A this and that, "masters of rock", 3 step torrent production. (master tape > WAV > FLAC > torrentially yours.) cuz somebody's gotta do it. recorded and digitized by glasnostrd19. do not sell this recording. Share freely, losslessly and gaplessly. comments: this is the FM coverage part of this concert, which ended after "southbound again". the missing part is about the last half-hour of the show and includes songs later heard on the band's second album "communique". Mark mentions that they'll play the new songs after the radio broadcast is over. the ones heard here are from their 1978 1st studio album, "Dire Straits". this was for many, if not all, the 1st (of many) time a Dire Straits concert was heard on U.S. radio and just when Sultans of Swing and Down to the Waterline were becoming big radio hits. by the end of the year Dire Straits had become a regular staple in FM rock radio. this recording was made from the FM broadcast and is one of the best FM recordings I've made.
