Live at the BBC" was the final album on Mark Knopfler's contract for Dire Straits, and it was the third completely live album to be released by the band (first being Alchemy and second On the Night). This album consists of eight songs, the first seven recorded in 1978 and the eighth in 1981. I must admit that I was not a fan of this album on first hearing, but I grow fonder of it with every listen.
