Paul Young & The Royal Family: Live At Rockpalast 1985 (DVD+CD) 2019 Release Date: 9/27/2019
Young and his band, tagged The Royal Family, appeared live on Rockpalast in Essen on 30th March 1985. With the finances and backing to bring together a band capable of serving as the perfect foil to his tried and tested white soul/pop amalgam the Rockpalast show finds Young, brimming with confidence, vital and, pardon the pun, young and at the peak of his pop powers.
With a nine-piece band (Young included) they exude a stylish and classy delivery that includes all the hits and album tracks of the period that allowed him to reach a peak of popularity where his boyish and youthful good looks helped propel him into the mainstream pop world. Listening and watching back today three-decades (plus) on it's obvious he already learned his trade.
