Additional comments DVD-Video containing the famous concert from Wembley 1985. Great show of the Brothers in arms tour, containing powerful versions. Nice to see the two guestplayers Nils Lofgren (Bruce Springsteen E Street Band) and Hank B. Marvin (The Shadows). Picture and sound quality are both very good. The picture is taken from probably one of the best preserved VHS tapes available and the sound is taken from the best sounding audio soundboard bootleg (Perfect Investigations), except for the songs Tunnel of love and Solid rock but which still have good sound. Expresso love was no part of the actual broadcast but used as an advert of the broadcast. Picture and sound quality are less good than the rest of the recording, but still very nice to see this rare recording which makes this DVD a unique item! Unlike most of the audio CD and DVD bootlegs of this concert, this DVD has the songs in the actual order they have been played during the concert. The DVD also features some nice bonus material. The first bonus is Dire Straits in Israel: interviews, live shots, exclusive video clips and the famous scenes with Dire Straits riding donkeys! The live shots were filmed in Jersusalem, Sultanpool Arena, the documentary was shot in Tel Aviv, and the exclusive videoclips were recorded in that city while rehearsing and showed as video clips only in that documentary. The second bonus is taken from the documentary "Music California", pro-shot version of the song One world played in County Bowl, Santa Barbara CA, USA, 12th September 1985. The last bonus is Wild west end, taken from Stadthalle, Vienna, Austria, 15th May 1985. Picture and sound quality are pretty poor, taken from an audience recording. The complete concert is also available on the DVD Vienna 1985.
