Anyone know why did he used the pseudonym "Joe Rainey"? He also co-wrote "Rollin'", "Arkansas" and a duet with T.Tucker, "My Song".

You are right arlw, it was the live in Dublin concert (1981) in which you can see a good selection of songs Steve Hardin played live on stage. The stage was very cramped as I recall and I got the impression it was a very warm theatre as all the band members seemed to be suffering from the heat including Glen. They did release a double alum of that concert also.
As you say arlw, there are many DVD copies available on ebay and Amazon etc.

Steve was into a lot of other things that wasn't a great influence on Glen, but it was his choice....May he rest in peace.

Sheila T,

Steve Hardin was very talented in many things, music and writing. He sure will be missed. I met him in Fort Worth when Cal was born-Glen was at Billy Bob's with the band and Kim with Cal--he was no older than 2-3 months!! This DVD might have him on it: I remember Steve doing some hits with Glen and Carl Jackson outside and they were literally soaked with sweat--I believe it was an overseas Concert Listed 3 below-=-they are available at Amazon.com.

Thanks for the info on Steve. I too remember him from the 80's and have a CD from concert Glen did I believe it was around London or Scotland
where Steve did I'm so lonesome I Could Cry and it was a wonderful job he did. I think there was also a DVD of that concert but for the life of me
cannot remember exactly where it was. But a good concert

That is sad Dee.
I will always remember him as a very kind man. And who could forget his harmonica playing on the live versions of I'm so lonesome I could cry. Boy he had such breath control.

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!
