Comment J.V.Tol(OEB):

Fairly good sounding recording, taken from master cassette tapes.
There is some tape hiss though.

Just take a look at the setlist, a lot of rare songs!

This is the only recording in my collection with Dire Straits playing So far away during the On every street tour. They played it instead of Heavy fuel, which is really rare! It almost seems that they only played it once as a try-out in Birmingham and then decided to skip it forever and play Heavy fuel instead for the rest of the tour. I have heard a rumour that So far away was also played at another show during the On every street tour (maybe at one of the other Birmingham concerts I don't have?), but that mystery can only be cleared when this show comes to the surface one day (if there was made any recording at all!). So, at this point this is the only known recording with So far away.

Also rare versions of I think I love you too much and Setting me up.

Complete concert.

A must have recording in my opinion.


Enlight note:

Stunning show......great and rare setlist

Recording of the first of five subsequent nights at the Birmingham NEC.

Only recording  with "So far away" instead of "Heavy fuel".

Good sound,some tape-hiss and short tape speed problems during the second part of Sultans of swing

Don't mix-up with the “Live in Birmingham 1991” bootleg,This one is from another source with better sound and is 100% complete! Taken from mastertape.

Enjoy and Take care folks.

Covers (Thx Nico), Flaclog and MD5 included
