Collector Notes:

  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.
