Glen Campbell's 'Rhinestone Cowboy' Getting Anniversary Reissue

. (Radio.com) You know the song, and whether you admit it in public or not, you love the song. Yes, we're talking about Glen Campbell's "Rhinestone Cowboy." A No. 1 smash for Campbell in 1975, the song became the title track on his 1975 album. Now on the 40th anniversary of its release, Rhinestone Cowboy is being reissued in a new, deluxe version. The new version will be released March 31 and is available for preorder now.

The 10-song album also includes the Randy Newman song "Marie," a cover of Smokey Robinson's "My Girl" and the bright, catchy "Country Boy (You Got Your Feet in L.A.)." The latter became a hit for Campbell in 1976, reaching No. 3 on the Billboard country chart.

The new Rhinestone Cowboy (40th Anniversary Edition) also features five bonus tracks. These include the previously unreleased track 'Quits," recorded by Campbell in March 1975 during the album's studio sessions; the song 'Record Collector's Dream," which was the 'Rhinestone Cowboy" single's B-side; 'Coming Home," a studio version that had previously only been released as a single in Japan; and remixes of 'Country Boy (You Got Your Feet In LA)" and 'Rhinestone Cowboy" (both of which were previously released on Campbell's Greatest Hits collection).
