Click to buy at Amazon.com

Time Life presents "Glen Campbell's Good Times Again", featuring classic performances from TV’s "The Glen Campbell Good Time Hour", including Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Cher, Linda Ronstadt, Rick Nelson and others.

"The Good Time Hour", which ran on CBS from January 1969 to June 1972, innocently knocked down the stylistic walls between pop, country and R&B. "Good Times Again" demonstrates Campbell’s wide musical scope, which allowed him and his guests to team up and effectively cross stylistic boundaries. He performed with some of the era’s biggest stars on their own hits as well as on songs that have gone on to become cultural signposts.

Campbell is paired, for example, with Rick Nelson on the Cajun-flavored “Louisiana Man,” with Bobbie Gentry on the pop ballad “Let It Be Me,” and with Johnny Cash on the country trademark “Folsom Prison Blues.” The DVD also features two of Bob Dylan’s iconoclastic tunes, “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” performed with Anne Murray, and “All I Really Want To Do,” sung with Cher.

"Good Times Again" also showcases Campbell’s prowess as a guitar player and vocalist on his own hits, including “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “True Grit” and “Gentle On My Mind,” many of them with banjo/guitar wizard John Hartford at his side.

Produced by High Five Entertainment, the DVD features Campbell’s intimate commentary on each of the performances, plus a bonus interview recorded in May 2007 at the Moon River Theater in Branson, MO, in which Campbell reflects on the TV show and his multi-faceted career.

Shot at Television City in Hollywood, "The Goodtime Hour" showcased Campbell’s multiple talents and likable personality. It became a showplace for some of the top country, rock, R&B and pop artists. The show also helped to cement his position as an entertainer, eventually bringing him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame and numerous other honors.
