    The most eagerly anticipated release from Dire Straits - Alchemy Live has finally been restored to pristine high definition visual clarity, remixed in PCM Uncompressed Stereo and Digital 5.1 Surround Sound - available on DVD and Blu-ray for the very first time. 'Alchemy' was a double live album originally released 12th March 1984 with accompanying VHS. It debuted in the UK Top 3, and spent all but one week of its first seven months in the top 40 and went on, in the afterglow of `Brothers In Arms' to spend more than three years in the top 100. In Australia, the album reached the twenty-second position of the best selling albums of 1984. The strong Australian association does not stop there - the cover image is taken from a work by Brett Whiteley. This phenomenal sales history and critical acclaim has solidified Alchemy as one of the most revered live recordings of all time. Featuring the seminal hits `Sultans Of Swing' and `Romeo and Juliet' plus unique encore performances of the Ivor Novello Award-winning `Going Home' from the soundtrack to the film `Local Hero'. Demonstrating faultless musicianship, this is a true recording of excerpts of one Dire Straits performance, containing no re-recording or overdubs of any kind. The video has been painstakingly restored from the original film by archive restoration specialist and acclaimed live concert director Dick Carruthers (Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Van Morrison). Audio is remixed by Chuck Ainlay, winner of the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Surround Sound album for his surround production on `Brothers In Arms'. Bonus features include 2 live TV performances from The Old Grey Whistle Test of `Sultans Of Swing' and `Tunnel Of Love'. Plus a rare BBC Arena documentary including exclusive interviews with the band and rehearsal footage. Includes a link to download MP3's of every track on the Alchmey album.
