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.

Excellent release, sound is very dynamic. My copy has MPO in the deadwax. The vocals are nice and clear i just wish all other vinyl release were as good as this.

There are non-GZ pressings out there. Recent copies might be pressed by MPO, just like mine: https://www.discogs.com/release/15174524

I've edited this release instead of making a draft. Just a misclick. Sorry.

So happy to open it up and be greeted by a lovely sounding MPO pressing. I was initially a bit worried I’d end up with the dreaded GZ!

I just got this one for my Collection -- a great pressing. People whinge about surface noise, but--it's Vinyl so you'll never get a super-clean, quiet pressing; that's the nature of the beast. What annoys me is that the reissuers are sort of lazy; this should be a Gatefold, not just the two heavy vinyl shoved in two paper sleeves in one jacket. I've now put the Vinyl outside of these in rice paper sleeves (inside the jacket, keeping original inners) but it's still a pain to get them in and out of the main LP jacket as there's so much stuffed in there. Ah, well, I'm buying Vinyl to play it, not hoard it like a snob collector; the jackets can fall to bits - I don't care - as long as the Vinyl survives, that's fine.

Sound quality is very good on this one. No problems with my copy at all, though like others, I'd have preferred a single LP to this double format. Compared to my Pallas pressed DS audiophile remasters, the sonics compare reasonably enough, the laquers were cut by Bernie Grundman and Bob Ludwig, so maybe that explains that. There was also an RTI pressing in this format, could it be the same sourcing? GZ (Czech republic) pressings seem to be a hit or miss, often the quality is there, lamentably the consistency is not.

A2, Money for Nothing, has pronounced scratching noise in the right channel about a minute into play, although no visible defects show. I will replace with another copy, hopefully a one-off pressing defect.
