Glen also played on some of Willie’s earlier stuff from the sixties...

Here's Glen with Merle Haggard. Glen played on a lot of Haggard sessions in the sixties!

Yes Jay, this version is definitely the best one Glen ever did. Glen's playing really shines through.

On another note, here is the last song from Glen's set at the World's Fair in Knoxville, TN (1982), American Trilogy.

I wonder how many times that 12 had to be refretted? Glen burns it up. Interestingly, Glen was all over the place in what key he played this in...
One in A, one in G and the other in F# (I think)




Your video, Cowpoke, is great because they do not use a 12 to accompany Glen, like on the recordings (I think). This allows more separation...and thusly.... Glen's picking to shine. Great video.

Holy cow, this is a great 12 string instrumental by Glen that I never saw live before.

Glen gets a great response in Knoxville, TN with his performance of Galveston and Country Boy (whose mind is on Tennessee).

Glen never did do much blues music, but the Milk Cow Blues was one of his favorites.

Here are the latest additions to the Glen Campbell Forums youtube channel. In 1982 Glen hosted the World's Fair in Knoxville, TN. He opened with Southern Nights...



and then, in a separate venue at the World's Fair performed a rousing version of Rocky Top!



More soon to come!

I think he ended up performing it in an acoustic-only segment during his shows. I think he would do about 3 songs. Of course, I think this approach was the best. Few can pull this off, as it was nothing.

This version is actually pretty close to the studio version which was released October 1979. In that version Glen also sings along that line with the horns. In later performances he left that out.
