    The Walt K. Master Series returns with Dire Straits, recorded live in Oakland, California in 1992. It features the clarity that typifies Walt’s recordings. He was like a tractor beam for sound waves — if you’ve heard his tapes of The Pretenders and Bruce Springsteen (both made in 1984) or Eric Clapton (from 1990), you're familiar with the high quality of his captures.

    Being a Grateful Dead enthusiast, Walt probably saw more shows at the Oakland Coliseum Arena than at any other venue, where the band gigged 66 times. As a result, he had a sense for where the better taping ticket was located, which pays a handsome dividend in this instance. Very little of the enthusiastic arena crowd bleeds into a rich, dynamic soundscape.

    While the 15-song set presents mainstays like “Walk of Life,” “Sultans of Swing,” and “Money For Nothing,” its “night two” variety should appeal to the more discerning Dire Straits fan. Mark Knopfler implied that his blues composition “I Think I Love You Too Much” (recorded in 1990 by Jeff Healey) didn’t get played often; “Planet of New Orleans” and “Fade to Black” fall into the lesser-played category for sure. On those, the band leaned in and the audience did, too.

    The 229-date tour behind “On Every Street” was the final one for Dire Straits. Whatever the vibe off stage, the band remained focused on the music. And what good fortune to have an amazing master tape to work with: my old pal BK handled the transfer and post-production. I followed up, removing scores of extraneous noises and applying fades. It plays beautfiully and we hope you enjoy it.

    Walt passed away in 2006. Always resourceful, he guided me into the world of the Grateful Dead and mapped out the fundamentals of jazz music. Later, we shared a great fondness for Pearl Jam. Whether imparting a life lesson or loaning me his D6 so I could record U2, Walt was a terrific friend and ally. His wife Helen survives him, and she graciously allowed me to share his work. Thank you, Helen.

    And as Walt himself said, share it freely, and for free!

    Thanks a lot, downloading
  3. I didn't know this. Pretty interesting! The struggles at the beggining.. wow. I also guessed the biggest arguments would have been between Sting and Summers but it seems Copeland wasn't taking it easy either, lol.

  4. It’s off Better Than Therapy
  5. Did I ever post the list of what was rehearsed?
  6. It's the more interesting one of the two, imho...;-)
  7. I'll give it a spin this weekend, it's been a while since I played a physical DVD lol

    synchronicity 2
    don't stand
    every little thing
    walking in your footsteps
    demolition man
    de do do do
    murder by numbers
    wrapped around your finger
    invisible sun
    beds too big without you
    truth hits
    king of pain
    hole in my life
    bring on the night
    every breath
    cant stand losing you
    so lonely
    next to you

    For a while the intended opening was the voices/message/every little thing run used on the ghost tour.
  9. Now that I see the list I know you had posted it already. It's a shame they eventually didn't play Tea In The Sahara, it's one of my favs just because it's unique and different to anything else they did.
  10. I don't know whether you can see it in better than therapy or it appears somewhere else it's a very few frames either way if it does and you can 'still' it and your eyesight is better than mine there is another word in that Tea/Deathwish area. Is it Peanuts or have they crossed something out? It's not a long title if it is. If I ever find out it's Low Life, Darkness or Omega Man crossed out.....

    I read someone once saying they thought Andy struggled with guitar parts in 2007 which I'm sure they'd probably blame for Tea's absence but I can't see it or hear it. I blame Sting for all the tour's weaknesses.
