Thank you, Cowpoke.
True, Glen Campbell's officialdom as a bonafide member of The Beach Boys seems to have ebbed and flowed over the years! (This would make for an interesting topic!)

Updates for the SirirusXM radio broadcast on the Good Vibrations: The Beach Boys Channel (Ch. 4):
In addition to today's debut (Friday, August 10 at 5 pm ET), The Beach Boys' interview replays Friday, August 10 at 8 pm ET; Saturday, August 11 at 12 pm ET; Sunday, August 12 at 3pm and 10 pm ET; Tuesday, August 14 at 2 pm ET; and Wednesday, August 15 at 11 pm ET.

Great posts Dee. Btw, I love the fact that Beach Boys Legacy lists Glen as one of the 10 official Beach Boys. Not everyone in the BB fan community agrees with that assessment. But I do of course!

~~~Wax up your surfboard and get ready to catch the (air) waves this week
with GLEN CAMPBELL's former band mates, THE BEACH BOYS.~~~

THE BEACH BOYS REUNITE! On July 30, 2018, Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, Mike Love, David Marks and Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys reunited on stage for a "Town Hall" conversation to be broadcast on SiriusXM radio. Moderated by Rob Reiner and held at the Capitol Studios in Hollywood, California, this historic event was arranged as a springboard for discussing The Beach Boys' newest album. Fans will be able to listen to and engage with the event on SiriusXM radio this week, August 10th.

Why historic? A few of many reasons include:

*This occasion marks the first time The Beach Boys appeared together since their band's 2012 50th anniversary tour.

*They gather not only for conversation with host Rob Reiner and, of course, each other, but also with fans!

*The Boys gathered at Studio A at Capitol Records, where they last recorded together more than 55 years ago.

*The highlight of the Town Hall programming included discussion about their latest album, released by Capitol/UMe on June 8th, 'The Beach Boys With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra'. The album includes 17 tracks that meld original Beach Boys' vocal performances with new symphonic arrangements performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios (The Beatles, Pink Floyd) located in London, England.

*Perhaps for the first time ever, some of the stories behind The Beach Boys' songs and albums are revealed to the public, including the Brian Wilson song that made Paul McCartney cry when he first heard it.

*In the history of broadcasting, radio was the music industry's most important platform for delivering music (and more). SiriusXM proves (Dee's opinion only) radio still rules the airways with open mic, live programming such as this one.

*Based on information provided by early press releases, the original vocals of The Beach Boys were utilized for the new album. The album's liner notes still credit both the original singers and the original studio musicians. Glen Campbell is credited on these tracks:

HELP ME, RHONDA (GUITAR) [Some credible sources do not credit Glen on this song; rather, he is credited for HELP ME, RONDA, the first Beach Boys' recording of this song prior to its "remake" as "HELP ME, RHONDA". Note the difference in the spelling of Rhonda/Ronda, which helps to distinguish these two very different recordings.]

YOU STILL BELIEVE IN ME (GUITAR)

Billboard has been covering the new album as well as the historic broadcast. Melinda Newman of Billboard identified 7 highlights of the Town Hall meeting, one of which referenced GLEN CAMPBELL. You can read the highlights here:
https://www.billboard.com/articles/news ... hall-recap

:arrow: The Town Hall begins airing on Aug. 10th, 5 pm EST/PST in the US, Puerto Rico and Canada on SiriusXM channel 4, a satellite radio channel dedicated this summer only to the Boys' music and titled "Good Vibrations: The Beach Boys Channel".

Album Preview Video from their latest joint project (look for their homage to The Beatles at the very beginning of this clip):
Upcoming Project: It was Christmas in April when Brian Wilson announced his 2018 holiday concert tour with Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin, performing 'The Beach Boys Christmas Album' in its entirety. Dates & locations are now listed on Brian's official website (with additional appearances to be hopefully added). Also, on Brian Wilson's website:
Fans can expect to hear Beach Boy classics “Little Saint Nick,” “The Man with all The Toys,” and a selection of Brian’s favorite Yuletide songs including “Blue Christmas” and “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.”

Wilson will also perform songs from his critically acclaimed solo album What I Really Want for Christmas named for its Bernie Taupin-penned title track as well as “Christmasey,” with lyrics by his friend JIMMY WEBB.

Another PEER update today, this one about the King of Rock 'n' Roll!

Fifty years after Elvis Presley's infamous, televised '68 Comeback Special, fans around the world will have an opportunity to watch the special on the big screen, "king-size", at a Fathom-sponsored event on August 16 and 20, hopefully at a movie theater near you!

Iconic Television Special starring singer Elvis Presley, originally aired on December 3, 1968. It marked Elvis Presley’s return to live performance and re-launched Presley’s singing career. This anniversary event includes the legendary television special, plus an exclusive look at the making of the special, featuring a walkthrough of the NBC soundstage with insights from director/producer Steve Binder and others influenced by Presley, his music and this iconic event. For showtimes and ticket pre-orders (highly recommended by Dee), U.S. and International, visit Fathom's official website at: https://www.fathomevents.com/events/elv ... l/theaters.*

Twenty-six years after Roger Miller passed away, the King of the Road will be honored with an important tribute album due for release by BMG on August 31, 2018. Produced by Miller’s son Dean Miller and Colby Barnum Wright, the 2-disc album includes covers by more than 25 artists, from Dolly Parton to Ringo Starr. A television special in honor of Roger is in the works, too.

Early press notes* provide a tantilizing short list of things you may or may not know about Roger Miller:
He was a fireman who got fired for sleeping through fires.
He held the record for the most GRAMMYs in a single night for 18 years — until Michael Jackson broke it in 1984 with ‘Thriller.’
He and Leonard Nimoy were in Army boot camp together.
He was one of the first people to reach the site of the plane crash that killed Patsy Cline.
His songs have been covered by George Jones, Barbra Streisand, Glen Campbell, Neil Diamond, R.E.M. and dozens of others.
He beat out The Beatles for a GRAMMY award.
He recorded the first version of “Me and Bobbie McGee.”
He had a rhyme for “orange.” (“Door hinge” according to Roger's son Dean.)

The Official Press Release for 'King of the Road: A Tribute to Roger Miller':

'King of the Road' Recruits Ringo Starr, Kacey Musgraves, Willie Nelson, Dozens More to Honor Roger Miller
Out Aug. 31, the Tribute to Country's Most Influential Eccentric also Features Dolly Parton, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard
'King of the Road: A Tribute to Roger Miller,' out Aug. 31 via BMG, pays long overdue respects to one of American music's premier entertainers and songwriters. The two-disc collection contains new renditions of Miller's songs by Ringo Starr, Dolly Parton, Eric Church, Loretta Lynn, John Goodman and more than two dozen others, including Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard on one track. Produced by Miller's son, Dean Miller, and Colby Barnum Wright, 'King of the Road' offers a fresh look at the work of a creative giant who has been gone 26 years but whose genius continues to shape contemporary music in ways both overt and subtle.

Before Miller's premature death of cancer at age 56, the Country Music Hall of Famer had 31 Top 40 Billboard country hits (10 of which crossed over to the pop chart), including his signature songs "Dang Me" and "King of the Road." He held the record for most GRAMMY wins in a single night until Michael Jackson and 'Thriller' broke it in 1984. Miller wrote songs and voiced a character for Walt Disney's 1973 Robin Hood film. He also wrote the music and lyrics for the Tony-winning Big River, helping launch the career of actor John Goodman, who reprises the musical's "Guv'ment" on 'King of the Road.' As Dean Miller writes in liner notes accompanying 'King of the Road,' "Roger Miller was too gigantic to be contained by genres and definitions."

'King of the Road' includes versions of Miller's biggest '60s hits, like "Chug-A-Lug" (Asleep at the Wheel ft. Huey Lewis) and "England Swings" (Lyle Lovett), and lesser-known treasures from a catalog full of gems. As with Miller's own output, the album contains plenty of unexpected turns -- country superstar Eric Church's playful take on Robin Hood's "Oo De Lally," for instance, or Starr's selection of "Hey, Would You Hold It Down?," a song from Miller's long-out-of-print 1979 'Making a Name for Myself' album. By any standard of measurement, Miller was "one of the greatest songwriters that ever lived" -- even if he did say so himself. And he did, in the first of a handful of the album's live-performance interstitials that capture the spontaneous wit of a mind that operated at a breakneck pace.

There is a television event in the works, more information coming soon.

The scope of material and performances on 'King of the Road' both capture Miller's personality and convey an astonishing legacy that's still felt today. "Roger Miller didn't have to say much," Dean writes in the liners. "You were simply drawn to him. He had a magnetic smile, and electric wit and a passion for life and music that transcended generations."

Glen's Beach Boy buddy Al Jardine is launching a solo tour called A Postcard from California. I bet Al will tell some Glen Campbell stories (and maybe even show some footage of Glen recording "A Postcard from California" with Al, just a guess from my part) during these concerts.

Johnny Cash’s Acclaimed ‘Unearthed’ Returns As Nine-LP Vinyl Box Set*
JC.jpg
JC.jpg (9.53 KiB) Viewed 1371 times
Although the world lost the great Johnny Cash on September 12, 2003, his music remains as popular as ever, if not more so.
On November 3, 2017, the Man in Black's previously-released box set, "Unearthed", will be reissued for the first time on vinyl in a nine-album, 79-songs box set. The albums will be pressed on high-quality 180-gram vinyl.

From Wikipedia:
'Unearthed' is a box set by Johnny Cash, released two months after his death in 2003. It was produced by Rick Rubin and released by American Recordings. The first three discs feature outtakes and alternate versions of songs recorded for American Recordings, Unchained, American III: Solitary Man and American IV: The Man Comes Around. The fourth disc, My Mother's Hymn Book features gospel songs Cash first learned from his mother as a child and was later reissued as a standalone release. The final disc is a best of distillation of the first four American albums. Rock historian Graeme Thomson in his monograph, The Resurrection of Johnny Cash: Hurt, Redemption, and American Recordings has called 'Unearthed' a monolithic achievement. It was certified Gold on 12/2/2004 by the RIAA."

Did you know that Glen Campbell is on one of the set's 79 tracks? Check out track no. 12 on disc 3, "Redemption Songs", from the original CD release of 'Unearthed':

Looking forward to listening to Jeff Dayton's new album, Cowpoke.
Another peer and friend of Glen's has also announced a special project:

Dolly Parton, the "Fairy Godmother" of country music, will release her first ever children's album 'I Believe in You' and a reissue of her children's book, Coat of Many Colors.
Dolly_I Believe in You Album Cover.png

The 14-track album features songs of inspiration written and performed by Dolly including a new recording of her signature song "Coat of Many Colors" and a spoken audio track with Dolly reading the song's lyrics. The children's book is based on this same song and was previously released in 1996, after Dolly started the "The Imagination Library", her non-profit organization that has freely distributed over 100 million books to children in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, and Belize. According to the official Dolly Parton website, all proceeds from “I Believe in You” will support this organization's mission.

Early press reviews reveal the new album should appeal to children and adults.

What else has Dolly Parton been up to?

The ACM Honors recognized Dolly's tremendous philanthropic work with a special merit award presented to her on August 23, 2017.

Shortly after the official announcement on August 8th that Glen Campbell had passed away, Dolly Parton (with Charlie Daniels) was one of the first music artists to publicly recognize Glen's enormous legacy with a videotaped tribute that was tweeted and then picked up by major television networks and cable channels. I felt that her strong affirmations ("Glen is one of the greatest voices that ever was in the business" and "he was one of the greatest musicians") forever sealed Glen's place in the history of country music. You can watch or re-visit this recorded tribute here: https://youtu.be/Z0GAgz5hKJs.

This year is a special one for Dolly Parton: she released her first album "Hello, I'm Dolly" on the Monument label 50 years ago. Her self-assured smile pictured on the album's front cover seems to suggest Dolly knew she was destined for a long and brilliant career in country music.

Thanks Dee. That makes it easy for me to post about... Jeff Dayton, Glen's former guitarist and bandleader. Jeff is doing a tribute concert later this month in La Junta, Colorado.

And, also this month, Jeff will release an album called "Glen and Me".
