    Nice clip – looks like early 1980s vintage. Not his best single but still very very good

    Gene may actually be the last of the breed of those singers whose reputation was made on their “excellence of execution” . He was and still is a great singer

      Late 80s probably – wasn’t this the the title track of his 1989 comeback album on Warner Bros?

        you are correct

        Twenty-five years later Gene is still going strong – his new album drops in June and it’s a dandy

        I seem to recall that that was when he said he was putting his career in the hands of Lib Hatcher.
        Did somebody say “train wreck”?
