    Glen Campbell with John Hartford

    Looks like these were pre-bowler-hat days for young John.

    Interestingly, it was not John but his friend, Doug Dillard, that recorded the banjo on the recorded version. If you are not familiar with the song, it was written by John Hartford.

    Can never have enough Glen Campbell! Those were the days, two singers, two instruments, a couple of microphones. No big "production" or computer-generated "music".

    Thanks for the link!

    John Hartford claimed that Gentle On My Mind made it possible for him to live his life as he chose. One song, probably one of the most-covered songs ever.

    Another example of times gone by - people had to PAY for the song if they wanted it!

    Here's John playing a Guild, perhaps a maple F50?

    As a teen in the 70s Aereo-Plain was one of my most played records.
