OK...one more. The thing that struck me when I first heard Glen sing live years ago was that he had such a rich lower register, as this song demonstrates -- "What A Friend We Have In Jesus." He is known for hitting those high notes but seldom utilized his deeper voice. But it was beautiful and he also sang more softly..in the style of Jim Reeves! See this compelling performance with an orchestra backing him -- and his fabulous guitar playing. He started out as a studio musician backing many stars on their hit records, before the music biz realized the guy could SING. I wish he would have recorded more material that showed off his baritone notes.
