Hey, Rob, thanks for your post!
Perhaps this info about The Legacy box set will make you feel better:
There are two of these box sets currently listed on ebay.com/US. One is "Brand New" and selling for $124.88.
The second one is pre-used in "good condition, minor wear with good spine and edging; CDs have light scratching." It is selling for $69.95.
For a real McCoy at around $73. for an unopened box set, you will have obtained a good deal (even if you add return shipping to it, I am guessing).
In answer to your question, I also have an autographed edition of Glen Campbell Live With The South Dakota Symphony. Glen's autograph is in silver ink on the disc, signed in the blue background, not on the guitar.
I bought it signed, GC didn't sign it in person for me, but it looks like his signature. I would love to know if PBS sold these discs signed (as a thank you gift for donating to PBS) or if Glen signed these CDs in person for concertgoers. Maybe the latter because I seem to remember seeing one of these albums listed on ebay with both Glen and Debby's autographs.
I really admire you for setting a goal to complete your GC album collection and meeting it -- having collected so many albums in such a short time without going to the poor house! lol I am amazed that you were able to find some of these albums within a short time because some recordings are more difficult to find now. So, kudos to you and happy listening! You have achieved your "record collector's dream"!
I agree w/ you: the "I'll Be Me" OST is a cause for celebration. I want to write a review of it for the forums, but I don't think that I can do it justice. BTW, if you don't have the vinyl LP released on April 21st, it is worth the investment for a collector and a fan, I believe. A GC friend rates it highly in terms of quality; the pressing being outstanding. The gatefold album is like something from the past that you rarely see these days.
Thank you for your great reviews on amazon.com of RC40 and Glen Campbell American Treasure Set on the Surfdog label. This box set is pricey, but, it IS a treasure, especially the rare digital remasters that you mentioned AND the DVD. I trust you'll enjoy this set and that the clips from the Goodtime Hour will bring back happy memories for you and your family!
If you are interested, let me know which Christmas albums you are seeking. "That Christmas Feeling" vinyl LP was reissued on CD as "Icon Christmas". I have an extra copy of this Icon album on CD that needs a good home.
Rob, thank you for sharing your enthusiasm with us about collecting Glen's albums and also your advice: "Dream big, love large, help comes in all kinds of shape of forms." I think I understand what you mean by help comes from all kinds of shape of forms. Glen Campbell Fans are The Best and some are able to be very generous by sharing information and/or helping one to build a collection by gifting records. And now you are paying it forward to other fans and me -- by sharing your great list of rare singles on 45s as well as your "Champeen" posts! :0
You have a great week, too!
