Alchemy Dire Straits Live Album – contains the band’s best known and favourite fans songs from their first four albums, the ExtendedancEPlay and the Local Hero – soundtrack by Mark Knopfler. The album cover artwork was adapted from a section of a painting by – Brett Whiteley titled Alchemy 1974. Alchemy is a hypothetical process once believed to turn ordinary elements into gold. The image of a guitar with lips held by a hand was added for the album design. The original painting, done between 1972 and 1973, was composed of many different elements on 18 wood panels.

There is an interesting contrast on this 94-minute double-disc live album (recorded at London's Hammersmith Odeon in July 1983) between the music, much of which is slow and moody, with Mark Knopfler's muttered vocals and large helpings of his fingerpicking on what sounds like an amplified Spanish guitar, and the audience response.

Live at the BBC is a live album by British rock band Dire Straits, released on 26 June 1995 on Vertigo Records internationally, and by Warner Bros. Records in the United States. The album was recorded on 22 July 1978 at BBC Studios in London, with one track recorded on 31 January 1981. The studio versions of the first six songs were released on Dire Straits. Live at the BBC was the band's third live album, preceded by Alchemy: Dire Straits Live (1984) and On the Night (1993).

But I recently picked this piece of gold up and cannot stop listening to it. The one advantage to being late to discover the works of Mark Knopfler and his group (or his later solo work, for that matter) is that I have so much to pick from and am busily backfilling with these extraordinary albums. This is one great live album, and I like live albums. Going have to obtain the video as well. Highly recommend to the uninitiated.

Of course a great album by Dire Straits. Live tracks recorded from 1978 to 1981. On this album we listen to Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits on the beggining of their carrer. David L. Bulgin "hdtv neophyte" - August 06, 2011. Dire Straits Live at the BBC. Excellent. Obviously, the songs are performed on stage rather than outside a recording booth. Yes, the acoustics are raw and the occasional missed note to be expected. Despite such shortcomings, the band delivers a more heartfelt and transcendent performance than you'll find in the studio.

Dire Straits is the debut studio album by the British rock band Dire Straits released on 7 October 1978 by Vertigo Records internationally and by Warner Bros.
