Additional comments DVD-Video containing some TV broadcasts featuring The Notting Hillbillies. The first part is a 15 minute special from the Swiss DRS channel which has an interesting interview with Mark Knopfler who is telling about the band but also about the upcoming new Dire Straits album On every street. The special has German subtitles. The DVD menu has a small error stating that it is a German documentary which is incorrect; it is recorded from Swiss TV. The Late Show features three live tracks by the band, very relaxed performance. Saturday Night Live features two songs including a really awesome version of Railroad worksong, great final solo's from Mark on this one. The Rock Steady special is also great. It features an interview with the band, some acoustic parts of songs and a rehearsal of When it comes to you. At the end of the special, the picture and sound are a bit out of sync, but still great to watch. The final concert of the 1990 tour, was in Snape on 15th May. One of the most remarkable and rare songs played that night was Dallas rag. The final track features a playback version of Your own sweet way. The picture quality varies but is mostly accaptable - good, except for the last track which has really poor picture quality.
