That Dire Straits’ introspective music loses much of its detail in a live setting matters less than that it gains presence and a sense of anticipation. An exquisite live recording, that works perfectly for both keen fans and new listeners and set the bar high for any live recording since. Three more songs were recorded live but not included on the official album release: "Industrial Disease," "Twisting by the Pool" and "Portobello Belle".

saw new DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases of the concert with surround sound mixes prepared by Chuck Ainlay and the original video footage digitally enhanced and cleaned by Dick Carruthers. Alchemy: Dire Straits Live was remastered and reissued with the rest of the Dire Straits catalogue in 1996 for most of the world outside the United States and was remastered and re-released in the USA on 8 May 2001. Von "Communique" (1979) und dem selbstbetitelten Erstlingswerk offerieren Knopfler und Konsorten nur jeweils einen Song.The album cover artwork was adapted from a section of a painting by Brett Whiteley titled Alchemy 1974. Recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 22–23 July 1983, the album features songs from the band's first four albums, the ExtendedancEPlay EP and Mark Knopfler's Local Hero soundtrack. An expanded version of On The Night to include tracks performed during the tour which have never been released, taken from multitrack recordings of shows in Nimes, Rotterdam and Paris: ‘Tunnel Of Love, ‘Telegraph Road’, ‘Sultans Of Swing’, ‘Two Young Lovers’, ‘When it Comes To You’, ‘I Think I Love You Too Much’. It’s coming as an expanded pressing in a live Dire Straits box set in early November, along with On The Night, also expanded, At The BBC and Rainbow 1979.

It's a shame they never took the chance when remastering to do a proper job of the fade in to Expresso Love which seems to contain 30 seconds or more of the tail end of 'Industrial Disease' - some other dodgy fades between tracks.Related Artists - Brendan Croker, Brewers Droop, Chris White, David Knopfler, John Illsley, Mark Knopfler, The Notting Hillbillies.

Von den Gründungsmitgliedern standen nur noch Knopfler selbst und Bassist John Illsley auf der Bühne.

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.
