Editorial Reviews

Kid Creole&Coconuts were founded in the early 80's by August Darnell. With his alter ego Kid Creole however, he found the vehicle for his creativity.Their first two albums ""Off the Coast of Me""(1980)and ""Fresh Fruit in Foreign Places"" (1981) had been widely accepted, their big breakout came in 1982 with the album ""Tropical Gangsters"" containing the hits ""Annie,I'm Not Your Daddy,"" ""Stool Pigeon"" and""I'm A Wonderful Thing Baby.

Wow!! These mofos really kick out the jams. This is actually two concerts and and about four hours of nonstop hard rocking funk. They are a first rate show band and don't hold anything back. The video quality is very good for the time period, but the Rockpalast folks always do an excellent job. The sound quality is very good as well. I recommend this very highly.

take equal parts cab calloway,tito puente and james brown,throw in a little bob marley and youve got the kid creole formula.in other words a non_ stop party.in the u s. almost no one outside of ny city ever heard of them,which is a real shame.in europe they were stars and these two concerts show why.the
show i saw at radio city in nyc ranks as one the best ive ever seen .you owe it to yourself to own this.(but u can skip the conga line sequence at the end)

I bought this purely on a whim and it's actually pretty good. A big show! Was never a big fan or knew much of their music but I do remember one tune from MTV - Edicott. Unfortunately and much to my surprise, this song is not on here...Video quality is not bad and is acceptable for the 80's.

Tucson, lower Sonoran Desert, early '80s; I read a review of their second album" Fresh Fruit in Foreign Places," bought it, then their debut "Off the Coast of Me" and never looked back. I've now watched the nearly 4 1/2 hours (two shows) and consider this the completion of my diamond musical trilogy of DVDs - "Stop Making Sense" and "Shut Up and Play the Hits" and now "Live at Rockpalast." Every Kid Creole & the Coconuts fan needs this on their shelf.

in 2014 a day don't go by where i don't blast some kid creole and the coconuts. the cat was and is super bad. his creativity and concepts and theater and combinations of various genres,styles and films to stage is priceless.its truly and a travesity that he and the coconuts didn't blow up in america. this concert is how you are suppose to bring it live and he still does.great concert and energy.

Such an under appreciated performer and songwriter. The Rockpalast performance documents this line up in full glory. This is the tour that would bring the Welcome To The Club album -- with a twist or two. Great forward rocking stuff here... some may point to the glam era... I'd say more mod... either way it's good stuff. Would have been 5 stars but the mix was dicey in a couple spots -- mainly backing vocals. Doesn't take away from the overall brilliance.

I'm so thankful this amazing show was recorded and finally released. This is one of the best concerts of any band ever. Amazingly clever and funky songs; brilliant choreography/costumes, and musicianship. This is the original lineup of the group just as it achieved A-list status in Great Britain and Europe. The silly U.S. never fully caught on to the genius of Kid Creole. Being a Midwesterner, I never even got the chance to see the band live until 1986, though I'd been a huge fan since first seeing them on SNL in 1980.

Format: DVD
This DVD of Ian Hunter and the late Mick Ronson in a 1980 concert performance in Germany was originally recorded for a German TV network show.

It's a good representation of the Hunter-Ronson Band's stage show at that time and is well worth having if you're an Ian Hunter or Mick Ronson fan.

The camera work and video editing are good. The sound is also good although, to my ear, Mick Ronson's guitar is a bit too prominent in the mix and tends to drown out some of the other instruments in places. On the downside, this concert was recorded on video tape and the original tapes seem to have degraded a bit over time, so while the picture quality is quite acceptable it's not up to modern standards.

Amazon's page for this item doesn't include a set list so I'll include the set list here:

1. FBI
2. Once Bitten Twice Shy
3. Angeline
4. Laugh At Me
5. Irene Wilde
6. I Wish I Were Your Mother
7. Just Another Night
8. We Gotta Get Out Of Here
9. Bastard
10. All The Way From Memphis
11. Cleveland Rocks
12. All The Young Dudes
13. Slaughter On 10th Avenue

Overall, a worthwhile DVD for Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson fans.

Addition to original review: I see there's a CD version of this concert as well. If you're interested in a concert CD of Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson from this period, I'd advise getting Welcome To the Club instead of the CD version this one. This DVD is worthwhile but remember that the length of the show was restricted to fit into the TV time requirements, so this concert is shorter than the Welcome To The Club concert on CD.
