Additional comments DVD-Video containing a very rare charity concert. Mark Knopfler, Guy Fletcher, Glenn Worf and Richard Bennett performed an intimate and "acoustic" concert (at least no drummer) for a sold out crowd at Boothbay Harbor's Opera House. A truly lovely concert, played to an audience of about 600 people. The concert was held as a fundraiser for the renovation of the Boothbay Opera House, and Mark Knopfler appeared as a courtesy to his good friend, Richard Ford. All proceeds from this concert were to be used to benefit The Opera House Challenge, a fundraising effort with a goal of $500,000 and an approaching deadline of September 30th 2006. The concert features some rarely played songs / one-offs like The trawlerman's song, Devil baby, Whoop de doo, A place where we used to live and If this is goodbye (originally a duet song with Emmylou Harris but now completely sung by Mark Knopfler alone). Filmed with two cams (DV / Hi-8mm). Picture quality is fairly good, allthough a bit dark, sound quality (Dolby digital 2.0 & Dolby digital 5.1) is good. Also subtitles included (English, French, Dutch, German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese). A really special recording featuring nice bonus material.
