Additional comments Video containing a rare recording of Dire Straits live at the The Bayou. This comes from the original video recordings done by the owner of the venue. They were recovered for a documentary of that venue, and donated to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum who put a big watermark on the video as can be seen in the impression picture above. Video is in black and white and filmed very static. Good sound quality. Dire Straits played two dates at the venue and also two shows a day by then. Unclear from which of the two dates this concert actually is but at least it is one of the first soundboard recordings from the beginning of Dire Straits. Upgraded with special AI (Artificial Intelligence) software which results in sharper video quality.
