Thanks, Mike.

I have been remiss to not have reported the passing of Steve Hardin on June 28, 2015. Steve had worked/toured with Glen Campbell as a music director, keyboardist and harmonica soloist. Steve was a member of Glen's Caledonia band beginning in 1980. He was a songwriter of top selling country songs including "I Love My Truck", which Glen recorded. He wrote songs for Glen such as: "A Few Good Men" from the 1991 album Show Me Your Way and "Heartache Number Three" and "It's Your World Boys and Girls" from the 1981 album, Glen Campbell Live.

I forgot to mention yesterday that Val Doonican passed away on Wednesday 1st July. Val had a music show on BBC UK TV called the Val Doonican show which ran from 1965 to 1986. Glen was a guest on this show a number of times and Val was a big fan of Glen's. On the Festival Hall concert you see Val in the audience at one point. He was a great entertainer and was like Glen in as much as he new how to win over an audience with his relaxed and jovial qualities and his pure professionalism.

Surprised that nobody posted anything about B.B. King who passed away on May 14th, 2015. A Great loss in the Jazz era. What another great guitar legend. He was 89 but had many problems.

Anne Meara passed away yesterday-a terrific and funny lady she was at age 85. Both will be missed.

Just heard and read that Omar Sharif has Alzheimer's Disease--he is 83--Hoping and praying for him and Glen!

Marty Pasetta died tragically on May 21, 2015. He was a gifted, cutting edge director and producer during the golden age of television. You may not know his name, but you will recognize his work.

In addition to directing Academy Awards telecasts, Emmy and Grammy awards shows, numerous television specials and series, Mr. Pasetta worked with Elvis Presley on the "Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite" special that was apparently seen by every third person on Earth!

Tommy Smothers hired Mr. Pasetta to direct "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" in 1967.

Marty Pasetta also directed "The Glen Campbell Summer Show," (sic), the 1968 summer replacement television show for the Brothers' Comedy Hour. I believe many of us discovered Glen Campbell when he hosted and performed on this summer show.

For a fascinating read of this man's amazing accomplishments and contributions to television, check out:

On April 9, 2015, the infamous Grammy-award-winning, flat-picking "Dobro man", Tut Taylor passed away.
I am aware of one Glen Campbell album on which Glen, The Dillards and Tut Taylor performed: 1964, "12 String Dobro", Tut Taylor and the Folkswingers. (Is there another one? or more?)

This is a nice write-up about Tut Taylor:

That is a good article arlw. As I recall Glen sang The world I used to know,which is one of Rod's songs. I have always loved that song as well as Seasons in. The Sun, which incidently was a hit again with a boy band in the UK. It's sad that another great artist has been silenced.

I pulled these LP's from my collection--Glen Campbell is on them!

More Rod ’77 – ROD MCKUEN & FRIENDS. SR-5092 on STANYAN RECORDS COMPANY Released in 1977. Also available from Rod McKuen is another LP called ROD MCKUEN ’77. It is the companion album to MORE ROD!’77 which is this LP. The label is white with brown writing and has a picture of Rod McKuen stamped on the LP on both sides. Glen Campbell is on side 2 and does a with song with Rod called “ISLE IN THE WATER.” The other artists with Glen on this song are Roy Clark and Dick Rosmini. Pet Clark is also on this record and does the vocals on the song called, “THE WIND OF CHANGE.” On “IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR” vocal duets are by Rod McKuen and Barry McGuire. On “BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE.” Rod does a vocal duet with Liesbeth List. The record and jacket are in very good condition. The LP has some surface scratches and needs to be cleaned. This album marks the 20th Anniversary of Rod McKuen’s entry into the music world as a recording artist. From the thousands of songs, poems, and special material he has recorded (some released and long out of print, some never released.) Stanyan Records, has selected a diverse and sometimes surprising collection as a limited, boxed, numbered and signed five record edition: ROD MCKUEN RETROSPECTIVE 1957/77.

McKuen Country – BS-2931 – 0698-Warner Brothers Records, Inc. Printed in the US. This album of Rod McKuen was released in 1976. (S-41-301). The record is in very good condition, shows some surface scratches, the jacket is near mint condition. Has the Warner Brothers Label on the LP. Produced by Rod McKuen and Wade Alexander Guitars listed are Rod McKuen, Glen Campbell, Roy Clark, Billy Strange, John Morrell, Sneaky Pete, Don Costa, Barry McGuire, Big Jim Sullivan, Dave Koonse. Roy Clark and Pete Seeger also play the banjo. THIS IS A STANYAN RECORDINGS DISTRIBUTED BY WARNER BROTHERS AND TAPES, WARNER BROTHERS RECORDS, INC, A SUBSIDIARY AND LICENSEE OF WARNER BROTHERS INC. Glen Campbell is also listed on the back jacket as one of many performers who have recorded Rod’s music. Others listed are Chet Atkins, Eddy Arnold, Bobby Goldsboro, Tom T. Hall, Tommy Roe, Waylon Jennings, Roy Clark, Johnny Cash, Bobby Wright, Don Cherry, Skeeter Davis, The Nashville Brass, Floyd Cramer, Hoyt Axton, The Anita Kerr Singers, Jimmie Rogers, Leroy Van Dike, Hank Williams Jr., just to name a few! “It is noteworthy that nearly all of these performers listed also write themselves, so they really have to like another writer’s work to perform it.” This album is very rare.

Thanks Rod for all you have done and may you rest in peace.

Mike,
I am with you on that statement-Rod McKuen was ALSO a genius, much like Jimmy Webb! Different styles, but a GREAT writer! He also didn't take credit for a lot of things and let other artists just record/enjoy them! Check out this link:

Don't you just love these nobody critics who offer their opinions on a great artist and obviously have no appreciation of his work and abilities. I think Rod McKuen wrote some timeless classics like Jimmy has.
