    I have this version and it mostly sounds really good. It is no MOFI issue but for the price I think it is all round fairly good...

      GZ and MPO are both capable of pressing physically high quality records but more often than not do have some quality control problems.
      Many people complain about some GZ and MPO pressings but I find the majority of mine have no issues. VMP mostly use GZ for there pressings and they are mostly very good re issues.

        I got a remastered CD (1996) today so I wonder if this album is re-remastered version. My player shows 55:17 which is close to the length mentioned in the notes. Any ideas?

          What is the difference between the MPO and GZ pressings?

            Amazing sounding 2xLP set, so fidelious, spacious, alive & in-the-room it's ridiculous. And the bass is so deep & articulate it beggars description. Great mastering, cutting & pressing at a bargain price IMHO.

              Mine was scratched in several spots but I love it so much I can live with the ticking noises.

                This is probably my best sounding record. 5 stars here.

                  Had to return my copy, because it was very very warped (arm jumping almost of the record), of centre and very dirty with lot's of dust and debris on the surface. The second one was somewhat acceptable, still a bit warped though. The sound is good.

                    The long version of Why Worry by itself is worth buying this version (or the MOFI) for me! Sounds great. I do hear some noise in certain areas as others have mentioned but not a deal-breaker for me.

                      MPO pressing is quiet where it should be and dynamic in all the right places to my ear. I have the MOFI pressings of the other albums by DS as I'm a sucker for Knopflers guitar.
