The additional songs were two previously unreleased Van Morrison covers: Hansard's "And the Healing Has Begun", and Hansard and Irglová's "Into the Mystic".

After recently becoming a fan of The Band, I found this album and decided to give it a listen. I had no idea what Watkins Glen was, and i hadn't heard many of the songs that were on this album. After taking the album home I read the cd booklet and found that Watkins Glen was a concert organized by Bill Graham which included The Allman Brothers Band, The Band, and the Grateful Dead.
