I was viewing an archived video clip titled 'Rush - Electronic Press Kit - 1991' from the 'Roll The Bones' era on YouTube below.



At the 0:55 mark, the title track is played with a real poker table and roulette wheel.

From seeing the well known 'Roll The Bones' video below, I've never seen the above.



It makes me wonder if there was a second alternate video made for 'Roll The Bones'.

In a related way, that first video mention at the 0:55 mark makes me think of the video for 'Wind Him Up' by Saga.

Could be the people who worked on the interview clips added in stock footage of the roulette wheel?

I quite like my "rap-free" edit of the tune.

That would be a nice bonus to a 30th anniversary edition of the album! Rap free is the way to go.

Maybe it was a placeholder while Pixar was slaving away at that skull.

Don't think I ever saw this. Still haven't. Looks like it was taken down.

I thought it was odd they only made one video to promote RTB during the height of early '90s MTV video play.
Bravado and Ghost were also released as singles but no videos like the 3 made for the previous Presto album songs.

Permenant Waves also strangely had no videos either even though they made a bunch for the previous and following albums
