"Guitar Talk"
This photo was taken of a fan with Glen Campbell in the 1980s. Interesting guitar. Can any members identify it as one of Glen's guitars? (He may have been trying out the fan's guitar?)

Could this young fan have been you at Christmas in 1969, happily holding up her new Wichita Lineman with Glen Campbell record?

Mike,
I think I'll take the 42 years and run!!! Yea, My collection was very small growing up as I was into school activities and just didn't have the $ @ that time but hearing Glen as a kid and watching him on TV was just awesome and to be honest, hearing his music kind of molded that generation, in my opinion...Got married in 1974, and soon after, I started collecting more material on Glen , but when RHINESTONE COWBOY came out, that did it!! And, to this day, I wouldn't trade anything! My cell phone has RC!!! Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Valentines Day to you and everyone on this forum.

Sorry arlw, my mistake, it would be more like 1975 when you became a fan. You beat me by 2 years.
I meant to say it was great back then in the seventies, Glen was played virtually every day on the radio and the sun was always shining even at night. :D

Hi arlw,
You say 42 years when you started collecting, I assume that means you became a fan in 1967 or so. Wow, you have seen Glen's star rise from his first hits. Was it Gentle on my mind that hooked you, or something else ?
If you collected news items etc that would have been a big task.
I became a fan in 1977, I was 5 at the time, as Glen once joked. I bought a music for pleasure album called By the time I get to Phoenix. I didn't have a lot of money so I wanted to buy music which I felt I would enjoy listening to several times. I didn't know the songs or Glen at that time but I liked the album cover and bought it for that reason alone. When I heard the title track, the intro and then glen's voice I got goose bumps. After that I spent every penny on Glen's back catalogue
and kept every item of news I found in the papers. Later I started to record Glen's TV appearances on various chat and variety shows. I have every album Glen has released except for those very early releases before Capitol.
The thing is arlw, it's the joy of it all. Glen and Jimmy have given me years of pleasure and even inspired me to write songs and play the guitar. They truly are inspirational entertainers, and long may they continue to fill your life with happiness.
Mike

Thanks Mike--yea only 42 plus years!! When I started, I did it all by hand and went to bookstores/libraries and wrote things down pertaining to Glen and what he recorded/dates/times. Very tedious work but the outcome is remarkable! Thank God for computers and all the great gadgets that are now available! Being that our home is 2 story--Glen has taken over the game room closet as I literally ran out of room downstairs. Yes, I have lots of Glen and Debby and bookshelves for all my collected pieces, but I also am blessed with 4 grandkids and the oldest is in high school! So, if that gives my age away, so be it. But, I have family pictures too so Glen blended right in! I think we all have something to be thankful for-appreciate your kindness.

A million thanks to Arlw for sharing a new and rare addition to her WALL OF GLEN at home: a rare Rhinestone Cowboy Japanese Picture Sleeve with OBI! This album now "stands tall on the wall" with other Rhinestone Cowboy-related memorabilia/collectibles! (Love the framed 1994 Limited Edition "Rhinestone Cowboy" ceramic plate designed by Nate Giorgio for The Bradford Exchange! ~Dee)

I second that emotion. It's the only album that is still not available in some digital form...

The Japanese imports are normally excellent quality. I picked up "Glen sings America" years ago and I listened to it loads. Heavy duty vinyl as well. Couldn't understand why it was called "Glen sings America" though, as a number of the tracks were very English. Greensleeves etc.
It was in fact a repackaged album from the Artistry of Glen Campbell special limited edition double album, but only contained the vocal tracks. I wish that was re-released on remastered CD
