it was just used on the chart rundown or with the credits?
does seem weird not repeating the live clip.
also on the bww site it says disc for some totp like 'sorrow' even though
there is/was a video made for that. maybe it wasnt ready then.
also for 'fame' & rebel rebel' they used pans people, both wiped but on flick colbys tape. 1 of pans is also on the replacement 'john im only dancing' gasworks video which isnt wiped & was used instead of the orig vid which was banned till years later.
i guess 'the laughing gnome' vid from 73 is gone too? cant see any info about that.
& there doesnt seem to be any early bits from foreign archives like zdf or avro
apart from 'rebel rebel' on toppop in 74.
Are you thinking of the Sorrow performance in the white suit singing to Amanda Lear Paul? Thats from the NBC Midnight Special so not nessercarily available to the beeb at the time, unsure if it'd had actually aired in the States by then, think it was close.
Would like to see that John I'm Only Dancing, I've visions of those Chopper books in my head.
Regards the Laughing Gnome I'd thought whilst browsing on here in the past I've seen it mentioned that the episode existed in private hands or something? But mabbe I've got that confused with the John I'm Only Dancing one?
I remember the Laughing Gnome promo, pretty similar to the kind of thing you'd see on that early 80's DLT video show where they made cheap weirdy videos for 50's and 60's hits acting out the lyrics etc. Dare say it'd be pretty spooky looking now actually.
Its a mystery why no repeat JG performance. Did that happen much?
