This is a live performance of the song 'Love in the Morning' from Archie's 1993 album Jamu Dreaming. The excerpt comes from actuality footage Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter: Cape York, 1997.

It is unfortunate that the quality of the recording is not the best. For most of the clip the camera frames Ruby rather than Archie who is providing the lead vocal. However it is a delight to watch Ruby's enthusiasm. The smile on her face beautifully exemplifies the joy they derived from  performing together. If the vision is not of a high standard, the audio is at least spot on. But as actuality footage, not shot by a professional, it still provides an interesting glimpse into the live performance of two accomplished musicians.
