A January 31st 1978 live performance in "The Old Grey Whistle Test", a British television music show on BBC2 that ran from 1971 to 1988.*
The song is shorter, a verse was left out to have the performance fit in the program.

(Mark Knopfler)

You get a shiver in the dark, it’s rainin’ in the park but meantime
South of the river you stop and you hold everything
A band is blowing Dixie double four time
You feel alright when you hear the music ring

And now you step inside but you don’t see too many faces
Comin’ in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down
Competition in other places, but the horns, they’re blowing that sound
Way on down south, way on down south in London town

You check out Guitar George he knows all the chords
But it’s strictly rhythm he doesn’t wanna make it cry or sing
it’s an old guitar is all he can afford, when he gets up under the lights to play his thing

And Harry doesn
