Additional comments DVD-Video featuring volume 19 of a large DVD project compiled by a Spanish fan. The compilation project contains TV appearances of Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler, except for broadcasted concerts. The DVD's are devided in several sections. This volume is dedicated to the documentaries. This documentary called "Clive James goes country" was broadcasted on Belgium TV in 1995. Clive James has written a song and he's going to Nashville, looking for singers who want to sing his song. Clive performs it for various famous musicians asking tips as James is far from a music talent. He plays a part with Chet Atkins, but also with Mark Knopfler, who is in Nashville at that moment and Mark invites him to actually record the song and let Clive sing the song himself. Mark arranges a studio and records the track with him. The band features some of the 96-ers including Paul Franklin and of course Mark Knopfler himself on guitar. Very interesting to see! The recording has Dutch subtitles, fairly good picture quality.
