A Young Leo Kottke

By Miche Archetto:

Here is an old video of Leo Kottke playing live on the German TV show “Rockpalast” in 1977. He plays two pieces from his famous album “6- and 12-String Guitar” (1969). One is a 12-string guitar transcription of “”Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”, the last movement of Bach’s cantata BWV 147. The second piece is called “Jack Fig”.

Rockpalast (Rock Palace) is a German music television show that broadcasts live on German television station Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR). Rockpalast started in 1974 and continues to this day. Hundreds of rock and jazz bands have performed on Rockpalast. Some acts were recorded for broadcast throughout Europe and for retail sale. All-night marathon shows called “rocknights” were produced once or twice a year from 1977 through 2009.
