Dire Straits

Portobello Belle (4:32)

Not actually from Communique but from a much later live concert. A gentle song from Mark's time in London with lyrical descriptions of a Notting Hill street scene that really come to life if you listen carefully in the dark! The blind man, the heroine and even the second-hand and antique clothes market are all evoked perfectly but with incredibly few words.

And the stalls are just the side shows
Victoriana's old clothes
