Transmission Impossible = 3 CD = (CD)
Formed in London in 1977 by Mark Knopfler, his brother David Knopfler, John Illsley and Pick Withers, Dire Straits were active from 1977 to 1988, and again from 1991 to 1995. The band remain of the world's best-selling music artists, with album sales of over 100 million. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018. This tripe disc CD set celebrates the huge success and popularity of Dire Straits, which still resonates today; but as the band - or at least its erstwhile leader - appear to have ruled out any chance of a reunion, this live collection goes some way to allow fans the chance of re-living the magic that was Dire Straits in concert. DISC ONE of the set features an early show from the group, recorded for FM Radio Broadcast at The Old Waldorf, in San Francisco, on 31st March 1979, shortly before the release of their second album Communique. DISC TWO, brings the story up to July 1981, when Dire Straits played at the Festival Park in Werchter, Belgium, while still touring and promoting their third record, the extraordinary Making Movies, released the previous October. DISC THREE concludes the set with the famed and marvellous set they performed in June 1988, at Wembley Stadium, as headliners of the Nelson Mandela Tribute Concert, during which the band were joined on stage by Eric Clapton.
