Additional comments

Two different soundboard recordings from one of the biggest concerts of all time: Live Aid. Bands playing and giving their best just to send the whole world one message: Feed the world! Probably the largest charity concert to raise money for the starving people in Ethiopia. Dire Straits was one of the bands that appeared that afternoon at Wembley Stadium and they played just two songs: Money for nothing and Sultans of swing. Tracks 3 & 4 are taken from an Italian radio broadcast. Better sound than tracks 1 & 2 but with an Italian reporter talking at the beginning of the songs. Dire Straits was only able to play in the afternoon as they were in the middle of the Brothers in arms world tour had their own concert that evening at Wembley Arena, just around the corner of Wembley Stadium.
