Grobschnitt: Rockpalast (1978) [Proshot DVD - 2004 Digital Rebroadcast]



PORTUGUÊS:
O Rockpalast é um programa tradicional da emissora alemã WDR que desde a metade dos anos 70 exibe shows completos ou não de diversas bandas e dos estilos mais variados possíveis. No fim de 1978, a emissora reservou o Westfalenhalle, na cidade de Dortmund, para uma série de shows por alguns dias e, nessa ocasião, o Grobschnitt estava incluído e tocou um setlist de cerca de 80 minutos.

No fim dos anos 70, com a ascensão de estilos como punk e new wave, já estava mais difícil ainda ver uma banda progressiva na televisão, mas mesmo assim o Grobschnitt audaciosamente tocou 'Solar Music', que tinha mais de 50 minutos de duração e que estava presente em quase todos seus shows. O show em si é sem dúvida fantástico e pode ser desfrutado com as vantagens de ser uma transmissão digital. Apenas esperamos que este e vários outros shows gravados pela WDR se tornem lançamentos oficiais.

ENGLISH:
Rockpalast is a traditional programme by German TV station WDR which since the mid 70s presents full-lenght - or not - concerts from many bands of the most variable musical genres possible. In the fall 1978, WDR reserved Westfalenhalle, in Dortmund, for a concert series for a few days and for this occasion, Grobschnitt was called in to share the bill and played a setlist of about 80 minutes of lenght.

In the end of the 70s, with the ascencion of genres like punk and new wave, it had been becoming even harder to see a progressive group on TV, but otherwise Grobschnitt audaciously played 'Solar Music', a 50-minute long tune played in almost every concert. The concert itself is undoubtely fantastic and can be enjoyed with the advantages of a clean digital broadcast. We just expect that this and many other concerts taped by WDR happen to become official releases some day.
