Since vintage hi-fi expert Colin Paine set it up two years ago, Vinyl Sessions has raised thousands of pounds for Friends of Harrogate Hospital charity through its monthly events at Starling bar and cafe in Harrogate.

Even when lockdown forced it to go online, it has still managed to raise another £1,000 as it has continued to shine a light on some of the world's greatest music acts.

The next Vinyl Sessions event tonight, Wednesday, July 22 will look at The Best Of Dire Straits & Mark Knopfler: Private Investigations, which was first released in 2005.

Colin Paine said: "We have featured some amazing Dire Straits albums on our live events but this time we enjoy a compilation of greatest hits which flows from the early days of early 79 right up to Mark Knoppler’s later compositions."

1. Sultans of Swing

2. Love Over Gold

3. Romeo & Juliet

4. Tunnel of Love

5. Private Investigations

6. Money for Nothing

Side 2

2. walk of life

3. On Every Street

4. Boom, Like That

The action will start at 7.30pm with organiser and hi fi expert Colin Paine, followed by a full profile from “Professor of Pop” Graham Chalmers of the Harrogate Advertiser along with some video action from Jim Dobbs during playback of the album in full about 8.00ish.
