Dire Straits 1978-01-29 Roundhouse, London, England

Dire Straits: Roundhouse, London, England, 1978-01-29

Opening act for Talking Heads!

Previously uncirculated very good sounding Hans de Vente
("The Madtaper") master audience tape recording from his archive!

Mr. Hans de Vente being a huge fan, supporter and friend of the
Talking Heads had the expert foresight to also tape the opening band
on this night, resulting in this historic audience recording!

Earliest known LIVE recording of Dire Straits in existence (so far, at least)!

Lineage: Transfer by Hans: Cassette > Nakamichi Dragon > Audacity > WAV > FLAC.
