O’s Notes: Rockpalast is a production by WDR-TV in Germany and features rock and roll legends now reproduced on CD and DVD. Mitch Ryder’s 3-disc set is one of the best. The bands are power packed with the guitars driving the energetic performances. CD 1 is an October 1979 performance in Grugahalle Essen. CD2&3 came 25 years later at a February 2004 performance in Burg Satzvey. Like a lot of great musicians, Ryder was from Detroit and he like many musicians was quite the character. Among his antics were showing up for the ’79 concert drunk! But he rose to the occasion with full intensity on all sets.
