The beat goes on: Philip Glass and Patti Smith pay tribute to poet Allen Ginsberg

Album review: Glen Campbell, See You There (Surfdog)

Comprising smartened-up leftovers from what was supposed to Campbell's final album, 2011's Ghost on the Canvas, this collection of re-recorded hits and newer material lacks both that album's imaginative approach and its understated nobility.
