RESTORED CONCERT PERFORMANCES ON TWO REGION FREE NTSC DVDs: (Audio selection of Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound) REMASTERED STEREO SOUNDTRACK CD OF THE 1998 SHOW 24-PAGE BOOKLET FEATURING QUOTES FROM SEVEN PRESENT AND PAST BAND MEMBERS ROCKPALAST is a legendary ‘live’ music TV show hosted in Germany by the WDR channel. It was first broadcast in 1974 and has become a pan-European television institution. It has its own fan club and online forum, and in four decades, it has become a trademark of quality viewing and listening. The Pretty Things first formed in 1963 around the nucleus of ex-Rolling Stone Dick Taylor and vocalist Phil May. They had a hit with first single ‘Rosalyn’ in 1964 and continued to chart in R&B vein before turning psychedelic/progressive. Highlights from the group’s history include 1968’s 'S.F. Sorrow' concept album, credited as the inspiration for the Who’s ‘Tommy’. 1970’s ‘Parachute’ LP was Rolling Stone magazine’s album of the year, and the band enjoyed a renaissance in the 1970s on Swan Song Records, Led Zeppelin’s label. In June 2009, May, Taylor, Wally Waller, Jon Povey and Skip Alan reunited to receive the ‘Heroes’ award at the annual Mojo Awards ceremony. Now in 2014, they celebrate the 50th anniversary of their first chart smash hit. The main feature - Rockpalast’s 1998 - show was a Christmas Special from the Philipshalle, Düsseldorf, Germany on 19th December, supporting Van Morrison. It was broadcast across Germany and Europe to more than 20 million people. (This followed another groundbreaking event in September, when they performed their legendary rock opera ‘S.F. Sorrow’ from Abbey Road Studios, with Pink Floyd’s Dave Gilmour as guest. It was broadcast to the world via the internet). A long excerpt from ‘S.F. Sorrow’ is the highlight of this 1998 performance, which is restored and remastered for DVD and CD. Our bonus 2-shows DVD opens with the 2004 ‘Rockpalast - Crossroads Festival’ set, featuring covers of Bo Diddley’s ‘Mama, Keep Your Big Mouth Shut’, ‘Route 66’ and a guest appearance by Arthur Brown on a rendition of ‘Hoochie Coohie Man’, among many others at the Harmonie, Bonn, Germany. The 2007 show is also Crossroads Festival show, also from the Harmonie. It opens with 'The Beat Goes On', an autobiographical story of their rise, and ends with a lively rendition of their smash hit single ‘Rosalyn’. The Pretty Things are still fronted by Dick Taylor and Phil May and continue to put on a stunning show.
