Johnny Winter: Vol. 3-Rockpalast = 2 CD = (CD)
12-track, two-disc set. The definitive breakthrough for the Rockpalast came on the fourth night, from 21st to 22nd April: The Grugahalle in Essen - the traditional staging location at this point, and it remained so for the next ten years -was completely sold out for the first time (an audience of 10,000) - which also remained the case: the subsequent Rockpalast Nights were sold out even before the programme was announced. The expectation that it would be good, regardless of the performers, was confirmed by the line-up in this fourth night. At prime time (News, Weather, Word for Sunday, Rockpalast) it was shown live again on the first TV channel and Europe-wide - from Italy to the North Cape - via Eurovision; the programme only ended when the last note was played.

He continued the blues trend of the Rockpalast, including the Johnnie Wells classic "Messin' with the Kid", which Rory Gallagher had opened the first Rockpalast Night with. Johnny Winter arrived in Düsseldorf and immediately wanted to watch our Muddy Waters concert (1978) tape on the video recorder in my room. He was very short-sighted, due to his albinism, and sat about ten centimetres from the screen and watched the show from beginning to end in this position. He was fascinated by Muddy Waters and obviously very pleased with our recording. Johnny said, "If you managed so well with a seven-man band, then I don't think we need to rehearse. We are only three men!" But this was not what the producer, Christian Wagner, had in mind, of course. We had allowed a whole day's rehearsals each for Johnny and the other groups. We had agreed that Johnny would pl
