Is it just me or . . .

So I’m listening to the “Meet Glen Campbell” CD (amazingly successful project, in my opinion) and wonder why the vocal track on the first song is so drowned out by the production β€” his vocal presence on other songs is right up front, which is the way I like it.

Enough quibbling . . . Here’s his cover of Tom Petty’s “Walls” β€” which I can’t stop listening to. It hits me hard, like “Wichita.”

So who else is annoyed (or delighted) by overbearing production levels on projects that feature great vocalists?
