Where is the snow? I wonder if they took this during a rehearsal. Or maybe there is a blooper here. Gotta pull out the DVD.

Just as I had expected...

Re: Review: Glen Campbell, “The Legacy [1961-2017]”

Cowpoke, you are all over it. They had enough room on that last CD for all of those songs. Maybe it is tied to royalties...
I am with you...I don't know who the picker is, but, imo, they could have done a lot better.

Re: Glen Campbell's Ovation 1624 (Proto X014)

Just my observation about Glen's use of a nylon. Once Jerry joined the Goodtime Hour, Glen seemed to gravitate to nylons quite a bit more. Glen using Jerry's Baldwin, with its Prismatone caused quite a stir at Ovation, which in turn probably was the catalyst for Ovations hurried development of a pie...

It was a bluegrass album and the front cover certainly portrayed a bluegrass setting. I had come to think the guitar Glen was holding was a prop, as matching it up with a corre...
