The comment in quotes below was posted by charliek3100, a fan in Ireland, on a video Michel ("Cowpoke") had uploaded to the Glen Campbell Forums on YouTube Channel:
"Gentle On My Mind - Glen Campbell with Willie Nelson and band (great guitar solo)"

"Charlie's" post is a beautiful tribute to Glen Campbell as well as to Charlie's Dad who finds so much enjoyment from Glen's videos on YT. His Dad has Alzheimer's disease.
Charlie also acknowledges in the most tremendous way a dedicated, loving, and giving fan of Glen's, Philip Jones. He had learned of Philip from a post Michel had shared on the same video page that explained the origin of the "Gentle On My Mind" fan video: "A fellow Glen Campbell fan and friend of mine recorded about 20 DVDs of material over the years and he was so kind to share them with me. He sadly passed away in 2009. His name was Philip Jones from Rock Hill, SC. Now we are sharing these videos with the rest of the world, in tribute of his hero, Glen Campbell."
Fantastic singer & musician that truly had it all. I grew up on Glen Campbell from the early 70's & through all of his madness & mildness, ( I think we all have the potential for Demons whether they be Natural or Synthetic ), & therefore I only ever listened to the performer & [....] the Gutter Press. My family & friends have often remarked on how under-rated he really is on the World Stage of Country & Western. He really reminds me of George Harrison of Beatles fame...just making awesome music & getting on with it. You may watch these guy's at their Craft but it is not until a little while after that you realize you've witnessed a Real Super Star that made you feel as if you were sitting in the Scullery with a few Hot Whiskey's inside you & that Warm & Homely, Safe Feeling engulfing you.
Thank You so much for Posting this & for all of the Music you are Posting. Here in Ireland we were never shown The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour or any of his TV shows. We were so censored by the Fecking Catholic Church that even Dean Martin's Show & many of Sinatra's television appearances were never aired here either. My father is 80 years old now and he was diagnosed with that Cruel Bastard that is Alzheimer's...it is an early diagnosis but he has a form that is extremely rare & normally only affects young 40-45 year olds. Anyhow he is still a very Happy man and just Loves his Music...all kinds of music but Glen Campbell is the only musician my father ever saw here in Ireland...Oh sorry he also went to the Eagles Concert in the early 90's in Dublin...but Campbell to my Old man was something exceptional. I play these songs you have posted often to him & we remark on how many views a particular song has reached each day ( if it's a favorite of his I am tortured replaying it LOL). Anyhow I have rambled on here for long enough but Thank You Again from the bottom of my Heart for posting these American only concerts like above as we would never have seen it other wise.
I have just Subscribed to your Channel there now and I am really hoping for more of the same from your collection. Your Good Friend had fantastic taste in Music mate & if ever a person wanted an example of the inter- connectedness of everyone then just read what I have said above. I am sure Philip Jones from Rock Hill SC. never realized an Irish man would be raving about his recordings now, today in 2016!! But without his Love of Glen Campbell then Classic recordings like this one with Willie Nelson, above, would have remained an American audience only recording that my Old Man & I would never have seen.
Rest In Peace You Exceptional Human Being, Philip Jones of Rock Hill SC. & Thank You : Glen Campbell Forums for sharing this beautiful music.
