Additional comments This was the final show on a UK tour where Dire Straits opened for Talking Heads. According to an eye-witness, there was a final encore of Gloria with the members of Dire Straits, but unfortunately that song was not recorded. Mark Knopfler did play on stage with Talking Heads on two tracks and John Illsley joined him on the hit Psycho killer. I listened to the tracks, but I can not say that Knopfler's sound is really recognizable here, he probably must have been playing some rhythm guitar on the songs. Good sound quality.
