Default Blue Lamp Live Footage and Rock-A-Little Demo??

I stumbled upon this video on youtube containing some footage of Stevie Nicks under a demo for Blue Lamp (one of my favorites). To my surprise the demo wasn't any of the ones I had heard from the Bella Donna sessions, her voice sounds much closer to how it sounded on Rock a Little. Does anyone know if she really demoed the song for the album and why? or was she just fooling around in the studio?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bByNbqOPacY

Also in the video (roughly at 1:12) there is some footage from of concert of hers. Unless I'm mistaken (It could be from the Wild Heart tour?) it looks to be from the Bella Donna video as she's wearing the same shirt she wore for that performance of Sara. Does this mean that the live footage for Blue Lamp (and maybe Think About It) DO exist from that tour in some form?

And if so HOW DO I GET A HOLD OF THAT FOOTAGE?!

Definitely sounds Rock-A-Little. What is the demo she's singing at the end of Blue Lamp? I can't imagine she was planning to re-record it for RAL since it was already released on the Heavy Metal soundtrack.

This is the "Blue Lamp/It's Not A Dream" demo from the Rock A Little sessions, I have no idea if she actually planned on rerecording Blue Lamp, maybe she was just messing in the studio.
The footage at 1:12 is from a Wild Heart concert and was originally used for this Entertainment tonight interview from 1983: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bsbnx_m8lH8.

Ahh gotcha. Thanks for clearing that up. I'll revert back to the theory that footage probably doesn't exist then.

I am so proud of you(not that it really matters) cause as a huge FM fan it is so refreshing to read a post like yours instead of the usual ones that became fans because of the Large radio hits.

The studio version of Doing What I Can did nothing special for me, but the live version blew my socks off.

Thank you! I mean I was aware of the band through the singles (Rhiannon, Gypsy, Don't Stop, GYOW, etc.) but I didn't become the rabid fan that I am until I heard those four songs. A lot of the deeper cuts are just as appealing as the hits, if not more so.
