Thanks for the info Dee, I have listened to the Everybody's talking track. Glen's voice obviously isn't at its best, but a good performance non the less. I agree with you jay, the picture looks like it has been morphed in some way and Glen's hair doesn't seem quite right either. Dee, on the top of the guitar neck where the tuning pegs are, they have taken the Rickenbacker logo off the guitar. So obviously they are playing around with the images of Glen etc.
I can't wait to hear the whole album, but I wish Glen had recorded these Jimmy Webb songs much earlier in his career when his voice was stronger.
I must say it was kept under wraps very well, since Glen recorded the vocals a long time ago now.

The official press release for Adiós provides information about the songwriters/artists represented on Glen Campbell's new album:
The 12-track collection features songs that Campbell always loved but never got a chance to record, including several from Jimmy Webb, his longtime collaborator behind some of his biggest hits like "Wichita Lineman" "By The Time I Get To Phoenix," and "Galveston." In addition to the bittersweet title track, "Adiós," first popularized by Linda Ronstadt, Campbell also sings Webb's longing love song "Just Like Always" and country weeper "It Won't Bring Her Back." He revisits "Postcard From Paris" with his sons Cal and Shannon and daughter Ashley singing the line, "I wish you were here," resulting in a powerful and heartfelt message of a family singing together one last time.

Adiós sees Campbell putting his spin on several classic songs including "Don't Think Twice It's All Right," inspired by Jerry Reed's version of Bob Dylan's timeless tune and "Everybody's Talkin'", a banjo-filled take on the song that Campbell never recorded but famously performed on the "Sonny & Cher Show" in 1973 with a 19-year-old Carl Jackson. Campbell's daughter Ashley plays banjo on the song and joins her dad on several tracks on the album. Other songwriters featured include Roger Miller with "Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)," which begins with a home recording of Miller singing the tune at a guitar pull before going into Campbell's rendition with Vince Gill on harmonies, Dickey Lee's honky tonk heartbreaker "She Thinks I Still Care" and Jerry Reed's Johnny Cash hit "A Thing Called Love." Willie Nelson joins his old pal for a poignant duet of Nelson's 1968 "Funny How Time Slips Away" while (Carl) Jackson tells Campbell's life story in "Arkansas Farmboy." "I wrote 'Arkansas Farmboy' sometime in the mid- to late-'70s on a plane bound for one of the many overseas destinations I played with Glen between 1972 and 1984," reveals Jackson. "The song was inspired by a story that Glen told me about his grandpa teaching him 'In The Pines' on a $5 Sears & Roebuck guitar when he was only a boy. That guitar led to worldwide fame and fortune, far beyond what even some in his family could comprehend."

BTW, "Everybody's Talkin'" (mp3) is now available for download from online music sites.

If you had already ordered the digital album, vinyl album, and/or CD on amazondotcom last Friday, the 14th, you may want to double check your order. The site's listing on Friday, the 14th, has a misspelled album title and incomplete info. Amazondotcom now has a second listing with the corrected title and other updates. The vinyl album is expensive; perhaps the price will drop closer to the expected release date, June 9th. UPDATE 4/17/17: it appears that the mp3 album has been corrected but not the vinyl LP and CD. -Dee

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!
