Live at Rockpalast
REMASTERED STEREO SOUNDTRACK CD
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.
PERFORMANCE DATE: MARKTHALLE HAMBURG, GERMANY, 12 JANUARY, 1980. Their only appearance as Rockpile (though Dave Edmunds appeared solo later in 1983).
Rockpile was a tight, entertaining band combining the talents of Dave Edmunds (guitar, vocals), Nick Lowe (bass, vocals), Billy Bremner (guitar, vocals) and Terry Williams (drums). This is an essential release for fans, as Rockpile never released a ‘live’ album in their short lifetime.
Contains greatest hits from both Dave Edmunds’ and Nick Lowe’s stellar back catalogues. Features songs contributed by Mickey Jupp (‘You’ll Never Get Me Up In One Of Those’), Elvis Costello (‘Girls Talk’), Chuck Berry (‘Let It Rock’ & ‘Promised Land’) and, of course, Nick Lowe - Stiff Records’ songwriter supreme - including a version of his debut solo hit ‘So It Goes’.
Informative booklet with twin liner notes - in English by Will Birch, noted British journalist, broadcaster, author and, expert on the Pub Rock and the ‘Southend Rock’ scene (of which Dr Feelgood were the leading exponents) - and in German by noted journalist and broadcaster Uli Kniep.
Expertly restored and remastered. Superb vision, outstanding sound. The best in the business!
