Dire Straits - Alchemy Live mp3 album

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.

This is a recording of excerpts from one Dire Straits performance. As it contains no re-recordings or overdubs of any kind, there are accasional stage 'buzzes'. Recorded, Rolling Stones Mobile, July 1983. Mixed at Air Studios, London, November 1983. Printed in The Netherlands.

The first live album by Dire Straits celebrated the long road they’d travelled and served notice that they were on their way to becoming the world’s biggest rock band of the day. We’re reDiscovering Alchemy, which entered the US chart on 21 April 1984. The album was recorded at one of the band’s two nights at Hammersmith Odeon in London in July 1983, in the time after their first UK No. 1 with Love Over Gold and as they prepared to make the ultimate move to the very pinnacle of their profession with Brothers In Arms
