Finally a Bobbie video on iTunes!
It's about time there was a Bobbie Gentry video on iTunes, and this does not disappoint. Although this is an abbreviated version of the song, it's really interesting and unique. This obviously is not from a typical episode of Ed Sullivan but rather one of the special episodes in 1970 where they entertained Vietnam vets at military hospitals. Bobbie sings great and looks great doing it. Classic!
love this , its about time ...tired of tribute bands. i grew up w her and other folk rock singers durring an unbelievable time for our country . the music gives me an insight to my parents ...the era in music (a small part) and why I like the music I like
A glimpse into the Vietnam era
A unique performance of the song. Anyone who remembers this era will find it fascinating. Can't take my eyes off of a young Bobbie Gentry. Wish it had some shots of Ed Sullivan.
