4.0 out of 5 stars The Master @ his best,live @ playing his rear off. August 14, 2011
At last 23 years after his death,we have a complete,full length concert. Roy is in good humor,and his playing is masterfull.Buchanan is given ample back up by a three man band.Roy tears thru many of his favorites, but really shines on The Messiah,Roys Blues, Blues in D, and the closing Wayfairing Pilgrim,the audio is stero and very good. The video is good ,with a few interference lines thru-out the concert.Buchanan fans should love this show and anybody that digs hot Blues-Rock guitar. OOJasonM.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely well filmed Roy Buchanan Concert October 1, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Watching this performance of Roy Buchanan in Concert is captivating. Can not help but to be taken away hypnotically by watching Mr. Buchanan's techinique as he creates these outstanding sounds from his guitar.

Most of this is due to the fine filming of this performance. There are plenty of excellent close up shots of Roy Buchanan's guitar while he is playing.

You will notice that at times Roy Buchanan appears to be crying while he plays. His eyes are watery as he plays his blues notes and adds his signature pinch harmonics and volume control sounds. Perhaps the emotion he puts into his playing.

The filming method or editing of this performance is the highlight of this DVD.

I personally prefer the performance of Live from Austin Texas. But this Roy Buchanan Live at Rockpalast is also a gem in it's own right.Live From Austin Texas

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's Roy's Band ? April 18, 2012
By H-Bomba
First off..ANY video footage of Roy's unique guitar stylings are worth their weight in gold.It's sad to think that more of it isn't in the vaults somewhere.Growing up in the DC suburbs we got to see Roy live way more than the unfortunates who lived elsewhere. Anyway.....While the production of this show,and Buchanan's playing, are great, it's painfully obvious he's playing with pick-up guys. (Chuck Berry is famous for crappy ones). Most of them were from UK pop band, Martin Stephenson and the DAINTEES ! What do these guys know about the blues? Sure they play OK, but they just don't fit.Save your cash and opt for the short but sweet Austin City Limits set(now with CD too!)It's got waaay more soul,and the REAL band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roy Buchanan Live at Rockpalast DVD January 21, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Rockpalast Concert was recorded at the Markthalle in Humburg Germany on February 24th 1985 - just three years before Roy Buchanan's tragic suicide with John Steele - Guitar keybords & vocals , Anthony Dunn - Bass , Martin Yule - Drums playing and singing on 13 tracks : Thing in G (Short Fuse) , Green Onions , Roy's Blues (Roy's Bluz), Walk Don't Run , Sweet Dreams , Peter Gunn , Blues in D (Blues Shuffle Instrumental) , Hey Joe , Foxy Lady , Messiah (Messiah Will Come Again) , Night Train , Linda Lou and Wayfaring Pilgrim .

Another great live performance by Roy Buchanan & Band and the only thing wrong with this DVD there's venetian blinds in dark blue across the screen for about 10 seconds give o take mostlikely reflections from backstage lightning and as soon as they change camera angles gone , no drama for a Rare live performance and you still get to see the entire live concert on 4:3 full screen not like some with black bars on both sides of the screen with not a bad picture quality & as for the sound only PCM Stereo and Region Free , I have been a fan from the time heard Roy Buchanan on the worlds best guitarists compilation on Vinyl and only two live performances on video that I know about - Live from Austin and Live at Rockpalast so if you're a fan Live at Rockpalast is another rare must have live performance .

As collector of guitar music, this is a top ten listing by far. What an unexpected blasting performance.
Guitar-Blues in screaming, smooth, gently, shivering.....(no words for)..
Phuh, have it in my player for the last three weeks, only changed it briefly to hear my other purchases (Janis Joplin and Joe Bonamassa) and changed back again

Always good to have a sublime live performance of a great guitarist!

(xcuse me for the pronouncing, I'm dutch)
