Live at Rockpalast (1978 & 1981)

TWO ‘LIVE AT ROCKPALAST’ PERFORMANCES: WDR Studio-L, Köln, Germany, 16th June, 1978 & ‘Rocknacht’ at the Grugahalle, Essen, Germany, 17th-18thJune, 1981 TOTAL OVER 2 HOURS 20 MINUTES OF FILM FOOTAGE. RESTORED CONCERT PERFORMANCE on REGION FREE NTSC DVD: (Audio selection of Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound) REMASTERED STEREO SOUNDTRACK CDs DOUBLE VALUE PACK: DVD + 2CD 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. Discovered at the legendary CBGB’s club in New York, Mink DeVille was always most popular in Europe. Fronted by the charismatic singer, guitarist and songwriter Willy DeVille, US new wave band Mink DeVille are best known for their 1977 UK Top 20 smash hit 'Spanish Stroll'. This release combines Rockpalast shows in Cologne (1978) and Essen (1981), played by two completely different line-ups. The first showcases material from acclaimed album ‘Return To Magenta’; the second show features material from ‘Coup De Grace’, their fourth album, which was produced by Neil Young associate Jack Nitzsche. Willy DeVille - who interrupted his US tour for a week to play 1981’s important European televised concert - had been struck down by flu at rehearsal, but he fought this and an indifferent audience (in a long 4-act bill, headlined by Roger Chapman & The Shortlist) to deliver a memorable performance. Boz Scaggs recently paid tribute to DeVille, who died of cancer in 2009, with re-workings of 'Mixed Up Shook Up Girl' and 'Cadillac Walk' (both performed by Mink DeVille here on the 1978 show). Expertly restored and remastered. Superb vision, outstanding sound. The best in the business!
