George Thorowgood - Live At Rockpalast

Label : M.I.G. Music | Archive under bluesrock

Release type: DVD/Video/Blu-ray

Cor : George Thorowgood will be known by most people because of his hitsingle 'Bad To The Bone', a song which cannot be found on this registration (DVD and double CD) This particular show is recorded in 1980, and the release of the hit single was in 1982, so we'll have to do without that song. Fortunately there's enough song material to enjoy, because the man has done more than just that one track. This being a Rockpalast release should also be some kind of trustworthy sign of quality by the way. Some other tracks worth checking out on this DVD are 'Cocaine Blues', 'One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer', the Chuck Berry cover 'Reelin And Rockin' and that other not that well known hit 'Who Do You Love'. Some like to refer to the guitarist/singer as "Satan's Slide", and sure, the man knows how to play a bit of slide guitar, but when it comes to soloing, my preference would go to the great contributions on sax. The gig itself is performed very well, as is the quality of the sound, The video footage may be slightly sober in terms of lighting and decoration, but that's made up by the convincing performance by the band and the enthusiasm of the audience. Towards the end of the show, there are so many people dancing on stage, one can barely discover the musicians anymore; some party! Anyway, the Rockpalast archive has released another worthy piece of music history.
