a great title

here you see an older version of mark really putting forth a recording that compromises an older version of the dire straits. it sounds fresh and ambituous with an extrremely talented guitarrist who deserves accolades with probobly the best and yet you find it to be simple and ridiculously brilliant. if you are new to the straits this will serve you as a splendid appetizer to things happened later. i really like pick witthers (drums) effort here. mark knopfler leaves no doubt. this is the type of record that grown on you. play it too many times and it will stay on your brains only to be taken off thru surgery. a masterpiece.

Get Alchemy

This is a nice, functional Dire Straits effort, but the only live album to get is 1983's Alchemy -- both the video and album. You won't find a better live record than Alchemy

So Awesome!!

The recording engineers behind this live album are pure genius. If you enjoy spending a Sunday afternoon in your listening room, powering up the amps, and spinning either some vinyl or a CD, you have got to check this one out. The entire drum kit comes through so clear, everything is crisp, lively, and the soundstage is HUGE! I close my eyes, imagine myself at a small table just off from center stage, the smoke-filled atmostphere piercing my senses, and my feet tapping to the sounds of these great tunes!
