I recently discovered that Glen is playing rhythm guitar on a live album by Roy Clark, called "Roy Clark Live!", released in 1967 on Tower Records (ST/T 5055).
The album was recorded in from March 15 to March 20, 1965 in The Caravan-East Club in Albuquerque.
Glen was in Albuquerque at that time to promote the movie "Baby The Rain Must Fall" in which he plays a (tiny) role. First he performed on stage of the KiMo theatre in Albuquerque (with support from Roy Clark) then the movie was shown. Later in the evening Glen returned the favor by playing on Roy's live recording sessions. Glen played on the first three nights. After that he left to do some concerts (as a supporting act) with The Righteous Brothers(!).
Glen can be heard at the very start of the record, introducing Roy.
What I found interesting is that some the jokes Roy tells (and he tells a lot of jokes) found their way in Glen's own live routine. For instance, Roy is telling the joke about "warm hands on a cold morning (feels good when you're a cow)" and the joke about the cocktail made of milk of magnesia and wodka, called a Phillips Screwdriver (both jokes can be heard on the 1969 Glen Campbell Live album). Only Roy continues the joke with another cocktail made of prune juice and wodka. Can you guess what the name of that cocktail is...
