A STRAITS THING
1. Setting me up
1. Why aye man
Shepherd's Bush Empire, London, UK, 24th July 2002
A great home-made Super Video-CD, completely multi-camera. Video footage has been taken from 4 different private video sources, mixed with the best sounding audio recording. Complete recording of this excellent show, which was 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!) in the second half. But during the whole gig different musicians are turning up. Jimmy Nail was guest for Why Aye Man and Money For Nothing. Really surprising this night was Jools Holland's appearance on Run Me Down and Setting Me Up. Available on three CD-R's.
Video-CD's can be played on DVD players or normal CD-ROM players using Windows Media Player. I can play this Video-CD on my external Sony DVD player (DVP-NS705V) without any problem. Note however that some DVD players have problems with Video-CD's. So I can only guarantee that they work on your PC CD-ROM drive!
