Theo, I heard the redbook cd of this and I like it a lot.
I find that Knopflers solo work grows on you the more you listen to any of the recordings.
When I first heard Ragpickers Dream and Sailing to Philidelphia, I though they were decent, but after another listen or two, these releases are very good imo.
I only listen in two channel, but wanted to hear the sa-cd version of this hybrid multi channel disc.
I beleive that this is the first sa-cd version of Knopfler or Dire Straits, but whith Dire Straits released on the Mercury label in Europe, maybe we will see some of that music also released on sa-cd.
