Remember this prior post under "Glen Campbell on YouTube and Other Video Sites"?
ORIGINAL POST & VIDEO FROM THE DONNY & MARIE SHOW :arrow: http://www.glencampbellforums.com/viewt ... nger#p5297" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

NOW UP FOR AUCTION! Description and photos below!

Glen's purple and maroon rhinestone outfit custom-created for this Donny & Marie show is now up for auction along with other celeb's entertainment memorabilia:
A Glen Campbell rhinestone outfit from The Donny and Marie Show
A purple and maroon jumpsuit lavishly decorated with rhinestones, diamond-shaped patches, and rhinestone fringe in a western style, culminating in maroon velvet bell-bottom trim and silver tassels, bearing an interior tag inscribed,"Cotroneo Costume / Hollywood / Mr. Campbell Glen / EC 2 / Size 40," and "EC 2" handwritten in black marker on the inside back. Accompanied by a pair of matching arm cuffs, matching belt, a red rhinestone-studded scarf (not original to the costume), and the original rhinestone-decorated sunglasses. Campbell wore this creation when he appeared on ABC's The Donny and Marie Show, which aired on October 21, 1977. Just off the enormous success of his song, "Rhinestone Cowboy" a couple of years prior, Campbell showed off his comedic chops in a spoof which combined his hit song with the James Bond thriller, Goldfinger, called "Rhinestonefinger." At the time, Donny and Marie were in their teens and were the youngest performers in television history to host their own show. Glen Campbell was a regular on many television programs during the 1970s variety show craze."

I wonder who is in the Glen Campbell Family Quartet?
Sellers, 49, is now board president for Alzheimer's Arkansas and will be one of three people honored at the organization's fifth annual Champions Gala!, to be held Thursday at the Little Rock Marriott. The fundraising event is designed to show some love for Arkansas caregivers who tend to those with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Also to be honored are Patricia Rose Carlton (whose name has inspired a rose motif to run throughout the program) and Michelle Byler. The event will include a VIP reception, silent and live auctions, entertainment by the Glen Campbell Family Quartet and a special reading by former caregiver Karen Hayes.

I realize it's bitter that more and more posts under "New DVD / CD Releases" are actually about releases from other artists covering Glen's songs, but I do really want to draw your attention to this particular cover. As posted before, Alison Kraus covered Gentle on My Mind on her latest album. In an interview she says something about a youtube video with Glen.
One of her new tracks is a gorgeous reading of Gentle On My Mind, a song made famous in the Sixties by the Rhinestone Cowboy himself, Glen Campbell.
Alison can't help drawing my attention to a YouTube clip of his fabulous duet with Stevie Wonder on Bob Dylan's Blowin' In The Wind.
"You're thinking, 'Don't come in, Glen, how can you match Stevie?' but when he does, he's absolutely amazing."

Here's a nice little quiz. Match these "lines" with the songs they came from and match the songs with the artist who performed them. Hint: you should get at least one answer right! :)

It is amazing to think Gentle is 50 years old now. I can still remember buying the album when I worked at a Hifi TV store. The record came with a selection of other albums. I was just getting into Glen at the time and didn't know of the album but then there it was right in front of me. I of course asked to buy it there and then. The same thing happened with Highwayman later. There was a joy in finding these albums, especially the more difficult albums like Norwood, which I spotted in a shop window. We didn't have the benefit of Ebay etc so it was a case of hunting them down through different record shops and collectors' suppliers. Still I got there in the end.

Great find, Mike. Thanks for posting it. New to me, too!

In reply to your question below about "Waltzes", yes, I remember this wonderful performance!
It's a favourite of mine, and I posted it for other fans to enjoy, too, here: http://www.glencampbellforums.com/viewt ... 6879#p6879" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Thank you again,
Dee

I just noticed this track by Bobbie Gentry.


I never knew she had recorded this song. I also noticed Lynn Anderson has a version with the name Bobby instead of Susie.

I noticed this show was being broadcast on The Ultimate Oldies Show. It is regarding the Wrecking Crew. I haven't heard it all yet but I imagine Glen will be included.

Dee, I am glad you enjoyed Glen at the Pebble Mill show. Do you remember he also sang "They still dance to Waltzes in England" at the end of the show. Great version. Sadly, The BBC closed down that site and I believe it has been demolished some years ago.
