Hawaiian singer Don Ho recorded the Jimmy Webb song "Galveston" as a 1967 single, having been offered the song by Webb's publisher Johnny Rivers. Glen Campbell had visited the Texas Gulf coast town of Galveston when he was a teenaged musician performing in a band. "Galveston" would continue Campbell's string of hits covering Webb's songs including "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" and the million-selling "Wichita Lineman." Produced by Al DeLory, "Galveston" went to number four pop, number one country for three weeks, and number one adult contemporary for six weeks in the spring of 1969. The Galveston album went platinum, peaking at number two pop.
