Thanks Arlw for the information! Appreciate it. Now I understand why Jerry Naylor is also on that picture with Glen and Chad!

I found this on Chad Allen's website...
"Little Lonely” was one of the hottest records ever to come out of the west coast and had broken wide-open in the San Francisco area on KYA Radio. It became pick of the week on 88 radio stations all over the Country. Over 400 Fan Clubs were working for Chad and he was invited to appear for station KOL, opening weekend at the World’s Fair.

He began appearing in all the Teenage Magazines popular at the the time. His picture appeared in “Dig”, “Teen”, “Teen Screen”‘ “16”‘ “Movie Teen Illustrated”, and many others. Chad went on to tour with his friends Dick and Dee Dee, Glen Campbell, The Lettermen, The Righteous Brothers and Ray Stevens.
There is even a picture of Chad recording "Little Lonely" in the studio!

Also from MY collection a PROMO! These are the only 2 I own!

This is a “Chad Allen” Promotional 45 on the White SMASH Label. # 1720. It is a re-issue as the original release of this recording was on Mercury Records and SMASH is a Division of Mercury Records Corporation. The tracks are “Little Lonely/Domino”. The condition of the 45 is near mint! This 45 is for Broadcast Only and Is Not For Sale. S-1720/YW-21349. American Music Inc. “Little Lonely” was written by Glen Campbell and Jerry Naylor. What makes this 45 rare and unique is they have listed this on the Promotional 45 as this: (Cambell-Jackson) so this has a miss-print of Glen’s last name. The Jackson is correct as Jerry Naylor in the 60’s went by Jerry Jackson on his writing and some recordings. He listed it as “Jackson” only. Glen also did studio work with Jerry Naylor, but nice to see both of them team up on this record for Chad Allen. No date is listed but this had to be recorded sometime in the 60’s. On this Promo 45 “Little Lonely” is the Plug Side!

DEE, From my collection and yes Glen worked with Chad Allen and guess who?

Domino/Little Lonely – This is an original released 45 by Chad Allen on the SMASH Label from 1961. A Division of Mercury Records Corp. S-1720. What makes this 45 rare is Glen Campbell is credited on the “Little Lonely” side along with Jerry Jackson. They wrote this together! It is put out by American Music, Inc. Some of the American Music Credits back in the early 60’s were Campbell-Naylor! (Jerry Naylor). This 45 is in excellent condition considering its 46 years ago that this was released. There is another Chad Allen release of these same two tracks and it is on the LAMA Label. The number is 7779-mid 1961-very rare to locate. This 45 listed is quite rare also, especially with Glen Campbell’s name credited on here for writing the track! Interesting info: The Jerry Jackson half of the songwriting credit, I am reasonably sure, is the one and only Jerry Naylor!

Arlw, do you know about a certain Chad Allen for whom Glen wrote "Little Lonely"?

Here are two old b&w pictures of Chad,Glen and others.

It feels like Glen was groomed at this point to create his image for his now growing success. It certainly served him well. His image on the album covers would have played a big part in helping them move from the shelves.
Like my self, when I walk past a mirror I see Brad Pitt, then I put my glasses on and realise my mistake. :geek:

Well
Gentle was recorded in a hurry on 17 May 1967 and these pictures are from February so... I was thinking maybe the country succes of Burning Bridges made Capitol decide some new promo pictures were in order?

I love this photo of Glen!

This is a wild guess: maybe this photo was taken for the Gentle On My Mind album cover?

This and a few other pictures on gettyimages.com are from a February 1967 fotoshoot.



So, this is what Glen looked like just before he broke through with "Gentle On My Mind", released in June 1967. I wonder for which occasion these pictures were made...

New photograph of Glen Campbell, his signature Ovation guitar, and Grammy Award trophy!

The recent online PEOPLE magazine link posted on Glen Campbell Forums (http://www.people.com/article/glen-camp ... ers-battle" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) included outstanding photos taken by professional photographer Henry Diltz.

On Morrison Hotel Gallery's website is another Diltz photo that we just love: http://www.morrisonhotelgallery.com/pho ... 732&setID=" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
The Grammy Award trophy in the foreground of this photo is likely the one Glen received for Best Country Song at the 2015 Grammys (with co-writer Julian Raymond) for "I’m Not Gonna Miss You".

Diltz is a well-known, long-time photographer in the music industry. You may not know his name, but you will recognize his artwork that has appeared on albums, in LIFE magazine, and more. CBS Sunday Morning featured Diltz earlier this year: https://youtu.be/n6OXzsUQWpg?list=PLXRW ... nirjjvSTD-" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
