Says Rolling Stone: "Mark Knopfler made Dire Straits one of the most successful bands of the Eighties with virtuoso musicianship, wry humor, and a knack for writing popular music that didn’t sacrifice either — as evidenced on hits like 'Sultans of Swing,' 'Money for Nothing,' and 'Romeo and Juliet.'"

On Every Street, the sixth and final Dire Straits album amazes, if only for its apparent refusal to exploit the success of its predecessor, the chart-topping 1985 masterpiece Brothers in Arms, writes reviewer Bill Forman for Amazon.com. "Sure, radio programmers could hear echoes of 'Money for Nothing' in 'Heavy Fuel,' or traces of 'Walk of Life' in 'The Bug,' but Mark Knopfler wouldn't have waited six years to follow up the band's megaplatinum Brothers in Arms if that was all he had in mind. Instead, he took time out to play with the Notting Hillbillies and Chet Atkins (while most British guitar heroes idolize American blues, Knopfler obviously has a thing for Nashville).

"On Every Street finds those influences complementing the late-night melancholy that's always been Dire Straits' specialty. Instead of Sting singing 'I Want My MTV,' fans got Hillbillies pedal steel player Paul Franklin adding to the high-lonesome sound of the quite infectious title track and the epic 'Planet of New Orleans,' along with meditations on the mistreatment of striking miners in the cinematic 'Iron Fist,' and some of Knopfler's most haunting guitar work throughout. The result can be seen as a dignified — and, at times, even inspiring — farewell album." — Amazon.com

I have to give this a 5 star rating just because an original copy of this LP is so hard to find in new condition and expensive. Not to mention rare there must have only been a couple thousand pressed when it was originally released way back in the 1990's as an import pressing on LP.

Both versions of the LP are different with this LP being cut hotter and cleaner. Spread out over two LP's at 33 RPM you get the sound to the fullest effect. There is no extra material in this set. Get it while you still can. My pressing was nice and flat. Even if you have an original you will want this too. Mastered at Grundman and pressed at Pallas. Recommended ++++


Nice sound; terrible pressing

Reviewer: Rudy / Record Collector Guide
I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to this release--my second favorite Dire Straits album (behind Love Over Gold). Unfortunately, after playing side one, I was very disappointed with the very low quality pressing. And indeed, the more I played, the worse it got. Even my second copy of this set was full of flaws. Blame our "friends" at GZ Vinyl. Looking at the discs from both sets closely, both have visible marks and scratches on them. (Pics to be posted at our site soon.)

What a shame. To release something so nicely mastered by Chris Bellman at a vinyl facility that I've further discovered has a terrible reputation for quality.

The "masterminds" behind this release: Universal Music. The ones who released some terribly dull sounding vinyl "back to black" several years ago. Shameful.

And don't bother with the download code: it will not work in the USA.

Avoid this set. Great sound buried beneath numerous clicks and pops.
