Dig the "Heavy Guitars" album cover with the portrait or drawing of Glen Campbell as Paul Bunyan!

A guitar for an axe or sledgehammer~

A sunburst at his back, a prelude for "Goodtimes" to come.

US amazon.com has a Letting Go promo 45 Single A & B same side for around 12 dollars, plus 4 dollars S&H.

Yes, I can't wait to hear the instrumental of Cathy's Clown on vinyl with my two big speakers blaring, what do you think happened to the model on the front cover of The Bandits Electric 12, something tells me that she may have married a producer.

From Sunrise to Sunset. Seminal mid sixties Hollywood~

All Shadow and light*

Thank you, Dee!

These are the albums that took over a year to figure out, there are versions with less songs, which I own as well, I only wished that I had a guide like the picture here, where to start, hours of fun and listening pleasure built into them.

The best one is the bottom right corner, The Artistry Of Glen Campbell, the other albums are between 1963-1966.

Tender Mercies owes the credit, Duvall's beard is central to the role!

And for the record, Haggard performed Milk Cow Blues the last two times he was in town.

The first versiion was true to form, or the young Rick Nelson, the second time his band performed a 1930's Country and Western Swing style.

Glen Campbell, Robert Duvall. Haggard, these are the men you want running the show.

I do have one incredible moment to share, in the late 90's Haggard performed at a small nightclub, my wife and I were standing to the side of the bus in the dark, a distant street lamp for our only available light.

From the shadows, Bonnie and what had to be some of the bookers or volunteers arose with a basket of apples in Bonnie's arms.

It was quite a revelation, being traditionalist, it's only natural, they would crave fresh fruit or pickings while on the road.

Bonnie held the basket close to her mid waist, the throng of people could tell that she wanted to get back on the bus without any outside interference, it was truly, the parting of the waters, we all had to give her credit finding a grocery store open after the show, quite a haul, the bodyguards so to speak were more than glad to accompany Bonnie and be at her side, they were all smiling.

Merle stood at the top of the bus steps like he was a train conductor between stops, he was taking it all in, the throng of people, he loved my wife, she looked like she was right out of a 1940 hollywood movie, Merle signed and dated a number of her albums, the one about trains come to mind, he also gave us two 8X10 autograph promo pictures, that we will cherish for always.

These are our people* The apple of our eye. Where the sour turns to sweet..

Tender Mercies!

"Tender Mercies", one of my favorite Duvall films!
Thanks for reminding me of it, Rob. Perhaps my local library has a copy of it for a nice Memorial Day Weekend Watch!

Don't give up the search, Rob!

Keep an eye on ebay. You shouldn't have to pay a hundred bucks for it. And you shouldn't have to buy it from a seller in another country (and pay a fortune for shipping). Once in a great while, an excellent buy will be listed, depending on whether you are wanting "sealed", "mint", "excellent", etc.

Individual tracks (maybe the entire album, too?) can be found on YouTube. How about this hot guitar playing by the one and only?

WOW DEE!

That is a huge update, I had never heard about Duvall confronting Hathaway on the set of True Grit.

This is a big moment for me, and I am glad that I got to hear it here for the first time.

I sat through Tender Mercies two times in a row,, I was only around 19 years old.

I am glad that I bank all my money and time on Duvall.

It is an honor to hear that Duvall stuck up for Campbell.

And I am also glad that Campbell remained faithful to his craft, movies have their place in my heart and psyche, although I have found over time music says so much much more than a bunch of flickering images.

I'm sure that I am not the only one who feels this way.

Music fills a tremendous void in our lives~

The I'lll Be Me documentary shows it takes up the biggest part or space of our brain.

Thank you Dee,

For the last year I googled The Bandits Electric Twelve, and avoided for the most part, a certain "major" site wants you to download it, doy*

And so, there was a seller in Canada who had a vintage copy of the LP for around 12 dollars, that is gone!

There are a couple other sellers att the same site for a little extra in Italy and Australia, oh, the postage and different rates country to country...

No I am not going to buy the MP3 version.

I hope that someone bought and found the copy from Canada much the same way the picture sleeve for Letting Go~

drool*
r
I did send you a picture of Glen Campbell rare LP's that I hope to see posted soon.

But you know, I'm just a kid in a candy store, the world's greatest forum and members.

Thank you, Dee, everyone.

Love,
Rob

Rob, I suspect that Robert Duvall may have given Glen advice about how to deal with Henry Hathaway, the director, who did not have a good reputation with at least some actors in the industry.

From Turner Classic Movies' website:
Hathaway and (John) Wayne had worked together on a number of films before, but his dictatorial style rubbed his younger stars the wrong way. Tired of seeing the director berate Glen Campbell in front of cast and crew, Robert Duvall forced a confrontation one day. The two men had a heated exchange with each other until the air cleared and they managed to come to terms.

I had read similar stories previously. (Maybe in Glen's autobio? How about it, Cowpoke?) :)
