Glen Campbell

This Glen Campbell album, Ghost on the Canvas, which may or may not be his final one, has had me thinking for a month now.  Would people care about it if it wasn't for Campbell's Alzheimer's announcement?  It's a good album, kept from being great by questionable production decisions (strings, strings, strings).  Campbell sounds good, still plays good and his people picked good songs.
Yet I still wonder if anyone would notice it existed without his illness.  His last album of covers came and went, and got good reviews.  But it sold poorly.
I'm just throwing this out there, that's all.
