Product Description

Product Description

Fun,interesting and raunchy - a proper band with a great vocalist,and real instruments playing real music that's what the Streetwalkers were all about!The band continued the partnership of vocalist Roger Chapman and guitarist Charlie Whitney,the songwriting duo at the heart of legendary British progressive band Family(formed 1967,disbanded 1973).Although the Streetwalkers were somewhat sidelined during the punk era back home in Britain,they remained consistent concert attractions in Europe.Now is the time for reassessment the recent Family reunion concerts and reissues proved a strong market exists,and Roger Chapman has a strong web presence.Two different backing bands perform on this DVD,both led by guitarist Bob Tench(Humble Pie,Jeff Beck).The 1975 show features Jonathan Plotel(bass)and future Iron Maiden man Nicko McBrain (drums).This line up recorded the albums Downtown Flyers(1975)and Red Card(1976).The 1977 line-up includes Michael Feat(bass),David Dowle(drums) and Brian Johnstone(keyboards)both of whom went on to Whitesnake.This line up recorded the album Vicious But Fair (1977).Features key songs from both Streetwalkers and Family's back catalogues,with iconic Family songs Burlesque and My Friend The Sun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Band Caught Twice in Germany. 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I saw this band twice while they existed. They appeared twice on the German TV show and this is sort of those episodes. I say sort of, because the band played four songs and decided they hadn't played three of them well enough. I assume the broadcast programme only used the re-played versions of those songs (which weren't done THAT badly anyway). However, it is interesting to see what Streetwalker's consider substandard, and the rest some good seventies rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars "It's Been A Banner Year For STREETWALKERS Fans......" 17 Feb 2014
By John H. McCarthy - Published on Amazon.com
If you're a STREETWALKERS fan (newbies scroll to the bottom) and thought you were thrilled with the recent Rip It Up At The Rainbow and Rip It Up At The Demontfort live releases, get ready to faint, Germany's great Repertoire Records has released STREETWALKERS "Live At Rockpalast," a 2CD and DVD (!) set with a 1975 show with original bassist Jonathan Plotel and future Iron Maiden man Nicko McBrain on drums. Both were in the band when they recorded what I feel were their strongest albums, "Downtown Flyers" and the stunning "Red Card." Two takes of the 1977 show have Michael Feat on bass and David Dowle on drums, along with keyboardist Brian Johnstone (the latter two later joined WHITESNAKE). Some clips from these shows have been on YouTube for a while. I have similar sets from Repertoire featuring ROCKPILE, CLIMAX BLUES BAND and MICKEY JUPP, and the quality of all considering their age have been excellent, but they only have a single concert apiece. The STREETWALKERS set is an embarrassment of riches in comparison! Here's the track listings:

Tracks 1-12 from Streetwalkers - Live At Rockpalast (WDR-Studio L, Köln, 19.04.1977)

The set comes in a nice slipcased digipak with a booklet featuring a history of the group based on a lengthy interview with Bob Tench. The sound and picture is as good as it gets for it's age and somewhat better than the companion ROCKPILE and MICKEY JUPP sets. There are some clips on YouTube that you can check out beforehand. Stop your toenail draggin' and down some rum, jump on your horse and buy this immediately.....!

Other essential STREETWALKERS releases: First Cut (Rare 1st album, more of a Chapman/Whitney duet release), Downtown Flyers (1st official band album), Red Card (German Repeetoire release of 2nd album with bonus track), BBC Radio 1 in Concert (6 tracks from OGWT and Paris Theatre), Red Card/Vicious But Fair (2nd & 3rd albums), Live (CD of original 2LP set).

For the uninitiated: STREETWALKERS rose from the ashes of beloved UK group FAMILY, formed by FAMILY vocalist extraordinaire Roger Chapman and guitarist Charley Whitney, both were also the band's main songwriters. Active between 1966 and 1973, the band released seven studio albums, a remix album and numerous singles. Since their demise there have been a bounty of compilations including a live set, four BBC session and concert discs and the requisite box set or two. Other well-know members include Ric Gretch (poached by BLIND FAITH), John Wetton (poached by KING CRIMSON), Tony Ashton (Ashton, Gardner & Dyke) and Jim Cregan (BLOSSOM TOES, COCKNEY REBEL). Popular in the UK and Europe, FAMILY never made much of a dent in the US, but had most of their albums released here anyway. Upon their demise Chapman and Whitney made a duo album titled STREETWALKERS. A few concerts thrown together to promote the disc were wildly popular, encouraging them to form a full time band and triumverate with Bob Tench (JEFF BECK GROUP, HUMMINGBIRD) that lasted the run of the band. For anyone who wants to dip their toes in FAMILY's catalog, try Music in a Doll's House or Bandstand.
