Er bestaat op dit 94-minuten tellende dubbeldisc live album (opgenomen in het Hammersmith Odeon, London in juli 1983) een interessant contrast tussen de muziek, waarvan veel langzaam en stemmig is, met Mark Knopfler zijn gemompelde vocalen en grote doses getokkel op wat klinkt als een versterkte Spaanse gitaar, en de reactie van het publiek. Het arena formaat publiek schreeuwt wild enthousiast, en klapt en zingt mee als het ook maar even de kans krijgt, alsof elk nummer een uptempo rock nummer is. En zodra er ook maar een nummer van medium tempo gespeeld wordt, zoals “Sultans of Swing” of “Solid Rock,” zijn ze in extase. Dat de introspectieve muziek van The Dire Straits veel van zijn detail verliest in een live setting maakt veel minder uit dan de nieuwe aanwezigheid die het krijgt en de anticipatie die het oproept.

Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits: A Love-Hate Relationship

On 14 April 2018, Dire Straits were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Even Mark Knopfler seemed touched by this honour, hoping to be handed the award by the likes of Bob Dylan or Eric Clapton. But in the end, Dire Straits moved into the pantheon of rockers without their star, which made for one of the saddest ceremonies in history. The absence was almost symbolic of the relationship between the lead singer and his group.

Metallica, the Path to Glory

Having sold 125 million albums across the globe, including some 30 million copies of their “Black Album”, Metallica is among the unlikeliest of pop sensations to come out of the last half-century. So how did a heavy metal band with such a convoluted song structure end up on par with music from the likes of Madonna and Michael Jackson? By following their instincts and sheer determination. Let’s return to the roots of the most famous heavy metal band in history.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
