Progressive Rock DVD/Video Reviews


Live at Rockpalast DVD

Review by Gary Hill

The first thing I need to mention here is, this is labeled as a “region 0” disc, meaning it should play in pretty much any player. I didn’t find that to be true. Ultimately I had to play it on my PC because my DVD players wouldn’t play it and even then, it had some trouble with stopping and bogging down. So, I would say “buyer be forewarned” on that. Let’s get to the DVD itself, though. I hadn’t heard of this band until recently, but they were apparently a legendary band in krautrock circles. I wouldn’t consider everything they do progressive rock, but enough of this film is prog to land it there. Either way, though, these guys rock. The video and audio are good for 1970s standards, but not great, meaning you have to remember when watching this that it’s not up to modern standards. Also, this is a short film at less than an hour. It’s a great concert, though and well worth having, assuming it will play on your device.
