Press Release:

Recorded at "Harmonie" (Bonn, Germany) during the Rockpalas Crossroads Festival, on 09/03/2005

Robin Trower's career has spanned more than four decades. He is one of the finest guitarists in Rock n' Roll history. Throughout his long and winding solo career, guitarist Robin Trower has been called the "White" Hendrix due to his uncanny ability to channel Hendrix' bluesy/psychedelic, Fender Strat-fueled playing style.

He spent the early 60's playing guitar in various London based outfits, and received his big break 1967 joining Procol Harum. After leaving Procol Harum 5 years later, Trower embarked on his solo career and found the success that has made him a legend today, armed with his fluid and powerful guitar style.

This fascinating and powerful show was recorded by the famous WDR Rockpalast on Robin Trower's 60th birthday, in March 2005 at the Crossroads Festival in Germany. The audience welcomed him with hundreds of luminous sparklers, singing "Happy Birthday". An evening full of atmosphere!

Muddy Waters - In Concert 1971  
Product Description
Rolling his eyes toward heaven and shaking his head like a man possessed, Muddy Waters cast a powerful spell. His high cheekbones and Oriental eyes gave him a certain Eastern, inscrutable quality, and at times his face even became angelic. He could easily work audiences into a frenzy, marrying the unmistakable sexual urgency of his lyrics to the vocal slide statements that for 40 years were as much a part of his signature as his voice, which many claim was the best in electric blues. A native Mississippi Delta bluesman, Muddy instinctively understood the unpretentious beauty and power in simplicity. Time and again, he transformed basic patterns into blues masterpieces. Decades after their introduction, hypnotic stop time songs such as Manish Boy still electrify audiences. Like the superstitions and voodoo images prominent in Waters best-known lyrics, the primal earthiness of his rhythms contains a deep, almost subconscious appeal. Jas Obrecht, Guitar Player Magazine. The rare footage presented in this video presents Muddy Waters at his prime and with one of his best bands. 

The concert was filmed during a West Coast tour in 1971. Titles include: Long Distance Call, Hoochie Coochie Man, Manish Boy, Walkin Thru The Park, Crawlin' Kingsnake, She s Nineteen Years Old, Got My Mojo Working and Hold It

The four final (bonus) tracks from the 1961 Newport Jazz Festival

The Kids Are Alright 

The reissue of The Who's documentary The Kids are Alright is excellent. It is not a complete concert, rather it offers numerous clips from throughout their career and shows them at the peak. 

In addition to the remastered music video there is a second disc of interviews and various other goodies, plus a thirty-two page book. 

The Who have two other worthwhile videos, The Who: Live at the Royal Albert Hall, from 2000 and The Who - Live at the Isle of Wight Festival from 1970, but this top choice.
