One of the top rock groups of all time, featuring my favorite lead rock singer/guitarist, Mark Knopfler!
Probably their best live video , this concert from the live Album was recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon London on the 22 & 23 July 1983 , and features songs from their first four albums.
The musicians on this live concert are Mark Knopfler – Guitar and Vocals , John Illsley – Bass , Alan Clarke – Keyboards, Hal Lindes – Guitar , Terry Williams – Drums ,Tony Mandel -additional Keyboards , Mel Collins – Saxophone , Joop De Korte – Percussion .
A fine concert from an outstanding rock band
Guitarist and composer Mark Knopfler remains one of my favorite musicians of the rock era , and one of the things I like about him is the fact that he is ageing gracefully as an entertainer , and seems to have settled on playing more “age appropriate” music.
Indeed , I think this is one of the things I loved about Dire Straits was the fact that they came on the scene as a mature band , not as teens , and their music reflected it.
Here is Mark Knopfler in Germany in 2007 , performing his anti-war hit “Brothers in Arms” before an appreciative audience.
This was A live performance from the Meistersaal, Berlin on the 10th September 2007 filmed and broadcast by German TV station, RBB.
