5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 7 July 2000

This review is from: Alchemy - Dire Straits Live - Two CD Set (Audio CD)
Ahhh Alchemy. A superb live album and a showcase of Mark Knopfler's wizardry on a Strat. But it's not only him who's on form. Mr. Terry Williams (Drums) is absolutely superb, as is John Illsley (Bass). The others deserve an honorable mention too but it's these three that really shine. It all starts with a much-changed Once Upon A Time in the West. As many of the others on the album, it clocks in at above 10 minutes. It never becomes long winded, though. In fact, many prefer the live renditions of these tracks to their studio-recorded counterparts.
There has to be a weak point, though, and for me that's Tunnel of Love. It's a superb track but Knopfler's guitar work isn't up to his usual standard, a shame. I recommend the video over the CD, you get more of a feel that you were actually there. Either way, you're sure to find Alchemy a superb album.
