The recording of "Love Over Gold" introduced two new musicians to record with "Dire Straits", namely: Alan Clark ( Keyboards ), Hal Lindes ( Guitar ). Oe of the guitars used by "Mark Knopfler" was a "Erlewine Automatic". The track "Private Dancer" was originally written for this album, however Knopfler decided it would better fit to "Tina Turner" ( who turned it into a world-hit ).
Note: the "Erlewine Automatic" is a hand-made guitar made by "Mark Erlewine" from Austin, Texas, who also built the Lazer guitar for Johnny Winter.
This album includes the original custom inner sleeve with complete lyrics of all songs performed by the "Dire Straits" and production/recording details
