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

The quality of the audio and vision are unfortunately not the best, but the clips has the charm of an unpolished home movie. It provides an interesting glimpse of a live performance of two accomplished musicians.

For most of the clip the camera frames Ruby, rather than Archie who is providing the lead vocal. It is a delight to watch her enthusiasm and the smile on her face beautifully exemplifies the joy they derived from performing together.
