Written in 1968 by Jimmy Webb, 'Wichita Lineman' is the first philosophical country song: a heartbreaking torch ballad still celebrated for its mercurial songwriting genius fifty years later. It was recorded by Glen Campbell with a legendary group of musicians known as 'the Wrecking Crew', and something about the song's enigmatic mood seemed to capture the tensions in America at a moment of crisis. Mixing close-listening, interviews and travelogue, the legendary editor of GQ magazine, Dylan Jones explores the legacy of a record that has entertained and haunted millions for over half a century.
