The Best of Rock and Roll Orchestra

29 June 1981, Vigoretta, Milano, Italy

QUALITY: Very good AUD Recording


During this period Dire Straits experimented a lot with their music. Adding new sounds, new arrangements and also new songs, plus some new band members.
This is the "missing link" between the old Dire Straits and the new which you can hear on Love over Gold and on Alchemy at it's peak. This is perhaps the most
interesting period with Dire Straits because of the experiments in the sound.
