Amazing soundboard recording! Taken from the original bootleg "Secrets in the closet". When I bought this bootleg, I was almost sure that it would be just another copy of the famous Houston show from 17th August 1985.
But to my big surprise, it sounded a bit different and I could not directly figure out from which recording date this recording was. The back cover of the CD said it was recorded in San Antonio, 16th August 1985. But since I never heard that recording before, I just could not believe it. And then, at the beginning of "Walk of life", it is Mark Knopfler himself who is revealing the mystery: "This is where San Antonio is doing the walk, alright." And, at the end of "Brothers in arms" Mark says: "Thank you San Antonio, thank you!". Amazing! This is the real San Antonio recording in contrary to all other bootlegs that are called "San Antonio" and are actually featuring the Houston recording. Great sound, great versions and complete show! -Original
