Sealed 1978 Original With Custom Hype Sticker. Barely Visible Embossed "Not For Sale" Promo Stamp On Rear Jacket. "If 1977's Southern Nights Was Scattered, Containing Too Many Incompatible Songwriters, Glen Campbell Solved That Problem With 1978's Basic, Relying Only On Michael Smotherman For Material. The Only Other Writer Given That Kind Of Showcase By Campbell Was Jimmy Webb While Smotherman Is Hardly On The Same Par With Webb — To Begin With, He's Not Nearly As Idiosyncratic Or Have As Personal A Viewpoint — He Is, Nevertheless, A Good, Sturdy Writer, Working Within The '70s Singer/Songwriter Tradition With A Fondness For Mellow, Catchy Soft Rock. If There Are No Classic Moments — As There Were Even On Southern Nights — Basic Makes Up For It Through Its Sheer Consistency, Since Campbell Always Had Trouble Delivering Records That Held Their Own From Start To Finish (Even His Classic '60s Records Could Be Uneven). Given Its Lack Of Big Hits, This Is Not One For The Casual Listener. But Most Serious Fans Will Likely Concede That Basic Is His Last Great Album." Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.
