Thanks Arlw! Appreciate it very much. We're lucky to have you on this forum!
I am closing in on another set of Andy Williams' tracks that Glen presumably played on. Interestingly enough, they are also present on "25 All-Time Greatest Hits 1956-1961: The Cadence Years".
The tracks were originally released on 1 single:
"In the Summertime (You Don't Want My Love)" b/w "Don't Go to Strangers (Cadence 1389)
Both tracks were recorded in one session on October 17, 1960 (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Williams%27_Best
). This fits in perfectly with Glen's timeline. Glen came to LA in mid-July 1960. However he starved for a few months until he got the gig with The Champs in late October 1960. Now Glen's career as a studio musician didn't really get started until 1961 when he started making demos for American Music (and being recognized as a talented musician by producers who listened to his demos). So if Glen is on this Andy Williams 45rpm it must have been (one of) his first session(s) after moving to LA.
What proof do I have? I have an audience taping of a concert by Andy and Glen in the Grand Palace in Branson. On stage they share the story of how they first met: the recording session for "In The Summertime"! Andy also mentions that it was one of Glen's first jobs as a studio musician. After that they perform the song together. The sound quality is not good, but still, for historical purposes I will try to upload this part of the audience recording to the Resources forum here on Glen Campbell Forums.
PS: both songs were released on this album in late 1961...
