Glen played on sessions for the Everly Brothers as early as March 1962 and as late as September 1967. Read more about it here for instance: http://www.everly.net/file/disco/ebonwb.pdf.

And yes Jay, Glen also played on Bowling Green for the Everly Brothers on March 22, 1967. It's probably where he got the idea to record it himself, which he did on May 17 1967, the same date as Gentle on My Mind.

Looks like you are spot on DMVawter. There are several shots of Glen that are attributed to sitting in on the Everly Brothers sessions in 67. And that one is one of them "Don Everly in the studio with Glen Campbell (1967)" Maybe the Hit Sound album? Maybe sitting in on Bowling Green, which he later released? Fun stuff. Thanks for the post!

You know, you could very well right about that! Nice one. Glen did play on some of the mid-sixties albums by The Everly Brothers.

Is that Don Everly in the third photo from the bottom?

Early on when I was working with Glen he pulled this guitar out and told me it was his session guitar. He had me take it home and get it set up so he could use it on the road. At that time it had a Telecaster Bridge pickup on it and I think the other pickups were the originals. He played it on a few short tours and it went back into the closet. I only saw it again when I was at Glens home. I told Glen that it was the best sounding guitar he had and it was, although, he could make any guitar sound great.
