Musikladen Live Review

by David Abolafia

Package Description:

"Superb musicianship and artistry come blazing through in these rare and exciting performances of artists and groups of the '60s, '70s and '80s. These are the international stars that were part of the televised monthly music show Beat Club and MusikLaden. Filmed in Germany at the television studios of Radio Bremen, MusikLaden (originally knowm as Beat Club) became a TV classic not only for the fans but also for the artists who took part. There was no time limitation on song length so artists were able to perform live concet versions of their most popular hit songs. Blending a good natured down home jug band sound, this 1974 Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show provides a unique and humorous side to Rock n' Roll. Their signature song "Cover Of The Rolling Stone" did the trick and earned them a prestigious spot on the cover of the legendary rock magazine."
