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.

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 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.
