Re: The Hitching Post in Albuquerque, NM Where Glen Campbell Played

This may be a bit of a de-rail,, but as it involves Billie-Jean, it might also be the place where someone can clearup a possibly apocryphal story that has bothered me for several years. I've heard it said that, many years after Albequerque, after the Goodtime Hour was done and dusted, and "Rhineston...

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

An '81 British TV show of Glen, with the tag ending.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zngrnpy2Wwo

The air-date is likely traceable by some.

Then, in May '81 at West Point... 6:35 into the clip.

Gettin' closer!

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

Wups! Looks like I misread it... Here's the opening of the 77 show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d720RIIePbY&list=PLv_Z-b9pO4-igmuGdsOBxV5bSyIsfnACg And nope- the tagline is NOT there, all of which throws my previous calculations utterly off. Jay, you can have your money back.. and the rest of th...

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

Ok, so to re-cap a little: "Rhinestone Cowboy" came out in May of '75 and by 77 Glen was adding "and Cow gir-r-r-rls" to the end of the song, per the Royal Festival Hall concert.. The issue date of the Live album (November '77) isn't a lot of help, because it really does not equate to the date(s) of...

Re: Best of Glen Campbell on YouTube

He was doing both in the PBS concert (with the South Dakota Symphony), if memory serves. That was in 2001.

So we can see him use those "extras" at least that far back.

Re: Guitar Glen is Playing on 80's Glen Campbell show

Jay, I'll go with that, but every 335 in my experience, plus the ones I just looked at on the 'Net have one feature that the one in the vid seems to be different- the cord is plugged in to the "edge" of the lower bout instead of on the front...? Otherwise, controls, fret markers, headstock inlays, e...

Re: Guitar Glen is Playing on 80's Glen Campbell show

Can't figure out how to edit that post, but please excuse my goof. While I used the short-form "T-bird", I meant to use "T-head" for THunderhead..

Can't even blame auto-correct for it. Has to be digital interface between brain and keyboard's fault!

Apologies!

Re: Guitar Glen is Playing on 80's Glen Campbell show

Not sure what it is, but I don't think it's a T-bird. Headstock is not the "usual" Ovation headstock, and the t-birds all seem to have had a tailpiece that wraps around the end of the guitar. in the video, the bridge seems to stand alone. I was thinking it might be an Epiphone Dot -the layout and co...

Re: Glen Campbell's Gibson B25-12N Twelve String

I have a copy (my third) of "the Astounding Twelve String Guitar'' that I located about a year ago in a used record shop. My plan is to digitize it on my own using a USB turntable that I found in a local audio store for $59.00 on sale. That's one way to get a digital version (for your own use), whic...

Rare (to me) photo?

Came across this while looking around for images of a certain relic'd Stratocaster in Glen's hands. This seems to be a picture of Glen and a band rehearsing/performing in the paint department of a hardware store. (??) I've played in front of stores, and even on stages set up inside stores, but never...
