A bit OT, but the Dire Straits "Love Over Gold" was being thrashed in every audio shop as a demo of CD sound when I started to get into sound again, way back when. Even on the primitive Philips player of the day it impressed, a pleasant memory ...
A great list! Love Over Gold is a great album, and Telegraph ranks as one of my favourite tracks, if not THE favourtite. Not too keen on the title track, however...

Love Over Gold is one of my favorite albums and use it frequently as a demo in my system (Private Investigations)
Mark Knopfler is still great. He frequently performs annually in Berkeley
There's ALWAYS another Steve Williams BUT there's only "oneobgyn"

Thanks! Got a few on the list, but the 'wish list' just got a little longer...sigh
I was curious about your comments regarding the bass on Mulligan Meets Webster. I think I can understand what you are reporting. Until recently in my system, the bass was subdued but recent changes have definitely resulted in a different presentation with more balanced sound. In fact, I used my spare copy to dial in speaker placement. It's a great performance and other than the occasional ticks that seem to come with the ORG releases, a great pressing.
The best Dire Straits album for me will always be their first.
I love the smell of vinyl in the morning!
