This is a show Dire Straits did in the Old Waldorf, San Francisco. It has been broadcasted on the radio and there are many bootlegs,
all with different setlists.

This bootleg, created by Button Recordings, has all available songs, with best available sound (soundboard/FM), mixed together from several sources in the right order.

Tracks # 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13 are taken from the new source
Track # 3 beginning from the bootleg On the road to Philadelphia, rest from Old Waldorf 1979
Track # 4 is taken from the bootleg Old Waldorf 1979
Tracks # 7, 12, 14 are taken from the bootleg Bijou
Track # 9 is taken from the bootleg On the road to Philadelphia

Additional comments (from original info-file):
After having the bootlegs Bijou, Old Waldorf 1979 and On the road to Philadelphia, 8 tracks of this concert appeared in perfect sound quality, better than any of these previous bootlegs. All the songs are combined to make one complete bootleg of it which resulted in " The new Old Waldorf ". Really a great one with the best available sound on all tracks.

This blog is merely an index with public links for audio recordings of independent origin (ROIO) which have not been officially released. No audio or video content is hosted here. We only provide meta information files for the ROIOs. If you're an artist (or a legal representative of an artist or its estate) and you don't want your ROIOs shared on this blog for FREE among your fans, you may opt out any time by sending e-mail to the site admin. We will then put you in our list of not allowed artists. This will halt all sharing of your ROIOs in this blog within minutes. BTW, the ROIOs exist, you can't make them vanish. So, why not let your fans get them for free from one another instead of having to purchase them from commercial bootleggers on auction sites?
