DIY isn't solely the province of musical youth. The venerable Pat Boone has started Gold Label as a haven for veteran pop stars in whom the majors long ago lost interest. One of the first to sign up: Glen Campbell, a pop-country superstar of the '60s and '70s whose last Top 10 country hit, "She's Gone, Gone, Gone," came more than a decade ago.
This time around, Campbell focuses on heart songs, with a standards repertoire that spans the late '40s and early '50s ("Ebb Tide," "Since I Fell for You," "It's All in the Game"), the '60s ("You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" and a pair of Bacharach/David classics, "Make It Easy On Yourself" and "Only Love Can Break a Heart") and, perhaps regrettably, the early '70s (lugubrious readings of Jim Croce's "Time in a Bottle" and Don McLean's "And I Love You So").
