In hindsight, MCA Records did a really REALLY bad job marketing Kelly Willis. She recorded three albums for them, plus there was a compilation (which included her fantastic version of Dave Alvin's "Little Honey").
Take this video, which was a minor country hit in 1991. The song is an emotional powerhouse, about an imminent breakup, with some significant snark included. How many wardrobe changes does she need for that? Because there are no less than six of them, and probably a lot more.
Still, the video does NOT detract from the great musical performance that is typical of Kelly Willis.
