Notes: The cover art suggests that this show was recorded "On the first european tour of '79", but the majority was taken from a radio broadcast recorded in Belgium on 1981. Sourced for CD release from LP from vinyl, has some crackles and pops. Still, it's an important part of history from the "Golden Era" of silver CD bootlegs, and to me as well as it was the first Dire Straits ROIO CD I ever obtained. * t09-t10 Cologne, Germany - February 17, 1979. <-(Info taken from

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?
