Originally released in July of 1975, Glen Campbell's Rhinestone Cowboy was the music legend's first No. 1 hit on Billboard's Country Albums chart, vaulting the already quite famous master guitarist and singer to household name superstar status. On March 31, ahead of Campbell's 79th birthday on April 22, Capitol Nashville/UMe will remaster and reissue this classic album on 180-gram vinyl. This 40th anniversary reissue will come complete with a special, embossed LP jacket. Many of Rhinestone Cowboy's lyrical themes reflected Campbell's own life at the time, both personally and professionally. The album's centerpiece title track and its second single, 'Country Boy (You Got Your Feet In L.A.)' spoke to and through Campbell with messages of sacrifice and concession required to maintain a career in entertainment's fast lane, which had brought him from Arkansas to Los Angeles in the 1960s.

Answer: How about a 2015 reissue on CD that has been carefully remastered and includes five (5!) bonus tracks, one being a previously unreleased song!
This reissued and expanded album has been released as a 40th Anniversary Edition just prior to Glen Campbell's 79th birthday on April 22, 2015. One of the bonus tracks, "Quits", is a never-before-released song that was recorded during the original Rhinestone Cowboy studio sessions. Written by Danny O'Keefe, it is a heartbreaking song masterfully sung by the one and only Glen Campbell at a major pinnacle in his career. Joe Marchese (The Second Disc) describes "Quits" as: "A haunting elegy to a romance, it may have been too downbeat for the original album, but makes for a beautiful discovery here." Indeed, it is a fantastic discovery for long-time Glen Campbell fans as well as new listeners.
A second bonus track, "Record Collector's Dream," written by the great Billy Graham had originally only been released on the b-side of the Campbell classic, "Country Boy (You Got Your Feet in L.A.)". "Record Collector's Dream" has never been available for purchase digitally or on CD in North America. If you love records, real vinyl records, you'll love this song with its fun play-on-words lyrics. If you are a fan of Glen Campbell's, you already know...he IS a record collector's dream.Read more ›
