Well Dee, I am not sure Andy discovered Glen, but, Glen did play on some of Andy's records as a session guitarist. One of them possibly was "(In the Summertime) You Don't Want My Love". How do I know? I have an audience tape from the Moon River theatre and Andy and Glen tell a (very funny) story about this recording session. The interesting thing is, this song was released on single in december 1960. If Glen really plays on this song, then it must have been one of the earliest (if not THE earliest) recording of Glen doing session work in Hollywood. And in that case I guess you could say that Andy Williams in a way discovered Glen...

Arlw, would you care to tell us what you have on Glen's session work for Andy Williams? Thanks!

(Dead End Love) was co-written by Glen's Uncle Boo!

In a few articles I found, Glen mentions playing guitar on the soundtrack of the 1963 Paul Newman movie "Hud". Sadly, there was no official soundtrack recording released.

Of course, Hee Haw. Glen and Roy did loads of things on there. I remember seeing Roy, Mel Tillis and Glen singing "When I Stop Dreaming", which Glen later recorded on that Louvin Brothers tribute album.

I may be mistaken but I think Glen & Roy did "Ghost Riders in the Sky" on Hee Haw.

I did see that show where Roy pulled a practical joke on Glen, on a DVD made by a fellow fan.

Regarding "Uphill All the Way" (and thanks for reminding me, I forgot about that one), the soundtrack album contains two tracks that involve Glen.

"Ghost Riders in the Sky" - instrumental w/ Roy Clark
"Unlikely Posse" - duet w/ Mel Tillis

Interesting to hear that "Wild Winds" was also in that movie. I always loved that track.

And who remembers seeing Glen and Roy on stage on some tv show, playing the same guitar at the same time?

...Roy Clark and GC....how many of you remember the 1984-5 tv show Bloopers and Practical Jokes, a segment where Roy plays a practical joke on Glen during their filming of Uphill All The Way. Hosted by Dick Clark and Ed McMahon (both RIP).

Speaking of which, it might be worth checking into how much involvement GC had on the soundtrack album of Uphill. His song Wild Winds was playing during the movie and it's possible he appeared on some other tracks of RClark's or Mel Tillis' that made the soundtrack.

The film was a major dud however, but hey...we still have Norwood as a cult classic!

Glen also plays on these Roy Clark albums on Capitol records:

...and these singles:

SP CAPITOL 5163 Take Me As I Am (Or Let Me Go) / If You'll Pardon Me
SP CAPITOL 5233 It's My Way / I'm Forgetting Now
SP CAPITOL 5350 When The Wind Blows In Chicago / Live Fast Love Hard Die Young

...and probably a lot more that we don't know of!

The Incredible Roy Clark-DOT Records-DOS-25990. This LP was released in the early 70’s and it contains various tracks done by Roy Clark that were released or written by other artists. On side one Roy Clark does “Back In The Race” which was written by Glen Campbell and Vic Dana. (Campbell-Allison Music BMI).

Glen released this track earlier but it is nice to hear Roy Clark do one of Glen Campbell’s tracks. The LP is produced by Joe Allison for NERECO Productions.

Glen is not a musician on this LP but is given credit on the back jacket AND the LP for his song written, “Back In The Race.” The LP is in Mint condition for being 40 years old at the time I bought this!!!!

The record is in Stereophonic. Black label with silver writing and DOT is written in red. Dot Records is a division of Famous Music Corporation located in New York.

There are more GLEN CAMPBELL items with Roy Clark on the banjo than the other way around! Check the early LP's and also DVD's!
