Hi MarySue,
I’m sorry I only have the GC performances as released on several dvds. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glen_Campbell_videography for more details. Pan people’s performance was not included on them.


I'm a carefree, range ridin', driftin' cowpoke...

A MILLION thanks to Erik the Dane (one of our members in Denmark) for sharing his updated list of Glen Campbell performing Jimmy Webb's tunes with Glen Campbell Forums!
(Some of Erik's formatting was lost when I copied and pasted his Word document text here. I will work on adding his formatting shortly.)
If you can help with any of the missing pieces, we would all be grateful!
Perhaps some or all of this information may be included in Jimmy Webb's upcoming book publication. Just a wish on my part!

Hello I'm MarySue.
I've been a G.C. fan all of my life! I've seen the Talk of the Town video on YouTube but I'm I didn't see the Pan's People dance portion. Is there any way anyone could send me a copy of the dance? I'd sure appreciate it.
Have a good one!

More information about the Elvis Presley Comeback Special '68 and Jimmy Webb's MacArthur Park:

Inside Elvis Presley’s Legendary 1968 Comeback Special
By Kory Grow
RollingStone
August 16, 2017
(Director Steve Binder and his producer, Bones Howe) wanted (the Comeback Special) to end with Elvis singing a current hit, possibly “MacArthur Park,” though Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker was still hoping for it to end with a Christmas song. It was an idea that they’d develop until almost the last minute.

They moved into the NBC studio on June 17th, rehearsing (Jerry Reed's) “Guitar Man,” and they began recording the choreographed “story” section of the special three days later with a strong selection of L.A. sidemen, including guitarist Mike Deasy and drummer Hal Blaine. It was also then that Binder decided they needed another song to end the show, leading him to beseech vocal arranger Earl Brown to write (overnight) what would become “If I Can Dream” ... as a replacement for Parker’s Christmas song.
SOURCE: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/musi ... al-192201/

Additionally: During the August 16th, 2018, 50th anniversary screening of the Elvis Comeback Special, Priscilla Presley and Steve Binder specifically addressed Colonel Parker's directive to include a Christmas song on the set list. They recalled that, in-person and in front of Binder, Parker told Elvis that a Christmas song must be / will be included. In reply, Elvis put his head down, not looking at Parker, and said, "yes, sir"....

According to Binder, shortly after Parker's directive, Elvis--using an expletive--privately told Binder that he did NOT want a Christmas song on the set list. Elvis made the final decision. No Christmas song landed on the set list, thereby (imo) allowing the Comeback Special to be dissociated for all time with a specific season or time of year, a small but significant aspect contributing to its year-round screenings.

Perhaps at that point, Binder (and possibly Elvis?) wanted to move forward with adding "MacArthur Park" as the ending song?

However, as Jimmy Webb fans now know, for Elvis to have performed "MacArthur Park", Col. Parker wanted ownership of the song's publishing rights. Webb turned down Parker's request/demand and, consequently, "MP" was not performed by Elvis on the special and Elvis never recorded/released it.

And yet...the King of Rock and Roll got his cake and ate it, too, when one considers his inclusion of a lyric from "MacArthur Park" DURING the Comeback Special (resulting in the MP / JW credit in the special's ending credits) AND, based on the release of the Comeback's Bloopers, Elvis also parodied abbreviated lyrics from "MacArthur Park" at least THREE other times during the Comeback Special's taping/rehearsals.

After attending a 50th Anniversary Screening of the Elvis Comeback Special '68 sponsored by Fathom Events last week, I did not expect to be posting about it on the Jimmy Webb topic here, but here I am posting about a cool Elvis Presley-Jimmy Webb connection. I am betting all the "Webb Heads" already know about it. This connection was new to me and may be new to other fans, too.
2018-08-02_ELVIS COMEBACK SPECIAL POSTER.jpg

A few comments (my opinions only) first about the screening event (as well as some photos for the Elvis fans below). The Comeback was shown (digitally, I expect) using the original aspect ratio, resulting in a blurred projection on screen, a disappointing lack in technology for 2018.

The two big production numbers featuring Elvis do not hold up in 2018; both are campy at best and disrupt the flow and intimacy of the improvisational acoustic segment--one that remains classic ELVIS GOLD. Also golden is Elvis's still powerful and relevant performance of “If I Can Dream”, calling for unity and harmony "in a world that's troubled with pain", staged for closing the special:

The comeback of the Comeback Special began with a recent, taped interview / informal chat between Priscilla Presley and Steve Binder, the Comeback's producer/director, and was held backstage at the same NBC studio where the original show was filmed.

Priscilla feels that the Comeback Special still holds up these days musically and performance-wise including the stage outfits worn by Elvis; in particular, she mentioned the black leather suit still looks "cool".

She also explained something I had never liked about the Special: why Elvis "goofed off" (my words) during performing. He stops singing to make comical comments or he changes a word in a straight lyric to something comical, laughs with the audience, then picks up with the song again.

Priscilla appreciates that the director kept these informalities (not goofs, my word) in the show because "this was Elvis", his making fun of himself, having fun in general when jamming was the real Elvis. In fact, she shares, the main premise of the special--Elvis singing and playing with his band--was exactly what Elvis used to do when not working. Priscilla even recalls Elvis sitting around and jamming with a group of guys in his free time as far back as when Priscilla was in Germany with Elvis (serving in the U.S. Army, between 1958 and 1960).

.
I can better appreciate these comical moments now. In fact, when watching the Comeback after not seeing it for many years, I heard Elvis partially sing, partially say--after flubbing a line: "I don't think that I can take it...." When I heard this line, I thought, oh wow!, was Elvis actually singing a lyric from "MacArthur Park"? If so, had he been aware of what he said/sang and where that line came from?

When the ending credits rolled with the music credits, I read confirmed recognition of the line I had heard:

"MACARTHUR PARK"....JIMMY WEBB

An ASCAP-compliant credit for an 8-word lyric! Very, very cool.

After the Comeback Special ended, Bonus Bloopers from the making of the Comeback were shown. In three of the bloopers, Elvis paraphrased, "I don't think that I can take it / 'Cause it took so long to bake it / And I'll never have that recipe again."

Obviously, Elvis was very aware of the song. Of course. Everyone was aware of this song in 1968. :D

Related to Elvis and "MacArthur Park", Jimmy Webb recently posted on his facebook page about owning an unreleased recording of Elvis singing "MacArthur Park." (Could JW have been referring to the blooper edits? or the full-fledged song?) Due to contractual reasons, Elvis's recording of "MP" could not be released, Jimmy shared, and added, his copy is one of his treasures. (Note: Off of facebook, Jimmy has often identified the "contractual" stoplight to be Colonel Parker who wanted to own the publishing rights to all the songs recorded by Elvis.)

For Jimmy Webb fans, Elvis fans and MacArthur Park fans, I found the Bloopers Bonus on YouTube, and you can listen to all three "MP" mentions by The King of Rock and Roll here:

The lyric appears approximately at:
2:38
5:20
7:30





The photos below are for Elvis fans who were not able to attend a screening of the return of the Comeback Special. No Comeback posters were on display at the theater. No cardboard, stand-up Elvis Presleys were on display. Taking photos of this signage, located outside of Auditorium 7 at the theater, was the only "photo opp" for us Elvis fans: proof that "Elvis had been in the house".

A tremendous article was published today by udiscovermusic in honor of Jimmy's birthday:
.
Jimmy Webb And The Great Americana Songbook
One of the world’s pre-eminent songwriters, Jimmy Webb can be said to have spearheaded an Americana equivalent of The Great American Songbook.

By Martin Chilton
It is fair to say that Americana, a melting pot of classic country, folk, bluegrass, Celtic music, Southern rock and Delta blues, has its own equivalent of The Great American Songbook – The Great Americana Songbook, if you will – and pre-eminent among the titan songwriters of that genre is (Jimmy) Webb.

TWO REVIEWS POSTED ON JIMMY'S WEBSITE:

“I love Jimmy Webb’s songs, always have. They are dazzling and form the soundtrack of ours lives, from “MacArthur Park” to “Wichita Lineman” and dozens of songs in between. Jimmy’s new book, “The Cake and the Rain,” is dazzling too. The life and times of this Oklahoma kid turned songwriter is told with the same tender, funny and often heartbreaking phrases and visions he works into his best songs. In Jimmy’s voice I hear the sound of the railroad train, the music of the birds, the secret music of love gone wrong and friendship gone right- and life pouring, burning, running through his fingertips and his powerful visions of flying all the way out and all the way back home. Beautiful book. Get it, you need it. ”
— Judy Colllins

“There are popular songs, and there are great songs, and they are not always the same. . . It’s the fact that people are still singing and still listening to the songs Jimmy Webb started writing 50 years ago that’s a defining difference.”
— Patt Morrison, The Los Angeles Times

Welcome to Glen Campbell Forums, Seaudgive!
I am still searching for the article you are looking for.

Are you interested in this type of train tour because of the Jimmy Webb connection?
Or perhaps an interest in traveling by rail with musicians/songwriters in general?

1. This is one company (maybe the same one that Jimmy used?) that will be offering perhaps their last such trip this coming fall 2018:

2. In this article on Forbes' website, other new trips by rail are described with very awesome photos.
A typical Roots on the Rails train trip is limited to about 50 passengers because of the number of sleeping accommodations aboard. Musicians play and jam while the train is rolling — on chartered or public trains — and give concerts for the passengers during stopovers at hotels and other venues.

Music-themed train travel with artists such as Jimmie Dale Gilmore would be great fun!


3. For information about Jimmy Webb's events (all concerts at this time), visit:

Some of Jimmy's fans have asked him to repeat the cross-country (U.S.) trip by train in the past. With fan interest, perhaps he will arrange for a similar trip in the future. I doubt it, but one never knows.

Yep that link is dead. But the original post is from 2010 so... Sadly enough it's not available on archives.org. But... welcome to the forums!
