Alchemy: Dire Straits Live is a double album and the first live album by the British rock band Dire Straits, released on 16 March 1984 by Vertigo Records internationally, and by Warner Bros. Records in the United States. Recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 22–23 July 1983, the album features well-known songs from the band's first four albums, the ExtendedancEPlay EP and Knopfler's Local Hero soundtrack. Many of the songs have reworked arrangements and extended improvisational segments

There is an interesting contrast on this 94-minute double-disc live album (recorded at London's Hammersmith Odeon in July 1983) between the music, much of which is slow and moody, with Mark Knopfler's muttered vocals and large helpings of his fingerpicking on what sounds like an amplified Spanish guitar, and the audience response.

The first live album by Dire Straits celebrated the long road they’d travelled and served notice that they were on their way to becoming the world’s biggest rock band of the day. We’re reDiscovering Alchemy, which entered the US chart on 21 April 1984. The album was recorded at one of the band’s two nights at Hammersmith Odeon in London in July 1983, in the time after their first UK No. 1 with Love Over Gold and as they prepared to make the ultimate move to the very pinnacle of their profession with Brothers In Arms

Mark Knopfler stands out on guitar and vocals. If you are new to them, start with their first album, Dire Straits, or Making Movies, and move on to this. You will enjoy their rock-pop-blues sound. Dire Straits' fifth album entitled Alchemy : Dire Straits Live was released in February of 1984 on Vertigo/Phonogram in Europe and on Warner Bros here in the United States. By the time Dire Straits recorded their first (and still their best) live album, Dire Straits (spearheaded by lead singer/lead Mark Knopfler plus bass player John Illsley, guitarist Hal Lindes and keyboard player Alan Clark (who would stay with the band until their unexpected 1995 retirement) had found a new drummer Terry Williams (who was in Rockpile with Nick Lowe.
