Disappointing there is no official video release, but sometimes the official releases are disappointing anyway (OTN, ANIL, ATRR to a degree).

We are spoiled by the amount of fan made videos with soundboard on youtube, a lot of them are brilliant.

Sometimes its 'Better the devil you know' when it comes to official releases...like you say OTN and ANIL were disappointing but I do enjoy Real Live Roadrunning as it is an MK on form!!

I don't get all the disappointments with Mark's live releases. I think they are clearly a perfect representation of MK's mood at the time:

Alchemy: fresh, young, raw, success, one-night recording, no overdubs
On The Night: exhausted but perfectly excecuted, multiple shows
A Night In London: even more exhausted but happy to get rid of Dire Straits for good
Roadrunning: perfectly recorded and mixed, but even happier than before, small tour to emphasize going small scale
Last 15 years: the ultimate "I don't give a damn" MK
Roadrunning- an excellent visual record of 2006 shoe fashions.

Ah, yes. The filming style and the shaky camera is questionable indeed, and Mark's shirt is also not something to die for or write a song about :lol I find it utterly hilarious that probably the best outfit Mark had on a live show was probably On Every Street denim jacket and jeans. Can't go wrong with that :lol

That shirt though, probably XXXXL  ;D. I wonder if no one really says something to him in time when it is so obviously unfitting...

When I saw him in Hamburg very early on that tour he had a black shirt and looked very good and was in very good shape though. I always wonder why he agrees to release a show with a bad Sultans and him really being hang-overed like ANIL.. Anti to the people at the most..

A Night In London: even more exhausted but happy to get rid of Dire Straits for good

Really? I have heard this mentioned before, and I got get any impression of that, in fact I would say the opposite, because, like you say, he is happy to get rid of Dire Straits for good. During the last DS tour it was to easy for him, he needed a new challenge, and I think this show displays that, no more long solos, smaller venue, more rootsy songs, playing with top class Nashville musicians etc.

Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

Yes, I guess so in some ways. It was a very laid back affair....which we all know now that was the way it was to be! Sultans was very good....

DS was about to 'be done' and to be honest looking at it now MK looks bored with the whole deal....

Exactly, at the end of that tour he had done everything he had wanted to do as a guitarist, after that he wanted to be the songwriter who also played guitar, so a solo career was the best option, after his mentor Chet died, Mark had nothing left to prove as a player, so he focused even more as being a song writer.

To which he has excelled beyond belief...almost as if being in DS was like being in a cocoon and upon leaving it behind he found new life!!

It's true thinking on the DVD releases alone from playing the last notes on the OES tour and moving away from DS, The master had become more laid back in his styles and he seemed much happier to be playing what he wanted. In 1995/96 a new freedom had been found..The rest is history...

I think Mark understands that people really love seeing him on video. I often rewatch many of his videos for research purposes and often, well, not often — I always find exceptional compliments and good stories. Mark's videos get exceptional comments and praise, but the man himself apparently thinks that he gives people enough with music and some interviews. Good for him! A life in songs and Tracker EPK was great, but we want more!

A life in songs, the tracker EPK and even the fantastic Guitar Stories with John were awesome! But yes I agree we are all tinkering for that little bit more.....
