Yes it is excellent Dee! I watch an oldie yt channel often called smurftools and he has video and audio editied. Good example would be the song "Precious and Few" ... Other channels it's not nearly as clear.

Great ear, Dee. It seems Glen song doctored just about every song he ever sang. Very interesting topic!

Here ya go, Randy! I know you'll like this better quality version of Glen singing with his brother, Shorty.
(From the When the Cowboy Sings channel on YT, which offers lots of great classic country music, doesn't it?)

This Cowboy channel also uploaded Marty Robbins' lyrics to post in the video description.
I was surprised at how much Glen Campbell (I assume) "song doctored" the Robbins' lyrics and for the better (imho).
For example, Glen must have changed "shack" to "home" and "whip me" to "scold me". I posted the lyrics here as Glen and Shorty sing the lines in this performance. :)



The childhood memories I treasure the most I suppose
Were the Saturday afternoons spent at the town picture show
I work all day long in the fields but at night I would dream
That I would see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen

Saturday mornings I'd walk 5 miles or more
And Twelve o'clock noon found me first one in line at the door
I'd worked all week long but today I fulfill my dreams
And I'd see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen.

The man in the white cowboy hat is a hero to me
He was and he is now, and I guess he always will be
Time takes away many things but it can't take a dream
And I see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen.

(guitar solo)

Oft as a child from our home in the country I'd roam
And my daddy would scold me 'cause I'd never be around home
Ah but mom understood me cause she'd always smile when I'd say,
Gene Autry and I had been rounding up outlaws all day

The man in the white cowboy hat is a hero to me
He was then, he is now, and I guess he always will be
Time takes away many things but it can't take a dream
And I see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen

And I see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen.

-by Marty Robbins (as sung by Glen Campbell and Shorty Campbell)

For those that have comcast/xfinity like me, you can now stream you tube on your tv by using your voice feature on your remote e.g. "witchita lineman on you tube"... Just got the notification of this today in the mail and it works perfect.

Always "on you tube" at the end.

Not sure if you have to have internet with them for this to work or not , but I have it also.

Cool feature!

It is 1991 and Glen Campbell discusses songs written by Jimmy Webb with Sir Paul Holmes on NZ On Screen in New Zealand. "Good material is like a Rolls-Royce," Glen explains.

I had posted these videos on facebook last month, but not here. Sorry!
Glen's oldies never sounded so good!
All on the YT channel SirBasildeBrush.
Enjoy!











Not Glen, but his Uncle Boo's instrumental recording is featured here.
(Gene Boo Campbell does not appear in this vid):





Not Glen, but his friend and sometimes co-songwriter Jerry Fuller:





Not Glen. Rick Nelson singing a song composed by Jerry Fuller!





Not Glen, just a personal favorite of mine. ;)
(Hmmm....he could be guitaring on this 1962 single by The Matadors?)

Well maybe that but also because Glen's career was formed in LA. He recorded all of his albums there. Only in 1981 did he move to Phoenix and from 1983 on he started recording in Nashville (the Letter to Home album was the first one recorded in Nashville). So that has something to do with it too I guess.
Good point, Cowpoke. I had forgotten about the great divide between West Coast Country and East Coast Country!

BTW, this show took place in the 1990s, I believe. Glen's debut appearance on the Opry stage was not until November 1983. Was this late debut because Glen had not been considered a "country" singer?

Oh yes no doubt excellent video. Glen was such a pro. Always brought the A game. Loved the little silly humor joke about Phoenix being hip. Countless times he delivered those type of jokes at the shows I went to and ev1 loved them. Other people try something like that and it probably won't work.

And watched the video of Glen's gravesite. Nice to see all the kindness of Steve and the Campbell's to allow folks to come and give their respects to the Great Glen Campbell.

Thanks for the uploads Dee!
