Re: Country Boy Guitar by Rock 'n' Roll Relics

Was he maybe playing it (The Country Boy relic, that is)in the S Dakota Symphony special? This looks a little too dark, and somewhat cleaner than the relic, but it does seem to have the right hardware... Perhaps it is yet another "Strat"-like one.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=14&v=...

Re: Glen Campbell's Adamas II, Model 1685 12 String

I guess we'll need another image.. Off to look!! Y'know something? I am beginning to wonder if there are two Adamas in those pictures. One with checked binding and one with dark binding. The binding on the guitar with Autry doesn't quite square with the shot of Glen playing the inscribed Adamas, yet...

Glen and a Datsun 240Z(?)

Those sure like they were shot for print ads. Was Datsun a sponsor of the Goodtime Hour in 71-72? Near as I can tell, both cars are 71 or 72 models. Add in the golfers and the outfit Campbell's dressed in and you have definite lifestyle statement made here. Still, wonderful to see, as I lusted after...

Re: Glen Campbell's Adamas II, Model 1685 12 String

Hmm- looks like "Happiness"?

And perhaps my eyes are deceiving me, but I think I see the same scrawl in the image with Gene Autry. However, that's a pretty grainy photo, so no way to confirm it.

Makes me wonder who put it there, though.

Re: Ashley sings "Pancho and Lefty" and talks about her dad

The song suits her voice surprising well. One of her better efforts, IMHO.

Re: The Hitching Post in Albuquerque, NM Where Glen Campbell Played

This may be a bit of a de-rail,, but as it involves Billie-Jean, it might also be the place where someone can clearup a possibly apocryphal story that has bothered me for several years. I've heard it said that, many years after Albequerque, after the Goodtime Hour was done and dusted, and "Rhineston...

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

An '81 British TV show of Glen, with the tag ending.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zngrnpy2Wwo

The air-date is likely traceable by some.

Then, in May '81 at West Point... 6:35 into the clip.

Gettin' closer!

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

Wups! Looks like I misread it... Here's the opening of the 77 show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d720RIIePbY&list=PLv_Z-b9pO4-igmuGdsOBxV5bSyIsfnACg And nope- the tagline is NOT there, all of which throws my previous calculations utterly off. Jay, you can have your money back.. and the rest of th...

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

Ok, so to re-cap a little: "Rhinestone Cowboy" came out in May of '75 and by 77 Glen was adding "and Cow gir-r-r-rls" to the end of the song, per the Royal Festival Hall concert.. The issue date of the Live album (November '77) isn't a lot of help, because it really does not equate to the date(s) of...

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

He was doing both in the PBS concert (with the South Dakota Symphony), if memory serves. That was in 2001.

So we can see him use those "extras" at least that far back.
