Ian Hunter Band Live at Rockpalast DVD, 1980
Ian Hunter was a pivotal figure on the hard rock scene, as most likely you know. Starting with Mott the Hoople and then with his own band, he created some classics and made a mark. Throughout it all (more or less) fellow guitarist Mick Ronson was a part of the proceedings.
Ian Hunter Band feat. Mick Ronson Live at Rockpalast (MIG 90409) joins the band for an hour-long 1980 live broadcast as part of the West German television series. It's the band in good spirits doing familiar material and some new things at the time as well. There's good rocking and some Dylanesque numbers, as was Ian's wont.
The sound is fine, visuals clear and it is what it is. You will like it certainly if you like things Ian Hunter style. Good Hunter-ing!
