And this in only 17 DAYS after posting 4 short samples of his songs on MySpace.com.

Family Album is a collection of original songs written and performed by John George Campbell about family members, relationships, and events that have influenced his life. “Grandad’s Branding Iron” is about family pride and tradition, followed by “Lovers Lullaby”, and "Shadows in the Night", which are about John's pioneering Oklahoma grandparents love and romance. Songs about his parents include “Mama” and “Daddy Dear”. John changes pace with the uptempo western swing piece "Should've Spent More Time in Oklahoma" and the Son's of the Pioneers styled "Remington, Russell, and All", John's tribute to the beautiful and dramatic works of the great Western painters Fredric Remington, Charles Russell, and others. He includes songs of struggle and determination "God Bless the Working Man" and the breakup of a loved one's marriage in “Through the Heartache and the Tears” and then moves onto happier songs about pets “Eight Dogs and Two Kitty Cats”, babies “Babies on Parade”, and quirky family trips "Next to Highway Number 10". John closes Family Album with a song of love and commitment “Choices”, and the humourous self-deprecating rocker "Middle Aged Man".

Players contributing their talents to Family Album included the late great Jerry Swallow on guitar and bass, Bob Helm on fiddle, Buddy Merrill on pedal steel, Larry David on keyboards and harp, and Rob Renderer on keyboards and organ.

John George Campbell has been singing most of his life, and professionally since the 1980’s. He's sung on film soundtracks, televisions shows, numerous concert venues, fairs and festivals, musical Theater, and cruise ships. John left the road to raise a family, and in the process started writing the songs on Family Album. Unfortunately, John became ill after the CD was produced and completed, so this FAMILY ALBUM CD was never released until May of 2006. But the individual songs "Daddy Dear", and "Through the Heartache and the Tears" were featured on the Dr.James Dobson's Focus on the Family show, and the Dr Laura's radio talk show, and the children's songs "Eight Dogs and Two Kitty Cats", "Babies on Parade", and "Next to Highway Number 10" have been played on Children's radio stations in various areas. "Grandad's Branding Iron" and "Choices" have also recieved some nice attention. Now, thanks to CDBaby, good folks like yourself can finally give John George Campbell's FAMILY ALBUM a listen, and if you like what you hear, buy the CD, or MP3s of your favorite songs on the CD.
