A Rockpalast TV broadcast from German television. Like almost all TV broadcasts back then, this was in mono. The original show can be watched here on YouTube.
What Was Done
The recording was generally in good shape for a VHS recording nearly 40 years old but was fairly murky and muddy, lacking in low and high frequencies. Volume was also a bit up and down in places and more on the right than the left (a mono soundtrack but recorded on a stereo VHS so there were 2 channels of mono). Once the volume was leveled out and the 2 channels balannced, I got to work with EQ and the usual studio toys to bring some clarity to the sound mix, so bass, drums, vocals, especially were more audible and everything was clearer. And made one or 2 other little fixes at the beginning and end, so the show flows better. Finally, I mastered to make it clearer still and more powerful overall, and much "wider". The result is very very listenable now.
As always, the show is available to download or stream for free as a single 320kbps MP3. Just hit the link:

Supporting The Site
If you want to support the work I do on these recordings, and the site, and (if you wish to) obtain separate, fully tagged 320kbps MP3s, lossless FLACs or even a copy on CDR, head on over to the Rewards For Donations tab to see how you can obtain these for a very small donation towards the site costs. There is no obligation to do so of course - you can take the file on this page absolutely for free - but every single donation does go towards this site and domain/storage costs, and helps the site stay open, and helps me do more shows. Either way, enjoy the show.
