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. There's no significant depletion in his delivery of a wistful “Wichita Lineman”, but “Galveston” lacks the bottomless yearning of the original. The back-to-back sequencing of “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “There's No Me...Without You” works well. The best of the newer material is Jimmy Webb and John Denver's “Postcard from Paris”.

Porn in the UK: Steve Coogan and Tamsin Egerton in Michael Winterbottom’s affectionate but evasive ‘The Look of Love’

Film review: The Look of Love (18)

Michael Winterbottom's biopic of Soho porn and property baron Paul Raymond (Steve Coogan) is a Janus-faced affair. On the one hand, it's a bit of a romp.
