Devido ao fato desse espaço ter sido bastante visitado por europeus, venho recebendo muitos elogios, não apenas do Brasil. No entanto, como não tenho o domínio perfeito da língua inglesa, não ouso a escrever em inglês aqui. Portanto, vez por outra, pegarei carona em informações de sites internacionais.
Contudo, essas informações são do maravilhoso site>> http://www.mark-knopfler.info/

O bom é que além de passar informações sobre nossa querida banda("Dire Straits" e "Mark Knopfler"), é uma forma de divulgar sites muito legais e facilitar a vida de visitantes de outros países. =D

Espero que sirva para todos! ^^

The section is dedicated to songs which are not included in main Mark’s releases. Some songs were released as b-sides or were included in compilation albums, some of them were never released and available as live or demo versions. We hope that it helps you to find outstanding information.
