ROCKPALAST 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 in almost four decades, it has become a trademark of quality viewing and listening.

A five-time Grammy nominee and named as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century by Musician magazine, Robben Ford is a premier American blues and jazz guitarist who has played with stellar artists as diverse as Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Greg Allman, Bonnie Raitt, John Mayall and George Harrison.

Our two concerts took place almost a decade apart. The first, in April 1998, was at the Leverkusen Bluesfest, with a band comprising Neil Larsen on keyboards plus Blue Line stalwarts Roscoe Beck on bass and Tom Brechtlein on drums.

Highlights include 'The Brother’, the impressive opening cut from the Blue Line’s 1992 debut recording that was inspired by the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, while The first three numbers played, Paul Butterfield’s ‘Lovin’ Cup’, Charlie Singleton’s ‘Help The Poor’ and the Duke Ellington-penned ‘You Ain’t Nothin’ But The Blues’, were all performed acoustically. The second, in Leverkusen in 2007, saw him backed by Travis Carlton on bass (guitar legend Larry Carlton's son) and Toss Panos on drums. They each feature on the extended ‘The Way You Treated Me’. Highlights of the TV performance include the title track of the 1999 album ‘Supernatural’, and a tribute to BB King in ‘Riley B. King’, written with Keb Mo. This and other highlights ‘How Deep in the Blues (Do You Want To Go)’, ‘Lateral Climb’, ‘Too Much’ and ‘Peace On My Mind’ come from his concurrent Grammy-nominated album ‘Truth’ (2007). Robben Ford is, without doubt, one of the Guitar Greats, and this spot-on performance will delight all fans of well-crafted and highly refined guitar playing.

Expertly restored and remastered. Superb vision, outstanding sound. The best in the business!
