Black Uhuru

Live At Rockpalast - Essen 1981 DVD

Review by Gary Hill

You really can't go wrong with this outfit. I guess I mean Rockpalast, as well as Black Uhuru. I mean, these DVDs are all pretty darned good. This is no exception. Black Uhuru's brand of reggae is always on message and on game. This show is no exception. The video and audio are pretty good for the time period, but not up to modern standards. Still, this was from 1981, so what do you expect. The only video bonus feature is a trailer for the show. However, there is a bonus audio CD of the show that more than makes up for it. This show is a bit over an hour long. It's an exciting and effective live performance captured well for DVD.
