Hi, karina! Welcome to Glen Campbell Forums, and thank you for your great question.

I am going to "let Glen" answer your question directly -- from his 1994 autobiography titled Rhinestone Cowboy (written with Tom Carter).

Glen worked for American Music Publishing in Los Angeles in 1961, writing and demo-ing songs pitched to other artists to record. Jimmy Bowen was also one of the staff writers at that same time. "Turn Around, Look at Me" was Glen's first hit song for AMP. Glen wrote about it in his bio:

So, yes, Glen was co-songwriter, did not receive credit as co-writer, and apparently did not receive his rightful share of the song's royalties (as evidenced by his omission as co-writer in the BMI database that you discovered).

In another chapter in his autobio, Glen briefly writes again about TALAM and is more direct about the royalties issue and his feelings about it:

I have watched a few interviews with Glen Campbell in which he touched on this same topic but he never disclosed Capehart's name directly.

Perhaps another member on the Forums here will know how it came to be that the single released in Japan credits both Glen and Capehart?

Oddly, Jimmy Bowen fully credits Capehart for writing the song in his 1997 book titled Rough Mix!

Jerry Capehart died from brain cancer in June 1998, four years after the publication of Glen's autobiography.

I would like to know if in fact Glen Campbell co wrote Turn Around Look At me with Jerry Capehart. The US version just gives Capehart the writing credit..wheras Japense 45s show Capehart-Campbell as co writers. BMI also lists ONLY Capehart with writing credit.

Hi again M. Giddings!

As I mentioned below to you, there are a few full episodes of the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour on the "Historic Films" website, currently available to watch for free.
We first posted the link to one of these episodes on the forums here:

When you go to the Historic Films webpage and click on the black arrow to start the program, you'll find that it takes a good 30 seconds to start the film. This episode is from March 5, 1969, with Glen Campbell, Johnny Hartford, Bobby Goldsboro, Joe South, Joey Bishop, and Judy Carne. It's complete with the commercials, too!

Welcome to Glen Campbell Forums, M. Giddings!
Your question is a great one.
Would you believe that only the following Glen Campbell Goodtime Hours have been officially released?

(1) 1990 - The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour with Special Guest Stars: John Wayne, Tim Conway, Carol Burnett, Three Dog Night contains an episode of The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. This video was released in 1990 as part of The Glen Campbell Video Collection. It is out of production but once in a while it shows up on ebay and other places, some copies are pricey, some not.

(2) 1996 - Christmas with Glen Campbell contains various Christmas songs and skits from The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. This release on VHS was not a complete episode. It was only sold at Glen’s Branson theatre and by mail order. It's out of production but shows up on ebay from time to time.

(3) 2007 - Good Times Again contains a selection of solo performances and duets by Glen Campbell taken from The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. Again, not a complete episode. It can still be bought new on online stores such as amazon for under $24.00. Personally, I really like this program. It was shown in part on public television last summer.

(4) 2012 - Glen Campbell American Treasure box set with 3 music CDs and one DVD that features only parts of--not complete episodes of--The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. This set is out of production, too. The DVD of clips is excellent quality.

(5) 2015 - The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour: Christmas Specials DVD with two complete Goodtime Hour Christmas shows (There have been Glen Campbell Music Show releases, but this show is, of course, a different show hosted by Glen.) The quality is great!

(6) 2016 - The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour Country Special DVD. This new one is being released this week, April 29th! Amazon has it for sure, maybe other online stores?

You are right about "little pieces here & there" because only the above shows were officially released. Anything else you find is bootleg. Also fans have kindly shared some clips on YouTube.

We found some episodes on a website Historic Films...I will post the link here for you shortly.

Cowpoke,
I think we were blessed that Glen came to the UK on a regular basis. I am not sure a great deal of American artists did tours or specials like Glen. Glen loved doing concerts in Europe and once said he found the audiences were very appreciative of his shows. Of course Glen, always gave a great show!

In 1984, Glen was still touring in Europe as well!
