There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But alas, here's the dilemma I've got. Firstly I looked at the vinyl release as I'd love the complete Dire Straits collection on Vinyl buy oh hell, look at that price. Also it looks like the download is CD quality only?? Why not a hi-res from studio master tapes releaase???? Am I getting a digital remastering? If so, what's the point of the vinyls???
Then the CD collection, identical to the Vinyl edition but minus the download with a major problem for a box set.
WHERE ARE THE RARE TRACKS and BONUS tracks to make this an absolute no brainer must have for long time fans???? Absolutely no where to be found.
Where's the extra bits of Dire Straits all us fans now and love?? Why not include an extra disc with all those hard to find B-sides and rare tracks????? Also for that matter, where's 'TWISTING BY THE POOL?' For crying out loud, what a let down. I want 'East Bound Train.', I want 'Kingdom Come.' etc etc.
Seriously, it's nice to have the albums given an upgrade over the previous releases but honestly, there's nothing here for the hard core fan to really get excited about except for having a nice new vinyl collection at last and put your originals into collector storage.
Most annoyed, hoping a rarities disc might be released one day and if it is please let me know fellow fans.
In a word, BORING and only 2 stars as there's nothing to WOW about in this box set at all.

The audio has not been remastered (at least I hear no difference in the tracks from the first CD releases) but the studio engineering is still quite good. Some of these tracks would have benefited from a redo, but so be it. The CDs all worked fine, and sound better than I remembered (it's been many years since I listened to the early tracks). The presentation on this box is minimal: you get the CDs in cardboard sleeves and nothing else. Still, as a way to get early Straits albums, this is a good box to pick up (CD only; I reserve comments on the LPs until I give them a try!).
"Brother in arms" e "On every street" são discos duplos e possum capas simples. Tenho uma cópia do "Brothers in Arms" 180 g que possui capa dupla e material gráfico muito melhor.
Já a entrega me deixou bem decepcionado. Enviaram o produto que é pesado em uma envelope bem fininho de plástico. Por causa disso todos os cantos ficaram amassados, e o plástico que sela o produto em si estava todo rasgado, como se já tivesse sido aberto. Decepcionante.
