A SUNDAY FUNNY

Hmmm....perhaps Glen Campbell's hair style influenced ... Kris Kringle's?
Kris Kringle starred in "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town", a 1970 Christmas stop motion animated television special.
It was broadcast at the same time "The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour" was showing on television sets world-wide (including the North Pole)!
What do you think? :)

night. Here comes Glen In the room where we were and we both got kisses on the mouth not just a peck on the cheek. I could have enjoyed it more if I had of known it was coming. But how many fans have gotten a kiss from Glen Campbell :D :D

I Have never But I wish I had. He is a great man. I am sad to know he is going through such an ugly diseases. My prayers are with him always.

...which by a strange coincidence is also the name of a song that Glen's organ/harmonica player Steve Hardin wrote and sang on "Airplay", an album by hard rock band Point Blank in 1979... :)
Great job on scoring that red vinyl single Rob!

To bring some color into my life, add some spice or because of all the years I felt that I could not afford color vinyl, I purchased the Japanese red color vinyl pressing of Bobby Gentry Glen Campbell All I Have To Do Is Dream 45 Single w/ picture sleeve on e-bay tonight for 20 dollars, a purchase that I will have to display and allow to catch the light!

Stay true to your roots~

Love,
Rob

I really do love the Everest and World Pacific folk labels, they are a first class operation, as e-bay attests, some of the best gems and memorabilia of the early to mid sixties. At an affordable price, the vinyl is very heavy and worth its' weight in gold, the wealth of talent and line up never to be reproduced again, a good record of the times when Hollywood was young beautiful and lean and the new jet set creeping in. Which leads us to...

The Big Bad Rock Guitar Of Glen Campbell LP is Glen Campbell's "Austin Powers" album... YEAH, BABY!

Thank you! My Ninja stealth warrior. I really wanted the Coming Home Japanese 45 Single picture sleeve import for a long time, as I have mentioned before I have the Japanese LP and now I will finally be able to lay the two side by side.

Glen sure is smiling in the picture on the front cover~ Big cigar* Yeah....

Thanks, Rob, I am glad you enjoyed the Big Bad Rock guitar post below.

I believe the B-side of the Japan-only release of "Coming Home" is "It's a Sin When You Love Somebody" (ECR10737).

Congrats on this special single coming home to you!

Thank you, Dee,

I am very excited about your last post and pictures, it is a little ironic, the Frank Sinatra illustrated album cover can be found at just about every second hand store and The Big Bad Rock Guitar of Glen Campbell, is ultra-rare.

It's been a good year and a half buying and collecting Glen Campbell albums to round off my collection, I've been pretty lucky I only had to buy two MP3 downloads because the vinyl version had dropped off the planet,

But I managed to phase out one of the burned CD's and I have been listening a lot to the official compact disc reissue of It's A Matter Of Time, a very mystical album and so it's nice to hold and read the liner notes for the songwriter and musician credits.

Big Bad Rock is my other MP3 store purchase, obviously there was a window when I saw it on e-bay the other week for 45 dollars, I'm glad that someone managed to pick it up.

The update is I manage to purchase this morning the Japanese 45 Single for Coming Home, another item I let go too long when I ought to have snatched it up, this one was for only 10 dollars total, last time I think it was going for over 30.

Yes, I am so close to owning all the main albums when I manage to round off my collection with Big Bad Rock, I will make it my mission this summer. (positive visualization)*

There is a very cute orange vinyl from Taiwan on ebay of New Place In The Sun, for around 15 dollars, I will start collecting 45 Single picture sleeves sometime down the road.

I had been a huge fan of Glen's since early third grade but when I purchased New Place in The Sun the following summer it was all hero worship after that, it was the cover, you have to give the old Pickwick reissues credit, their Glen Campbell album covers and record slicks are very visual, they must've known down the road, they would stand as works of art!

Thank you, again, Dee.... Oh, can you please let me know what is on Side B of the Japanese 45 Single Coming.

Cheers~
Love,
Rob
