I would love to have a video collection.  My favorite video they ever did was for One in a Million and I never got to tape it.

The "One In a Million" video was a classic.  If I remember right, Jimmy was wearing a sports jacket!?  It was a definite departure from any of their other videos.

To be honest, I don't even remember seeing Jimmy in that video, or any of the other band members for that matter.  With a million delectable babes hovering around...... Roll Eyes

A video compliation would be great, although the other projects are a close second.  I also have a DVD burner (just built a new computer at christmas time).  I have been messing around with capturing video and think I have that down alright.  Still need to do the DVD authoring but will figure it out.  I am willing to help out in any way I can as well.  I have a few tapes from the 80s of which I need to transfer (pending they are still viewable).  I can't remember if I have anything with the romantics on it but you never know.  I also have a freind that has several tapes she recorded in the 80s.  I will see if I can borrow them and browse what is on them.   8)

I want to think that white leather was worn after the In Heat tour and before the Rhythm Romance tour.  As I remember it, Jimmy was still in the group when I saw the Romantics in white leather in a concert in Seattle.  But, I also think the Romantics wore white leather in their video for Rhythm Romance, when David Petratos drummed for the group.  My memory is a bit foggy on these points, though.

Oldfriend, I have to concur with the rest on placing the video VHS or DVD at the top of the list ... although hearing some of the 61/49 outtakes, for me, is the closest second-place imaginable. (I live with a never-ending craving for new songs from the Romantics.) Oldfriend, please tell me you have the video for "Test of Time" ... it's the only one I don't have a copy of. Has anyone here not seen the three promotional videos they did for National Breakout? If you haven't, you are in for a real treat. I absolutely LOVE the video treatment of "Forever Yours." It's very subtle, tongue-in-cheek melodrama -- sincere, yet you can tell the guys weren't taking themselves too seriously. Rather, just enjoying the ride. There's nothing like seeing your favorite band having that much fun ...

Kevin, the cool thing is that even now, when you go to see them in concert, you know that they play because the like it, not because it's "a job"... Smiley  May the guys never grow tired of performing!!!

Also, the white leather I remember was indeed from the Rhythm Romance tour, and it was actually white snakeskin. I saw the band several times on this tour and actually got to see one of those things up close. ... Also, I have a sad video story to relate as well -- in two parts. When MTV originally aired the live concert shorts from the Romantics along with Huey Lewis and (I believe) Heart in 1984, my family didn't have a VCR. So I bought a tape and asked my buddy Mike to record it for me; he had to work, so he set up the timer. While Mike was at work, however, his roommate came home and decided to watch porn -- so he kicked my tape out and I didn't get the show. Six months or so later, I asked my parents for a VCR for Christmas. About three weeks prior, MTV aired the concert(s) again, so I asked my parents if I could get the VCR out early and tape it. I begged. I pleaded. They refused. Thankfully, some 15 years later, someone on our previous message board copied them for me. Was that you, Linda? Smiley

It is going to take me a while to compile all of my Romantics video. It is my fault that I don't have my rock and roll video stuff stored in some orderly fashion. I have an idea where most of the stuff is, but I am going to have to look through hundreds of tapes to find it all. It took me months to get the "Meet The Romantics" thing together. This kind of stuff is just really time consuming but I will get it together down the road.
