Buy this reissue!!! Even if you have to sell off a power cable!

Warner bros have re-issued Dire Strait's first album as well as Communique'. They are to soon release the other albums as well. These are by far the best recordings I have heard!
I've compared this 180 gm LP to my original Warner's 1978 LP and a Vertigo records re-issue. The Warner's 180 gm LP is more musical in every aspect. It is my #1 desert island disc!
Michael Fremer will need to buy 3 copies:
One to play as his new demo standard;
the second to use when # 1 wears out;
the 3rd to keep for posterity!
I'm gonna take my old Dire Straits albums to Zia for $$ trade-in.
Get 'em.
Mike

The sound is so good, they are renaming the song "Pashas of Swing."

They will also henceforth call another song, "Pellegrino of Love."

Dire Straits first albums is one of my desert island discs. Good recording, good songs, and great performances.

Boring? C'mon, admit it. Two Against Nature's incest theme just strikes too close to home.

A favorite memory: back in 85', 86' the tv station where I worked (WTVH, Syracuse NY) was the media sponsor for Andreas Vollenweider, who was playing a local show.

Since we had tickets, a bunch of us decided to go. IIRC, Vollenweider was somehow *hot* at that point.

I sat down, the music started and...the next thing I knew it was over. My buddy Al, a photog, told me that within seconds I nodded off and started snoring. In fact, people kept rousting me because I was snoring so loudly.

I have no memory of the show at all, which is just as well, I suspect.

oh but I am.

I can think of no two bands that are as cliched and "audiophile".

pardon me while I go listen to Television and Wired.

edit.

I do love Knopflers work with Emmylou on Sailing to philadelphia
