“Portrait (He Knew)” was released in 1977 on the album Point Of Know Return

Posted by in categories: entertainment, military

It was clearly about Albert Einstein although not a lot of people seemed to be aware of the fact. It was a great song for a video, and one of my favorite on this particular album, the other’s being “Nobody Home”, “Closet Chronicles”, and “Dust In The Wind”.

Point of Know Return was HUGE in 1978! I remember listening to it over and over and over…loved the many instrumental breaks and solos.

The video is just layers and layers of masked images and masked video. Tried for some really cool effects and found some pretty neat ones…‘specially fond of that tree recoil effect from the atom bomb at that cool little note drag!

Anyway, as usual…I hope you find something to enjoy.

[Lyrics]
He had a thousand ideas, you might have heard his name.
He lived alone with his vision.
Not looking for fortune or fame.
Never said too much to speak of.
He was off on another plane.
The words that he said were a mystery.
Nobody’s sure he was sane.

But he knew, he knew more than me or you.
No one could see his view, Oh where was he going to.
