In 1997, The Hamsters performed at a Blues Festival in Germany, which was filmed and edited highlights were shown on European TV. The full set they played is released here as "Rodents Rock The Reich."
As ever Slim (Guitar), Zsa Zsa (Bass Guitar) and Otis (Drums) are at their unsurpassed best. With Slim introducing the songs in German as well as English the band power through selected highlights of their live shows that have given them the reputation of being one of the finest (and hardest working!) bands in the country.
Superb performances of "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" and "Purple Haze" represent the Hendrix side of their repertoire, there's a great rendition of the blues standard "The Walk" from their regular set and own numbers like the humorous 'protest song' "Blues For The Blues" and the wonderful "I Wanna Make Love To You" show they are far from being a covers band.
The main set closes with ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man" and the encore of their very own "Chequebook" closes the performance.
Remastered onto DVD, again by Kurt Adkins, this is yet another excellent release by the band, the picture quality, having been filmed for TV is very sharp, and the sound quality is excellent. If you're into real music by excellent musicians, this DVD is a must-have!!! (Mr. Ram Brook "tattoolover")
