Without a doubt this is the best Mark Knopfler Bootleg i've heard in a while and it's from a rare charity concert. A great soundboard recording, directly from Mark's in-ear monitor, which makes his voice and guitar pristine clear. The lineup is: Mark Knopfler, Guy Fletcher, Glenn Worf and Richard Bennett performing without a drummer for a sold out crowd at Boothbay Harbor's Opera House. Mark plays an amazing version of Mabletown and Whoop de doo is simply breathtaking, all among other songs he'd never played live before.

Part 1 Part 2

  6. The "Opera House" is a wood clapboard building in Mid-coast Maine. Main hall seats 400. If only I'd known of its existence in 2006. Right around the corner from where I spent so many summers...
