Additional comments Very good sounding recording. Nice version of Song for Sonny Liston, a song which was not played on the European leg of this tour. One of the non-musical highlights was a well timed shout out from one of the female fans in the audience. Right as the crowd was settling down after Sultans of swing, before Song for Sonny Liston, in the silence she yells out: "You rock my soul sex man!" to which Mark Knopfler replies "I just gotta adjust my hearing aid... You know that you're gotta be doing something right when the ladies start barking like dogs. You know the rest of the band, they're just coiled springs and they're waiting to stave of the stage invasion, you know what I mean? Where have they gone? I've got no protection at here at all..." Very funny moment, it's clear that Mark and the band are having a great time on the road! Complete show.
