Two different musical styles and not different really at all. Universal talent, and two guys that were both deeply loved and respected by their fans and their peers.

Baldwin thanks so much for sharing the upload!

I met Leon and Glen in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada that cold November 18th day in 1983 as they were entering CHCH TV 11 studio to record "In Session."
My wife and I were an unofficial two-person welcoming committee. I read in the local newspaper that Leon and Glen were going to be recording a TV reunion special, so I called the producer (Ian Anderson) who told me what time the limousines would arrive. I shook Leon's hand and he autographed a couple of items for me. I have enjoyed his music since I was 15 (1970), so it was a real pleasure to meet him and to talk to him.

Here is a link where anyone can download the complete video that I recorded from TV on VHS. I am the source of the videos you see online. I sent the VHS tapes to Gloria Shiraef, and she transferred them to DVD. Enjoy!

Wow, thanks for the info. Yes, there's very little that I found referencing the show apart from the Jim Webb and BB King episodes of the show which have seen a release. Even the post on this forum's archives was hard to find on Google! How strange.

Welcome to Glen Campbell Forums, FireCooky. Great question.
Glen's performance of "Gentle On My Mind" (how about that outstanding guitar solo!) is from a Canadian television series "In Session".
The series was filmed live at CHCH TV Studios in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
There were 26 episodes in total, 13 from 1983 and 13 from 1987.

The segment you posted with Glen and Leon Russell is from one of the In Session episodes featuring these two artists in 1983.

We believe the Session tracks included:

I saw the light / Gentle on my mind / Heartbreak hotel / They still dance to waltzes in England / Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms / Jambalaya / A song for you / Southern nights / At the end of the line / You've lost that lovin' feelin / Columbus Stockade Blues / Cryin' / You don' know me / Mama don't allow / Lady blue / I Believe to my soul (a Ray Charles cover) aka Tryin' to make a fool out of me / Rhinestone cowboy

Fans of both Leon and Glen have been searching / hoping for this in studio program to be professionally released for years on DVD -- and CD. It was never released, including "Gentle", not to our knowledge. Segments occasionally show up on YouTube and appear to be from fans' recordings. Oddly, there is very little information on the net about the In Sessions series.

The above information was posted on Glen's forum on May 24, 2012 by Cowpoke, co-admin here.

I really like this rendition of Gentle on my Mind with Leon Russell that's on Youtube:



It sure looks like they're performing in a studio, but I can't find a sound recording of the session published anywhere. The audio quality on that video isn't great as it was transferred from VHS. The poster identifies it as having been recorded in 1983.

Does anybody know if this audio was published elsewhere, possibly in a boxed set or an EP?
