This inspiring LP is called Reaching for the Stars. Glenn is a noted motivational speaker with a home-spun Southern flavor, so why not start selling make up ala Avon or Amway? I bet it seemed like a good idea at the time. This is Glenn’s rarest record by far. You will love the primitive editing of the audience’s applause. Incredibly strange, and very entertaining.
I also found this on the interwebs: “The founder of the ”Dare to be Great” motivational program has been sentenced to seven years in prison for using an illegal pyramid scheme to bilk people out of thousands of dollars. Glenn W. Turner, 53 years old, was sentenced along with Edward G. Rechtor by Superior Court Judge Bernard J. Dougherty. Mr. Turner and Mr. Rechtor, who also received seven years, were convicted in July of 19 counts of conspiracy, fraud and promoting a pyramid scheme.”
GJG is certainly the best place to buy a ton of records. We have 470,000 of them, and have been selling 'em for 29 years. GJG is also a blog: I like lo-fi analog sound (cassettes and vinyl, please) and lo-rez/highly-pixelated/blurry photographs of (mainly) Minnesota music and its related ephemera.
A word about the audio clips posted on this blog: ABSOLUTELY NO sound editing is used. No level boosting, no de-clicking, no 'cleaning up', no sweetening, no mastering. You can do that yourself if you like- we're trying to give you the actual sound from the item provided- warts and all.
TURN IT UP if you want to!
