1984 Gimme Good Lovin’ (from the Walking the Razor’s Edge album)

We were on tour with Heart on the U.S. east coast when word came down from “The Tower” (Capitol Record’s headquarters in L.A.) that we were going to be filming our second video from the Walking the Razor’s Edge album in Hollywood at Francis Ford Coppola’s old studio.  The vid was for the old Crazy Elephant song “Gimme Good Lovin'”  There were two versions shot for this:  One with the girls topless, the other with their tops on. The X rated version was for the newly formed PLAYBOY channel.   There were girls from Penthouse, Playboy, The Solid Gold Dancers, and Hustler.  There was also Tracey Lords, the porn queen.  We didn’t audition any of these girls; all we did was show up for the shoot and they were there.  There were so many beautiful naked women that Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, and Rip Taylor, who were all filming “Pryor’s Place” next door came over to watch us film.  Robin Williams actually did a skit for me which I filmed with my Super 8 sound camera.
