Live At Rockpalast - Dortmund 1980
Live At Rockpalast - Dortmund 1980
Price: £22.78

5.0 out of 5 stars This is THE ONE to buy!, 10 Oct. 2017
Bought this (from eBay) and I must say THIS is the one to get! He really does rock (and enjoys the concert too) unlike later ones like "Live in '99" or even later appearances (see my review of that '99 concert)

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 10 Oct. 2017
Bought this (from eBay) and sadly, like so many other greats from the past, he should have stayed at home. He CAN still cut it but is almost just going through the motions (of topping up his pension pot maybe) and doesn't even seem to be enjoying himself which I find very sad and off-putting. This went straight to my local charity shop after just one, buzzed-through play.
The one to get is the older George Thorogood and The Destroyers : Live at Rockpalast 1980 which is a blast and how you expect him to be! See it here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Live-At-Rockpalast-Dortmund-1980/dp/B01N9GUAWE/ref=tmm_acd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1507621060&sr=8-6

Dvd ~ James Brown
Price: £12.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing as NOT all are "Giants of Rock 'n Roll", 9 Oct. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Giants of Rock n Roll [DVD] (DVD)
Misleading title as many of the artists on here are NOT "giants of Rock 'n Roll"
James Brown (the godfather of SOUL maybe but Not Rock 'n Roll)
Bo Diddley (yes a REAL Rocker)
Ray Charles (a JAZZ pianist; not a Rocker)
Little Richard (maybe sings Rock 'n Roll but I thought Gender-Neutral was new)
Jerry Lee Lewis (STILL the KILLER)
Dave Edmunds (very under-rated as a Rocker)
Fats Domino (another JAZZ man, not a Rocker)
B.B.King (fantastic bluesman but NOT a Rocker)

1.0 out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor!, 19 Aug. 2017
Just bought this VERY SAME item (through eBay) and:-
1) Advert clearly states these pedestal mats are 50 x 50 BUT the label shows (correctly) that they are actually only 50 x 40
2) Advert clearly states machine washable at 40 BUT the label says 30
3) Advert clearly states can be tumble dried BUT the label says do NOT tumble dry
Extremely disappointed with the general quality & finish too

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating for fans!, 24 Jun. 2017
Mostly already said but this is a pretty damn good documentary with the added bonus of 6 live songs too! Look out for (listen out for) Keith Richards last comment in chapter 7 (right near the end) and THEN watch the live performances! He must have known what was to follow!!


70th Birthday Celebration [DVD]
70th Birthday Celebration [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars What a really nice guy Albert is (and so well respected by all ..., 4 Jun. 2017
What a really nice guy Albert is (and so well respected by all his guests & peers too)
I've not enjoyed a concert this much in years. I've seen him live a few times in the past but never realised his versatility of playing & singing rock 'n roll, ballads, blues, c&w etc etc.
Over 3 hours of first class performances very well recorded over 2 days. I promise you won't be disappointed!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing....yes, Entertaining....no!, 17 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
VERY disappointing indeed. We all know he's a great guitarist but just standing there totally unemotional and indifferent to his audience (or band) does not make this entertaining to watch. I actually fast forwarded/skipped each track within around 30 seconds of the start of each one as it was just so bloody BORING!
If even he doesn't smile or appear to enjoy himself how the hell can an audience be expected to enjoy themselves. It's just a good job I didn't pay silly money for seats there as I'd have had a serious falling out with the management trying to get my money back (fortunately this DVD cost me under £7 so I'm happy to pass it on to my local charity shop!)

Talking of great guitarists (and pianist/organist too) I've just watched Albert Lee's 70th birthday concert where he and his numerous guests and his audience ALL thoroughly enjoyed themselves which WAS entertaining.
