Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In
24 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Screen goddess Raquel Welch, famed for ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. in which she made bikini history... in an April 1970 TV special. If this is not a Collector's Item, I don't know what is.

No, I haven't seen RAQUEL! But right after submitting this review, I'm gonna start an initiative to find it on my seller site.

{note: found it after frantic search, it was hidden away, but yeah, planning to go for this next week!}

Hopefully I can one day update this. In the meantime, this counts as a review for one particular segment, the above- mentioned song(s).

When doing research on MYRA BRECKINRIDGE some time last year, I came across a download of this very old music video, "Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In" and, yes, like one of the other reviewers called it, "trippy" and really, a time capsule for a bygone era. Hey, the Kylie Minogue music video "Celebration" has a very similar "drummers" scene in it, obviously inspired.

This is a vintage music video from way back and I would dearly like to have it on proper DVD. No, I do not think Raquel is THAT great as a singer, but here, in a wild costume, she sure tries, and most certainly is hot, and this is, like, HISTORIC, man!
