This track by Hollis P. Monroe is one of my all-time favourites and I'm proud to own a copy of the limited edition 12" vinyl. When Etta James passed in late January 2012, I wanted to make an unofficial tribute video to celebrate her music and life. Hollis' track was a perfect way to say thank you and goodbye.

The story that I'm telling with this music video is of love lost, regret and ultimately saying goodbye. The original footage was cut from the feature film, The Brother from Another Planet (1984). A dash of effects and Technicolor film colour correction were added to put a stylized finish on the look. Enjoy!
