How do you spell Glen Campbell's name?
Glen's name seems to be an easy one to spell, right? G-L-E-N C-A-M-P-B-E-L-L

Glen's name appears twice in the report: first spelled as "Glen" and then as "Glenn": [Click once on each image below to enlarge viewing window.]
At times, I believe that Glen may have preferred using "Glenn" (as a stage name?) because this double N spelling was not unusual to see in ads for his appearances in the early days of his career.
In this 1965 ad, Capitol Records spelled Glen's name with two "N's":

Glen Campbell's first single was "Turn Around, Look at Me" released in 1961.

, is this label rare or did a lot of these labels get out before the error was discovered?
This is a double CD set produced and distributed in 2008 with a different take on "Campbell":
