Additional comments

The sound on this recoding is not that good. Second Italian concert in the Dire Straits history. During this period Dire Straits experimented a lot with their music. Adding new sounds, new arrangements and also new songs, plus some new band members. The song News is dedicated to John Lennon and Bob Marley. There is a small skip in Sultans of swing. Pretty loud audience in between the songs. Unsure if it's the complete concert as Skateaway is no part of this recording while it was usually part of the set list. Telegraph road isn't present either, but that might be because it was a new, not yet released song at that time. Dire Straits did play that song on some other Italian concerts, so maybe it just wasn't recorded (or just not played of course).
