Pretty good sound quality! This night was one of
the two nights being recorded (22nd & 23rd July) for the famous Alchemy
album. This recording
is exacly the same as the Alchemy show (but then of course as an
audience source), except for one small part...
I discovered that the last part of Solid rock
of the recording from 22nd July is the same as the last part of Solid rock
rock - sample bootleg recording 22nd July 1983
Anyway, great versions and of course great to hear the songs of this legendary night that did not make it onto the official album: Industrial disease, Twisting by the pool and the very nice version of Portobello belle. There is also some talking of Mark Knopfler during the intros of Romeo and Juliet and Tunnel of love that was edited out on the official album. Tunnel of love has a small skip in the recording, probably due to a tape change. Apart from that, this is the full show from the first to the very last note. This is also the last concert of the Love over gold world tour.
