Dave noted in April 2015:
Here’s something special I recently was given; the great Dire Straits recorded at the Palladium in NY from the fall of 1979. I knew of a common boot of this show but had never heard it so with the help of our resident knopflerphile; Enlight, he was able to get me a copy of that boot to compare. I was afraid the recording I had was the same as the one used for that. To my delight, my new version of this sounds worlds better. Anyway, the quality is quite good for a 1979 audience recording. I know it comes from a 1st gen copy and although I can’t say for sure, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was recorded from the front of the loge or balcony. I saw them this same week at the Calderone Concert Hall but have never seen a tape of that. I’m sure the sets were about the same. -Original
