Incredibly high quality black & white footage of Kraftwerk’s TV debut -  performing @ Rockpalast in 1970 shortly after forming, what is really fab about this film (apart from the lovely footage of the band) is how much of the audience we get to see during the concert!

Winter 1970

0. Intro
1. Stratovarius
2. Ruckzuck
