Comments: To be honest I was not that bothered about Dire Straits or Mark Knopfler's subsequent solo career, until he worked with Emmylou Harris, and leaped on to my personal radar.

That he was a superb guitarist was never in question, however I guess I found Dire Straits over played on the radio, and a little 'laid back' for my personal taste, mind you all that is a long time ago now.

In fact listening to this material and some of his live stuff with Emmylou Harris, I reckon I may have missed out on something very good in recent years, and am now back tracking through some great music

You are an awsome person. Thank You for making this available to me. I Would have paid for
it, indeed i tried. it is not available anywhere else. I love this man's music and model much of my own guitar playing after him. I stumbled upon his 2007 recording of Brothers in Arms and fell in love with it. it is so superior to his original. I listened to the rest of the concert on youtube had to try to add it to my collection. I did thanks to you.
