    Is it only me or the trebles are bursting in Sultans Of Swing?

      Really good vinyl.
      Has everything a vinyl should have - warmth, cleanness etc.
      The red colour looks great.

      Highly recommended for every Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler fan.

          Sound quality 8/10.

          Music needs no review/comments.

          Highly recommended, you won’t be disappointed.

            Honestly sounds really good, clear crisp sound, a solid record. I recommend.

              Best DS pressing i've heard recently. The 1st track has more punch than than the original UK pressing of their debut self-titled album (Dire Straits, 1978) :)

                I don't understand why some people say it's a terrible pressing? Can it differ from record to record? I bought my copy today and it sound amazing! Im very happy! I don't have any picture sleeves with lyrics, the sleeves are plain white. :-/

                  I can confirm too; terrible pressing, please do not buy.

                    Sounds absolutely brilliant! It's a must to store it in top poly inner sleeves, considering the terrible cardboard the inners are made of.

                      Quite interesting... Having taken all the opinions under considerations, I still decided to include it in my collection. No regrets.
                      It looks great, sounds great, no problems.
                      As far as I am concerned this issue is well worth the money.
