Good audience recording of the second of four
charity gigs in July 2002. This one is on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust.
Announced as "Mark Knopfler and friends", Mark plays with The Notting
Hillbillies in the first half of the show and with virtually Dire Straits
(including John Illsley and Chris White) in the second half. But during the
whole gig different musicians are turning up. Jimmy Nail came on stage for
backing vocals on Why aye man, Money for nothing and So far
away. Jools Holland was a special guest this night on the two absolute
stunning versions of Run me down and Setting me up. Some nice
arrangements on What it is, Romeo and Juliet, and including new
songs Quality shoe and Why aye man from The ragpicker's dream
album which was released two months after the charity shows. Good sound quality.
