PHILADELPHIA 1979 - FM MASTER REEL
|Venue||Tower Theatre, Philadelphia, USA|

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 (see audience recording for the full set). Mark mentions that they'll play the new songs after the radio broadcast is over. This was for many, if not all, the first 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. This recording was made from the FM broadcast (recorded from WCOZ FM radio) and taken from the master reel of the taper. Very good sound quality.
