Listened to Communique tonight...it is everything that everyone is saying. Super album with excellent SQ. The Dire Straits MFSL's are a no brainer for anyone that likes this band.

Did you ever get a chance to go back and listen to Love Over Gold. I got my replacement copy and it has the exact same two issues.
Does anyone else have this MoFi Gain 2 45rpm release of Love Over Gold that can check their copy for comparison to the two issues I noted above?
From my perspective of my two copies, it appears to be a physical defect in the pressing in track 1 and possibly a remastering defect in track 5.
MusicDirect said they would listen to my return and give feedback but did not. They now said they will not and cannot provide any further support.
MoFi gave a weak and generic response and referred me to MusicDirect for support.
Now I have emailed Rick at RTI asking for his input. He is listed on their website for tech support. That has only been a couple days so maybe he will reply.
It would be great to get some feedback of the other 8000 or so owners of this record out there.
Just to let you know that I got Love Over Gold yesterday (no. 1556) and had the same issue with Telegraph Road - except it lasted a lot longer than 32 seconds and will still evident throughout the whole track.
Private Investigations had a similar issue.
Evidently a very bad pressing - I noticed that the tonearm on my turntable was jiggling left to right at all times.
The second LP was perfect though.
Extremely disappointed though - this was my first MoFi purchase and at AUD $95 it wasn't exactly cheap.
