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...

Sharing this photo with permission by the photographer, Priscilla White. She took this beautiful photo during the sound check for Glen Campbell and his band when they performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno (as seen in "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me") on September 12, 2011. They performed "It's Your Amazing Grace" and "A Better Place".
Thank you, Priscilla!

I saw this photo on ebay, and it reminds me so much of Glen Campbell's Goodbye Tour concerts.
Hope you all enjoy it, too.

Here are some more cool pictures from the time Glen appeared on Shindig (1965).

Hi all,

I once heard Johnny Carson did Rhinestone Cowboy on The Tonight Show, riding a donkey. I believe this is a picture of that moment!
