Who killed the video?
Tom Wilson, of Junkhouse, told me Sony spent almost all the band’s royalties on the last video. When he was producing Lee Harvey Osmond, they did a more indie video of Queen Bee for peanuts – a rented suit from a second-hand clothing store and gas money.
The “Right Down the Line” video is a bit low-key from the stylistic high production videos such as the saucy “Thing Called Love” with Denis Quaid from “Nick of Time.” Raitt has done the theme of couples – straight or gay – before to better effect. She might find some young people with quirky sensibilities for her next video, just saying.
“Thing Called Love”
People paid money to buy the videos in the 1990s, before YouTube. I have the LaserDisc version of Bonnie Raitt: The Video Collection [VHS]. Those are videos classics that work better on a big screen TV than a computer monitor. I can’t find her video collection on DVD or Blu-Ray yet. It’s worth a re-issue in my mind.
