Robert Palmer At The BBC is a recording of the singer and his band performing live in concert at the Hammersmith Palais in London on 31 May 1983.
I remember Frankie Miller, Jess Roden and Robert Palmer being grouped together in the mid 1970s as British soul/blues/rock singers who deserved more success. Palmer is the one who managed to get most attention but even he didn’t get the rewards he deserved.

Alchemy is the first live album released by Dire Straits.
It was recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on the 22nd and 23rd July 1983. It was released in March 1984.
Dire Straits may not have the best image in the 2010s but listening to this excellent album shows why they were so popular in the 1980s.

Serious Moonlight is a recording of the David Bowie concert in Vancouver on September 12, 1983.
It is available as an official live DVD and an unofficial live album CD. I would like David Bowie to tidy up this mess and release it as an authorised CD as there is definitely a place for it within the group of David Bowie live albums.
I haven’t been featuring live concert DVDs without an accompanying CD but I thought I’d make an exception. I’m not sure about the legality of the Serious Moonlight live album but it’s being sold by Play.com and cduniverse.com so I’m guessing that it has a grey status. Legal but not approved by David Bowie.
