Yay! The 12th of Never arrived today after a long, long time. "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" makes its official return on the new CD reissue of 'The Astounding 12-String Guitar of Glen Campbell' album complete with ALL 12 original tracks. Greyscale's production is high up on the scale of high quality reissues, too. (Although, admittedly, I haven't listened to the CD yet; ha! There is no notation in the insert about remastering.) Photos and comments below. :D

The CD's reproduction of the original album art is well done. The jewel case insert (not a separate booklet) includes the original liner notes that were printed on the LP's back cover. Although it would have been politically correct to have changed one word in the notes, Greyscale chose authenticity and kept the original language.

The border seen through the left side of the jewel case is new artwork with part of a guitar's fret board and perhaps part of the body of a guitar. This artwork is also used inside the jewel case behind the CD "bed".

The smokin' GC photo (literally, Glen smoking a "cig") that was on the back cover of the vinyl album's jacket is also on the back of the CD insert. Greyscale again went for an exact reproduction by using the same pic (with a light brown tint).

Last but not least, omg, the disc is a PICTURE DISC:

Nothing escapes the eyes of a Glen Campbell collector with 44 years of experience! (especially a collector who had brought a few things to Glen's attention that he didn't know) Thank you, Ar. (I had been a click away from ordering The best of GC DVD earlier this week, then decided to post about it first. :) )

See the next new post, Ar....I posted a few astounding pictures for you and other members to enjoy.

Dee,

I have been looking at this DVD also....I would speculate that it IS a Bootlegged Product-mentions in certain areas AUS/NTR0.
There is a number that should match up on the back and this one does not! Also, with the cheap prices verses the costly ones, they are a dead give-away...Kind of like buying the LP's on HUA-SUN, FIRST RECORDS, and other Asian Releases. There are a lot of DVD's that ARE ok but the ones that blacken out other material to read, I wouldn't take a chance!! If they mention PAL related, unless you have a player that does BOTH, it will not play. The majority of material on this DVD ARE from U-tube and other videos, combined. A reminder-----Just because it is SEALED, it doesn't mean it's BRAND NEW! Anyone these days can put Glen's picture on it and seal it up....Hope this helps you and others. Trust me in almost 44 years of collecting, this is 1 I will NOT purchase....

I have been seeing a DVD "Best of GC" listed on ebay (expensive!) and amazon (not so expensive!) sites. It seems to be an import from Australia, looks like a bootleg and yet it was apparently released by Goldenlane Records in 2017, and again in 2018, same label that released the nice picture disc (LP) last year. It appears to me that the performances may be ones up on youtube.

The DVD seems odd to me because:
--it appears not to be an official release and yet it is using an official GC press image on its front cover
--the "fine print" on the bottom of the case's back cover is blurred in the listing's picture
--Goldenlane Records is listed but so is "Possum"
--it is listed as NTSC by amazon, however, the back of the case reads Format: PAL and Regions: All Regions

I am suspicious, too, because I have seen bootlegged DVDs on the internet that have been packaged to look authentic--and yet the videos are clearly copied (no new performances) from other previously released official DVDs and / or appear to be performances already on youtube (some television performances).

Has anyone purchased this DVD and, if so, could you share with us what you think about its video and audio quality? If it is a scam, we would sure like to caution all the fans who come here to read updates about new CDs/DVDs. Thanks!

Good luck, Ar!

The "12-string" that I had ordered was dispatched with a delivery date of June 23. No tracking. Fingers crossed!
The price has come down to--in pounds--6.55.

The "Too Late" album was ordered May 30th, but has not been dispatched yet. When I looked back at the listing tonight, I saw it is "temporarily out of stock"!!! I hope I did not order it "too late". (amazon/UK) The new price--in pounds--is lower now at 7.58.

Trying to obtain these reissues on CD is like working a part-time job.

I cancelled it only because I didn't know when it would ever get in stock! They credited my account. I might get back into Amazon and just buy it....Funny and Sad at the same time that when an artist passes away, they come up with all "New" or vaulted pulled material. It's all about the $'s, unfortunately!

Thanks for checking the links on the upcoming release, Ar. October is so far away!

BTW, I received a promising email confirmation message from amazon earlier this week: your order for The Astounding 12-String Guitar has been dispatched. Yay! Did you receive your CD yet?

Your info about the Australian label Greyscale explains the higher CD prices. Hopefully, the tracks were remastered. ;)
