About this deal

Many live albums work as "best of" compilations, and this one does the same, but only as far as the choice of tracks.

Auf "Private investigations" trumpft er auf der akustischen Gitarre auf, während Illsley seinem Bass wuchtige Töne entlockt. Unfortunately the records are in poor condition as I was very young and didn’t know how to handle them properly. It's one of those live albums that was edited down from a much longer concert, or even concerts, and feels a bit short.

Alchemy brought them into our suburban Surrey living room, songs about Newcastle and Telegraph Roads. VG+ (Very Good Plus): This record has clearly been played before, but has only a moderate reduction in sound quality, despite a possible slight loss of shine and some surface marks. Alchemy: Dire Straits Live is a double album and the first live album by the British rock band Dire Straits, released in March 1984 [4] by Vertigo Records internationally, and by Warner Bros. The album was then deleted to make way for the Sultans of Swing - The Best of Dire Straits CD released shortly after). The track’s simplicity and easygoing atmosphere make it an enjoyable addition to the indie music scene.

VG/EX means that the item's sleeve is in Very Good condition and the disc is in Excellent condition. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.The image of a guitar with lips held by a hand was added for the album design and covers sexually suggestive imagery in the original. His latest release, “The Last Big Score,” is a testament to his songwriting prowess, featuring memorable hooks and an undeniable energy that shines in both his live performances and . Recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 22–23 July 1983, the album features songs from the band's first four albums, the ExtendedancEPlay EP and Mark Knopfler's Local Hero soundtrack. This track presents a lovely take on the well-known song, infusing it with a mellow jazz vibe that showcases Graulund’s musical talent.

The crowd noise is minimal and mainly at the beginning and end of each song which actually adds to the enjoyment. It is the magnum opus "Telegraph road", the almost theatrical and yet mystifying "Private investigations", and for the owners of the CD version of the album (not included in the vinyl version), the lovely "Love over gold". My copy of this has this sleeve (NO barcode) but the Matrix has VERY11 crossed out on Side 1 and 2 - and 818244-A-3U-1-1- (side 1), 818244-B-2U-1-1 (side 2). Fissinger’s musical approach is refreshingly uncomplicated, allowing the beauty of the song’s simplicity to shine through.An expanded version of On The Night to include tracks performed during the tour which have never been released, taken from multitrack recordings of shows in Nimes, Rotterdam and Paris: ‘Tunnel Of Love, ‘Telegraph Road’, ‘Sultans Of Swing’, ‘Two Young Lovers’, ‘When it Comes To You’, ‘I Think I Love You Too Much’. The reworking of most of their songs, with exquisite keyboards and lengthy guitar solos, blends them together in such a way, that anybody can see the lines joining the dots and the whole picture. Wer die tollen Nummern vom Debütalbum in Live-Versionen hören will, muss zum beeindruckenden "Live at the BBC" (1995) greifen.

An exquisite live recording, that works perfectly for both keen fans and new listeners and set the bar high for any live recording since. Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. It is followed by the brief "Carousel Waltz" intro and standard version of the song (with improvisation sections). The vinyl was in great condition and there was only one slight distortion other than that incredible sound quality and I have literally listened to it over and over! Recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 22–23 July 1983, the album features the band's best known songs from their first four albums, along with tracks from the " ExtendeDancEPlay" EP and the " Local Hero" soundtrack by Mark Knopfler.com (also known as Esprit) has been the world's biggest and best seller of premium quality and top condition rare and vintage vinyl records, rare CD's and music memorabilia since 1985 - that's 39 years!

That Dire Straits’ introspective music loses much of its detail in a live setting matters less than that it gains presence and a sense of anticipation. Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description.
