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!

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!

Thanks Arlw. Do you know of any other Roy Clark records Glen played on? One thing I do know is that Roy played banjo on Glen's The Astounding 12 String Guitar.

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... :)
