The Rockets were one of those shoulda-been-huge Hard/Rock'n'Roll bands. They were formed in the beginning of the seventies from ex-Detroit members Jim McCarty (also ex-Cactus) and Johnny Badanjek, these were joined in 1976 by David Gilbert (ex-Amboy Dukes) on vocals. They released six albums, the last one being the excellent Live Rockets from 1983 that I still hope to be reissued on CD someday. Anyway, these recording shows how good they were on stage.

About Cobo Arena Detroit 1979 : This is not the complete show, this is the most listenable portion of a tape I recorded from the radio. Approximately the first 15 minutes and the last 30 minutes are not included.
