I stumbled (my usual method of internet browsing) across a series of photos taken by Rudi Gerlach which appear to be an interview with Rory and Frankie Miller. Is there a video or written transcript of this interview? It looks as if they are both having a good time. Here is the link, hopefully it works.

I heard early about this session. Next photo was taken from tape. Look at the subscription... it's the movie, 100%. But who now the owner of the tape we're never know. Most invisible collectors doesn't like to share their own collection.
I think the owner is the Joachim Matz or Larry Miller.

Good job Madrid74! I could'nt find it on Youtube. Watching it, I'm pretty sure Rory did'nt need to wait for the English translation, as I recall Donal saying that from all of his years in playing and recording in Germany, from Taste days on, Rory had acquired a good working knowledge of German. It would have been interesting to hear Rory speak Germany with his Irish accent. :)

Thank you Madrid! I discovered Frankie Miller through watching the Rockpalast videos, wish there were more of the two of them together.

Me too! Then I found out he worked with Robin Trower (one of my other favourite guitarists) too in the early 70ies! Sadly there are no recordings available.

I really think his voice suited Rory's guitar playing. Lucky us we got the Rockpalast DVDs!

The "owner" of this footage is German tv channel WDR. This was a Rockpalast one off special before the series was stopped in 1986. Why they did not put it on the Rockpalast DVD set I don't know, but it's not the only thing missing.
Rudi Gerlach was not only a friend of Rory but also a camera man for WDR who also worked for Rockpalast I think. This is where he got the tape from.

I'm glad it was saved and released. Hopefully the release of the IOW tape will encourage more of these archived videos to be released.
