"This is a fabulous hour well spent enjoying some terrific songs and performances and Glen (in current day interviews) intros many of the songs.
The other reviewer moaned about what ISN'T on this DVD....but frankly..for $15 I feel I got a LOT more than my monies worth and I will watch this over and over....goodness. Glen could sure play guitar and his guests? The Ricky Nelson clip alone is wonderful...and that leaves Ray Charles, Willie Nelson , Roger Miller, Ann Murray, Cher, Linda Ronstadt, The Smothers Brothers, BJ Thomas, Johnny Cash and lets not forget the late great writer of "Gentle On My Mind" John Hartford....doesn't sound like much to complain about...and I'm not....this is wonderful."

"I'm happy this DVD is SHORT - only great music is on it. All of the fluff from the show has been edited out. What you get is Glen Campbell at his early best and some of the most memorable duets from his old CBS show.
The highlight for me was the young Anne Murray, who is simply perfect in her duet. Her voice soars and she and Glen are really insync. Others I liked best were Ray Charles, Linda Ronstadt and Bobbie Gentry. Even Cher comes off well believe it or not.
If there are more of these Glen Campbell DVDs - please not the whole program from start to finish, only the music. I could also do without Campbell's commentary. Can't viewers be trusted to watch a program without an explanation?
Wonderful highlights from the guy who is still singing!

"A few months ago Glen Campbell released a fabulous new CD (Meet Glen Campbell) with current rock songs done "the Glen way". (See my review elsewhere on Amazon).
Now the folks at Time-Life have released a single DVD of performances from Campbell's 1960s TV show. What a delightful hour! (It apparently also aired in public TV stations during the year but never appeared in my local market.).
Similar to the great 2-DVD set which Sony released of the "Best of the Johnny Cash TV Show", this set focuses on duets which Campbell did during the show's run. There's Glen and Roger Miller, Glen and a very young Linda Ronstadt, and, yes, Glen and Johnny Cash! The duet with Cher is priceless (on an old Sonny & Cher version of Bob Dylan's "All I Really Wanna Do". And there is very little available footage of Willie Nelson with his short hair (and jacket and tie!).
New video of Glen introducing each performance is a great idea and, as a bonus, there is a 15-minute interview with him (where he has his guitar handy to demonstrate a few of the answers he gives). The 72-year-old Campbell still looks great!
The Good Times Hour was produced by Tom Smothers (of the Smothers Brothers) and he give the show an edge in the comedy writing and direction.
It's a shame there is only an hour of material here. There must be so much more in the Campbell-owned archive. We can only hope for a Volume 2 (and 3? And 4?). The quality of the print is great too!
If you own the Cash TV show DVD, grab this one to put next to it on your DVD shelf.

"What memories The Goodtime Hour brought back. Who do we write to to get all the shows released on DVD? I am reliving my younger years. Glen is such a talented performer and I remember some of the funny comedy skits with the guest stars. I was not disappointed with the DVD. I even remember the cute guy, Larry McNeely, who sat next to Glen on the bench when Glen sang all of his hits. Glen's present day comments show that he is just a down to earth guy and has not let stardom go to his head. Calling B.J. Thomas a turkey for his song beating "True Grit" at the Oscars. I personally thought the lyrics in "True Grit" made more sense than "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head".
All fans of "The Goodtime Hour" need to unite and have Glen make sure all of his "Goodtime Hour" shows are released. I will be waiting for more of his shows!!!"
