Re: New DVD / CD Releases

I didn't mean to interupt the thread the Glen-Airs Ceneco Single I Wonder b/w You, You, You went to the highest bid today, $130.00, a good example, I would be happy owning a licensed digital copy on a compilation CD.

I do love, Jan & Dean.

I got to stand in line after an outdoor show for a signing, they had a fold out table for Jan, a little boy was inn front of me, Jan leaned over and sang for him, softly, just for him, I will never forget that.

I got the small paisly blue bath towel Jan wiped his face all the through the show, it smelled like his cologne for a good ten years! Until I had little boys of my own.

My favorite Gllen Campbell concert is from the Cornwall Coliseum in the UK, it is on a two CD package, originally it was on 2 Lp's, that's a lot of getting up and turning over the next side, and so it is nice to be able to sit and listen to the whole show all the way though.

The first disc of the two CD set is a compilation with two very rare songs one by, Jimmy Webb, and the other Mickey Newbury I believe.

The song by Jimmy Webb sounds tailor fit for what I would describe the ultimate Frank Sinatra ballad, a lot of living and feeling packed into the words and music, "Didn't We".

I think it may have been first picked up by Richard Harris, maybe as a present for paying Jimmy Webb and Hal Blaine too fly to England and cut a record with him, that's just my spin and what do I know, I did read that Hal Blaine was very thanfful that he got to leave all the dates back in L.A. and vacation awhile.

A working man's vacation, I guess!

And there are no throw away's in the Mickey Newbury canon, at one time he was considered Nashville's main resident songwriter, my heart goes out to him and his legacy.

Thank you, I'm getting emotional.

There's a compilation for you~

Goodnight, everybody, sweet dreams*

Dee, The Ember album was released in 1968. NR 5042.It has the same cover as Hey Little One but the tracks are different. Ember tended to do this with the UK releases. I guess it was something to do with the single releases at the time.
Oh Happy Day was released as The Glen Campbell album and also had different play list.

My pleasure, Karina! Thanks again for posting your question here. I feel Glen would appreciate the fact that we are posting about this song and its history on his own forums, keeping the story alive, don't you?

Last night, I was searching on our forums and couldn't find a related post -- but tonight I found it. This link will take you directly to a post about another alleged songwriting theft by Jerry Capehart. This one involved Eddie Cochran. In this same post, there is a link to an interview in print with Glen -- and, although he doesn't reveal Capehart's name, he again confirms that he co-wrote Turn Around, Look at Me. Here is the link to this post:
http://www.glencampbellforums.com/viewt ... hran#p3970" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, The Classic Bands interview is a great read, too.

Mike, when was the Ember album released? At around the same time as "Hey Little One"? Isn't it odd that there is this songwriters' discrepancy between the two Capitol / EMI albums?
Ha! Thanks for sharing the joke Glen made about how old he was when he wrote TALAM! And wasn't it gracious of Glen to refer to Capehart as a "friend"?

Karina, I feel you hit the nail on the head with your point about Glen being young and naive at the time he worked for American Music Publishing, perhaps an easy target by someone else who was more interested in boosting his own career and finances. I hadn't realized Glen was only 24 when he wrote TALAM. Good for you for doing the research and gathering your facts.

Now I wish we could find out who or what inspired Glen to write this song of unrequited love at such a young age?

Dee :)

Just to chip in on this one. I have Glen's Hey Little One album which credits both Glen and Jerry and I have an Ember UK released album called Tun around look at me, which only credits Jerry. Glen sang Turn around look at me at the Royal Festival Hall London in 1977 and as it started he made the joke that he wrote the song with a friend in 1961 "I was 5 at the time". He tells the audience. There is no doubt Glen did in fact have a big part in the writing of this song. As we also know this was Jimmy Webb's first record he ever purchased.

Dee,

Many thanks for your efforts. A "music historian" disputed this fact with me , citing BMI. I did extensive research on this because I realized Glen's youth at time and the way people take advantage of others in both music industry and other venues, especially when young and naive as Glen was I believe just 24, and one of 12 children of a sharecropper. I think the kind of good soul he was, he just wanted to just sing the music and play, both of which he did superbly, and thus used on so many sessions for his great talent. I saw "Ill be Me" and cried..he is an amazing man and will always be remembered.

Again your efforts are truly appreciated.

Best
Karina

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.
