    Skepticism is the sadism of embittered souls.

    There is something to be said in doing things wrong the exact same way every time. Itís not a good thing, but still.

    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 ...

    Dire Straits was a great live band! Saw them perform at the Meadowlands in NJ with Deborah Harry/Blondie (minus Chris Stein) as the opening act. Harry's comeback was a bomb as her voice was sadly, shot.

    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...

    Talking about voices being shot, it's very sad to hear Eric Burdon as he is today, trying very hard and good to see him out and about, but THAT voice has gone, utterly gone! Memories, memories ...

    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

    Myles -

    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.

    Thanks again.

    When it comes to Dire Straits, I'm more a Making Movies fan. The guitar solo to close "Tunnel of Love" is vastly underrated.

    The best Dire Straits album for me will always be their first.
    I love the smell of vinyl in the morning!

    Hi Myles,

    you are so right.
    Saw them several times when I was young. My place was in the 1st row, only two meters from MK. Incredible to see his fast playing.
    Still love to play the records.
