If you take Joel Gray Cabaret mix it with Norman Wisdom and stuff it with punky attitude and east London funkysoul and poetry you get Ian Dury and the blockheads. This is London cockney funk done at its best with humor and edge .

If there were a ton of Ian Dury live performance recordings available, then this DVD would probably have been a 3 star rating. However, since I'm not aware of any other recordings of Ian in his prime, this performance gets an extra star.

This concert features nearly all the songs from the classic 'Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll' album, and the band is tight. Ian gives a great performance as well, but he seems continually off-balance due to the lackluster audience. Apparently, this is a very early Rockpalast recording, and at the time they were primarily featuring jazz artists. The Blockheads were quite a shock to this sedate crowd.

Add to that the language barrier, and you end up with a frustrated Dury repeatedly thwarted in his attempts to get the crowd excited. He struggles on manfully, but the flopsweat occasionally shows through. I don't speak German, so I can't say whether Dury's German was bad, or if he just wasn't funny.

But bottom line is that this is one of those rarities of concert recordings - a recording of the artist at his peak, doing the best material of his career - and with good production as well. It's a must-have for Ian Dury fans, plus its a rare piece of music history.

Like all Rockpalast videos extremely well filmed presentation of a wonderful performance. Performance is great; it's the only one I've ever seen.
