Notes: Live version recorded in Paris during the Love Over Gold Tour. Originally performed with a long “reggae” intro, where Mark Knopfler teased the audience, it segued into the instrumental introduction of Tunnel Of Love. Of course, nothing of that was released. This reminds us how much missed is a full recording of Alchemy. This track appeared on the Sultans Of Swing Singles from the compilation aswell
