VIDEO: Russell Morris - The Real Thing (1969)

Ok, for all the Australians out there,

This is an old classic that has somewhat defined our culture, even up to the present day. Some real psychedelic stuff from 1969. Russell Morris' promo-video for the hit single 'The Real Thing', written by Johnny Young and produced by Ian 'Molly' Meldrum.

Who remembers this one?

  1. Videos were different in those days, a classic piece though, was only a wee kid then.

    1. John,

      You're right. They were a showcase of the artist themselves rather than a corresponding addition to the overall entertainment 'package'. Thanks for your comment.
