Well, Cowpoke, in regard to your CustomTone post below, you might have hit on something feasible: Glen might have had unknown reasons for not acknowledging the Guitar Gold album.
It might have been another Starday situation. To start with, where was Glen Campbell in late 1957, early 1958? Would it have been possible that he was in Houston, Texas during this time period?
"One winter evening in 1958, fate, chance, the stars or what have you, brought together two great artists at Van's Ballroom in Houston, Texas. Stan Capps and his group were entertaining that evening when Glen Campbell wandered in. After a few minutes, Glen Campbell, impressed by Stan Capps' piano, asked if he could sit in with the group. Stan readily agreed and they had a memorable session that evening. After the session, Stan told Glen about Customtone Studio's new stereo recording technique. The following day Stan and Glen got together at the studio so Glen could hear himself for the first time in stereo.
The best music in the world occurs when musicians play just for themselves. That's what happened that day. Each of these two artists admiring the other yet striving to out perform the other creates a study in sound that is incomparable.
The results from this once in a lifetime live session have been captured for you in this unique collector's album."
"This is a truly great recording," declares Stan, "because a session is the final test of talent, musicianship, and teamwork. Not often do the artists in a session approach the blending and fusing necessary to create a harmonic diamond. In this session I feel that we have achieved less than a diamond, but certainly we have captured here the greatest display of Glen's talent on the guitar."
"This is Glen's Greatest Record" says Dick Bills, Performer and impresario for 35 years in the music and entertainment field. "The musicianship and showmanship recorded in this album is truly great. To me Glen's music is part of Classical Americana; it's strong and forceful; it's light and bouncy; it carries a powerful punch, and yet it flows smoothly and freely like riding the crest of a wave. 'Guitar' will live on to be enjoyed by those who are fortunate enough to devote part of their time to just listening."
