Well, so far so good. Both Dire Straits and Love Over Gold are better than any other version in my possession. In the case of the former, I like this MFSL version better than the SHM-SACD. With Love Over Gold, I just have the original CD release, and this MFSL SACD is significantly better.

 

Tomorrow, the other two...

I just got these too.  They sound great!

 

I have always loved all 4 of these albums + Brothers in Arms.  This band has a place in my top 10 (favorite) list, and Knopfler definitely cracks my top 5 guitarist list...

I believe the red lettering means it's the remastered version, which supposedly has "© 2016 ANALOGUE PRODUCTIONS" at the back of the SACD jewel case. However, the 52:57 length in the screen cap above matches neither original 1988 CD nor the remaster exactly but is much closer to the former. That's just from what little I know of course so experts would surely correct me.

I really wonder how do these compare to the ones from mid 70s. The first listen (24-96).

Mozart By Candlelight by Chasing The Dragon records, 24/192. My wife and I were at this concert sitting close to Mike Valentine with the binaural head right over us. This recording takes me right back to that night.

Thanks for reminding me I need to fix the cover art. It’s probably not accurate.

We saw Yola in concert last night (INCREDIBLE!) and her opening act Amythyst Kiah completely blew us  away...amazing talent.  Kiah closed her set with an incredibly powerful performance of "Black Myself".  That was the gateway to this gem of an album, which I completely missed last year.
