Live at Rockpalast

Rockpalast (‘Rock Palace’) is a legendary ‘live’ music TV show, hosted in Germany by the WDR channel. It first broadcast in 1974 and has become a pan-European television institution. It has its own fan club and online forum, and over nearly four decades, it has become a trademark of quality viewing and listening.

Performance date: Grugahalle, Essen, 15.09.1978.

One of three acts (with Peter Gabriel and Paul Butterfield) on Rockpalast’s Third Rocknacht (‘Rock Night’) on 15th September 1978 at the 10,000-capacity Grugahalle in Essen, recorded on the night of the famous Ali-Spinks Heavyweight Boxing match.

Features legendary guitarist Alvin Lee in his only Rockpalast appearance, with backing musicians Tom Compton (drums) and Mick Hawksworth (bass).

Full 10-song set includes the Ten Years After Woodstock classic ‘I’m Going Home’. Includes bonus unbroadcast tracks ‘Sweet Little Sixteen’ and 'Roll Over Beethoven'

Alvin Lee post-show comment: “The best TV show I ever appeared in.”
