Fine, but get Alchemy
18 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Dire Straits are my favorite group, and so I love the music on this tape. But let's be honest, most of the "videos" consist of people pretending to play their instruments. That just gets kind of old for me after a while. If you're going to buy a Straits video, I recommend seeing/hearing Straits in their purest form: live. Alchemy (1984) is my favorite; On the Night (1993) isn't bad.
