Additional comments

Soundboard recording from Leeds 1978. Dire Straits was playing here as support act for Talking Heads, but you can easily hear why they became a main act soon afterwards! Excellent performance and containing two rare songs: Real girl and Me and my friends (on some bootlegs also known as Move it away). My and my friends is even extremely rare, so it is beyond any doubt this is the best sounding version ever! Great recording of Dire Straits at the very beginning. Very good sound quality.
