A STRAITS THING
|The Notting Hillbillies & Dire Straits
|Shepherd's Bush Empire, London, UK
|24th July 2002
|DVD-Video containing the second charity concert from the July 2002 series on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust by the Mark Knopfler & Friends band: The Notting Hillbillies for the first part of the gig, then Dire Straits (with John Illsley and Chris White) for the second half where Jimmy Nail came on stage for backing vocals on Why aye man, Money for nothing and So far away. A very interesting concert with some nice arrangements on What it is, Romeo and Juliet, Baloney again, and including new songs Quality shoe and Why aye man from The ragpicker's dream album. Great to hear also the Dire Straits sound back again! It's a multi-camera version, filmed with four cameras. The various videos are nicely mixed. Good picture and sound quality, complete concert.
