℗© Red Lightnin' Ltd 1989
Made in EnglandLiner Notes:
"The Droop began in the late sixties with Big Ron and various other players being dragged out of the pub in High Wycombe area and forced to play. In 1971 the situation became serious and they became one of the hardest gigging bands in the country and unable to spend much tme in the pub.
An album was released which reflected the live stage act and enjoyed some commercial success, but circa 1973 times changed and new men arrived in the band.
At an audition in the Nags Head, High Wycombe, one man turned up with a red Gibson guitar, a flat hat and a northern accent. He plugged his axe in and immediately made a great impression. The job was proffered without haste and the deal struck over a round or three of beers. Mark Knopfler was now in the band!
Around this time the Droop were in the middle of recording some tracks in the middle of nowhere, that being the only place that would tolerate them. the very same tracks were done with Mark and a new bass player—Steve Norchi, with production help from Dave Edmunds. Some of these tracks are featured on this album.
Brewers Droop began as a good rocking Cajun band and progressed to what you hear on this disc. They are today set to rise again from the pub, sorry the shadows—so watch out, but meanwhile listen and enjoy this record and hear the fledgling Mark Knopfler cultivate the sound that was to make Dire Straits a worldwide success story."Barcode and Other Identifiers
