Alchemy (live) [VINYL]
About this deal
Newly remastered versions of Alchemy and On The Night, both of which are currently unavailable on vinyl (Alchemy was last pressed in the mid-eighties, On The Night was last pressed for the original release in 1993). Sultans of Swing and Telegraph Road being my most fav's rock guitaring at it's best - great for Christmas for beginner guitarists (humour). Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive. It's one of those live albums that was edited down from a much longer concert, or even concerts, and feels a bit short. In terms of media it used everything from feathers and part of a bird's nest to a glass eye, shell, plugs and brain in a work that becomes a transmutation of sexual organic landscapes and mindscapes.
Love over Gold", which had been released as a separate single in 1984, was added into the track list for the CD release, and the fade outs between sides 1 and 2 and sides 3 and 4 have been removed.That said, this is an excellent live album and the performances are infinitely superior to the live (though not very a-live) tracks that came bundled at the end of a so-so 'greatest hits' type release a few years ago (I think it the 'Sultans of Swing' compilation). Für Abwechslung sorgt die bis dahin unveröffentlichte Rock 'n' Roll-Nummer "Two young lovers" mit Boogie Woogie-Piano und Mel Collins' heißen Sax-Parts. Von den Gründungsmitgliedern standen nur noch Knopfler selbst und Bassist John Illsley auf der Bühne.

Alchemy: Dire Straits Live is a double album and the first live album by the British rock band Dire Straits, released in March 1984 by Vertigo Records internationally, and by Warner Bros. EX (Excellent): The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening of sound quality.That's why each of our records is first meticulously cleaned and then not just inspected once, but twice, before a sample is play-tested to make sure it sounds as good as it looks. The album cover artwork was adapted from a section of a painting by Brett Whiteley titled Alchemy 1974. I'm not a lover of live albums, they always seem to me to be good music ruined by screaming and shouting.
The reworking of most of their songs, with exquisite keyboards and lengthy guitar solos, blends them together in such a way, that anybody can see the lines joining the dots and the whole picture. Und auch dass Knopfler seinen Liedern viel Zeit zur Entfaltung ihres ganzen Charmes zugestand, kennzeichnet das Schaffen des Briten. The vinyl was in great condition and there was only one slight distortion other than that incredible sound quality and I have literally listened to it over and over!It is followed by the brief "Carousel Waltz" intro and standard version of the song (with improvisation sections). Wunderschön ist schließlich "Going home", ein Knopfler-Song aus dem Soundtrack zum Film "Local hero". Ruhlmann concludes, "The CD version of the album contains one extra track, "Love Over Gold," which adds a needed change of pace to the otherwise slow-moving first disc. Don’t think I abused it too much when I was a kid, just recorded to cassette and played it in the car.
