Dunno, jay. What is a "TR"?

I hope you can find the backstory on this guitar.
We had posted an article a year or more ago in which Jimmy Webb mentioned he obtained the last GC (?) Ovation guitar produced prior to the closing of the Ovation factory and later Glen had signed it for him. Glen was still able to sign his signature at that time. Agreed: the upside down signing is a bit curious! Here's a wild guess: perhaps Glen had already signed the guitar, then later posed as if he were signing it for a photo. It's odd that the left side of this photo is blurred or faded out, you think?

***

By the way, to set the record straight, Glen Campbell covered "Everybody's Talkin'" on The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour on his Hawaiian episode broadcast Wednesday, October 19, 1971. This '71 performance pre-dates Glen's cover of the song on "The Very First Glen Campbell Television Special", NBC, Sept. 16, 1973, with guests Sonny & Cher among others. (Note: Although titled "The Very First...", it was actually Glen's 2nd special for NBC. The first special was "The Campbells Are Coming", May 10, 1973.)

This is the Goodtime Hour performance on video that I had uploaded and posted last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5bKdM7eSls

I actually prefer Glen's cover on Adiós. :)

I cannot figure out that picture...it is almost like a mixture of a young and old glen ... a morphing picture...and they took "Rickenbacker" off the TR cover. weird...really odd.
And what is with the signatures all over the guitar with the pen in Glen's hand? Can he sign his name upside down?

Editorial Review
Glen Campbell's final studio album Adiós was recorded at Station West in Nashville following Glen's 'Goodbye Tour.' Produced by Glen's longtime banjo player and friend Carl Jackson, the album features Glen singing four Jimmy Webb songs that Glen never recorded but always loved, including the title track. Adios features songs written by Roger Miller, Bob Dylan, Dickey Lee, Jerry Reed, Fred Neil, and includes a duet with Willie Nelson - 'Funny How Time Slips Away' - and special guest Vince Gill on harmony vocals in 'Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)'. The album is a true family affair as Glen's daughter Ashley and sons Cal and Shannon, all perform on the record.

This is a PRE-ORDER AND DUE OUT JUNE 9TH!! I LOVE THIS PICTURE!! Most likely will get the CD AND LP!!!

Glen Campbell to Say Farewell With Final Album 'Adios'
Studio LP, due June 9th, was recorded after the singer-guitarist's Alzheimer's diagnosis and Goodbye Tour in 2012
Rollingstone.com
April 14, 2017


Singer-guitarist Glen Campbell is saying farewell with a final studio album, the appropriately titled Adiós. In advance of the album, out June 9th, Campbell has shared the track list to Adiós, which includes a cover of the 1969 Harry Nilsson song "Everybody's Talkin'."

The songs that make up Adiós were recorded after Campbell wrapped up that tour in an effort to preserve, as Campbell's wife Kim Campbell writes, "what magic was left." Campbell has not performed or recorded since 2012.

Campbell recorded Adiós at Nashville's Station West with producer and longtime collaborator Carl Jackson. Willie Nelson, Vince Gill and Campbell's own children – Ashley, Shannon and Cal – all make guest appearances on Adiós, which features 12 songs Campbell had long loved but never had the chance to record.

Here's the full track list for Adiós and the official sound recording of Track 1, "Everybody's Talkin'":

1. "Everybody’s Talkin’"
2. "Just Like Always"

3. "Funny (How Time Slips Away)" (feat. Willie Nelson)

4. "Arkansas Farmboy"

5. "Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)" (intro by Roger Miller)

6. "Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)" (feat. Vince Gill)

7. "It Won’t Bring Her Back"
8. "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"
9. "She Thinks I Still Care"
10. "Postcard From Paris"
11. "A Thing Called Love"
12. "Adiós"

Arlw, thanks again for the photos you shared of the new Glen Campbell "Rhinestone Cowboy Live" picture disc.
After seeing your photos posted here, I decided to stretch the budget and purchase one from a small store dealer on amazon for $19.99 + free shipping.
The disc arrived this week and it is outstanding! The images on both sides of the vinyl LP are beautifully done (imo). The colors are deeper than I had expected.
Of course I will never play it.
Should this record be added to Glen's compilation LP discography?
Thanks again for sharing your photos with us!

Great picture disc Dee/arlw. I always loved that shirt Glen wore for the concert. Back then Glen always had great outfits.

Thanks for the photos, Arlw and Dee! Very cool. Is a picture disc usually only printed on one side?

And to Mike: I am a fan of Alison Krauss as well. I bet her cover is awesome.

This is a follow-up to the new "Rhinestone Cowboy Live" picture disc that was just released on January 20, 2017.
Thought you all would enjoy photos of this new reveal: the LP is a double-sided picture disc! A huge thank you to Arlw for sharing this information!
Always on the line, Arlw has already received and framed her disc, and gave me the okay to post photos of it on display at her home. Thanks, Arlw!
The first 2 pics are Arlw's. The other photos include both Side A and Side B.
Appears to be a nice production by the Goldenlane label but more expensive than the LP picture discs released by Surfdog Records last year.

(You may need to double click or scroll to view the first two pictures which are large jpgs.)
