I have been seeing a DVD "Best of GC" listed on ebay (expensive!) and amazon (not so expensive!) sites. It seems to be an import from Australia, looks like a bootleg and yet it was apparently released by Goldenlane Records in 2017, and again in 2018, same label that released the nice picture disc (LP) last year. It appears to me that the performances may be ones up on youtube.

The DVD seems odd to me because:
--it appears not to be an official release and yet it is using an official GC press image on its front cover
--the "fine print" on the bottom of the case's back cover is blurred in the listing's picture
--Goldenlane Records is listed but so is "Possum"
--it is listed as NTSC by amazon, however, the back of the case reads Format: PAL and Regions: All Regions

I am suspicious, too, because I have seen bootlegged DVDs on the internet that have been packaged to look authentic--and yet the videos are clearly copied (no new performances) from other previously released official DVDs and / or appear to be performances already on youtube (some television performances).

Has anyone purchased this DVD and, if so, could you share with us what you think about its video and audio quality? If it is a scam, we would sure like to caution all the fans who come here to read updates about new CDs/DVDs. Thanks!

Good luck, Ar!

The "12-string" that I had ordered was dispatched with a delivery date of June 23. No tracking. Fingers crossed!
The price has come down to--in pounds--6.55.

The "Too Late" album was ordered May 30th, but has not been dispatched yet. When I looked back at the listing tonight, I saw it is "temporarily out of stock"!!! I hope I did not order it "too late". (amazon/UK) The new price--in pounds--is lower now at 7.58.

Trying to obtain these reissues on CD is like working a part-time job.

I cancelled it only because I didn't know when it would ever get in stock! They credited my account. I might get back into Amazon and just buy it....Funny and Sad at the same time that when an artist passes away, they come up with all "New" or vaulted pulled material. It's all about the $'s, unfortunately!

Thanks for checking the links on the upcoming release, Ar. October is so far away!

BTW, I received a promising email confirmation message from amazon earlier this week: your order for The Astounding 12-String Guitar has been dispatched. Yay! Did you receive your CD yet?

Your info about the Australian label Greyscale explains the higher CD prices. Hopefully, the tracks were remastered. ;)

Cowpoke's dream for new recordings came true after two years!
Thanks for the names of the songs.
I propose that "Clambake" is the demo Glen mentioned in conversation many years ago, except he referred to the song as "Do the Crab".
Seriously.

The album cover is from the same photo shoot as this one:

Dee,

This CD now appears in the link provided--thank you. They must have loaded it up. Amazon doesn't show this in the US, but if you go to the UK, Amazon does list this!!

Unbelievable. This is what I was hoping for. The tracks mentioned on the front cover are:

We Call On Him
Easy Come Easy Go
Spin Out
Stay away Joe
Clambake
All I Needed Was The Rain
I'll Be Back
Cross My Heart

Now what is the connection between all these songs? Yep, it's.... The King!


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

Hi Ar,

This CD release on Capitol could be interesting. You had discovered and posted the amazon link for it in April or May. It showed up in a news feed yesterday, listed on a Canadian online record store at: https://shop.musicvaultz.com/ (scroll down a bit)

The pre-order link for this CD doesn't work. Will check it again in a day or so. Amazon is still showing an October release date. Love this early studio session photo!
