New Dire Straits 45RPM reissues from Mobile Fidelity
Sorry this took me awhile! I have finally had the opportunity to listen and compare these (4) new titles from MOFI.
Love Over Gold
These are the JUST RELEASED titles on 45RPM from MOFI.
I was able to compare, (so far), Dire Straits and Love Over Gold with my various copies. I have the US, UK and German first pressings and Japanese pressings of both.
I have always thought that the German pressings were the best followed closely by the UK pressings.
These new MOFI's are ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!! Super duper quiet and completely flat. The music just explodes from the black background. And the BASS...wow! Wide, open soundstage with exquisite layering and texture. These are simply the BEST pressings that I have ever heard from the Dire Straits catalog...period.
I have listened to the other two, (Communique & Making Movies), but haven't had the chance to compare them to my other copies. I have several different versions of each, but time has caught up with me. From just the listening sessions, I am pretty confident that they will too be better than any of the others.
They are already sold out at many places, but they are going to repress them.
All of my copies were between 100-200 as far as serial numbers go, so I do have some very early copies.
If you can find them, buy them. It's a no brainer.
ONE OF MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS!!!
