Glen Campbell's Ovation Bluebird 6 String Guitar

T he Ovation Bluebird guitars were made exclusively for Glen, by Ovation, around the middle to late 70's. There were a total of about eight instruments in all. It is generally thought that five were 6-strings and the rest were 12-strings. The fact that Ovation would design a guitar model for the ex...

Re: Need a Specific Glen Campbell "True Grit" Picture

Well, Darn. I was hoping it would be in one of those groups. I am pretty sure that pic is from the ones taken for the Wichita Lineman album. 5.jpg Either Glen had one set of pictures clothes in the 60's...lol...or Capitol maximized a photo shoot day with Glen. I am presuming that this studio work wa...

Re: Two Different "Ghost on the Canvas" Covers

I was just curious...as at some point when Ghost was released, Ovation re-issued Glen's 1627 as a Limited Edition in celebration of Glen and the release.

Two Different "Ghost on the Canvas" Covers

While researching something else...I noticed what seems to be two different album covers for Ghost! One appears to have an Ovation, the other...possibly a Gibson.

From 1964 to 1968—in between recording sessions with the Wrecking Crew, touring with the Beach Boys, and recording his own albums—Glen Campbell was recruited to record songs for the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley.
