"Dire Straits, Brothers in Arms - 180 Gram Double LP"

DIRE STRAITS - BROTHERS IN ARMS - 180 Gram Limited Edition 2 LP 1/2 SPEED SET - high-definition Virgin Vinyl pressing for superior fidelity. This pressing is Factory Sealed. Dire Straits biggest selling album ever - the phenomenal BROTHERS IN ARMS (No.1 UK, No.1 US). This superb album spent the grand total of 203 weeks in the UK charts and a respectable 55 weeks in the US charts (where it sold 7 million copies alone). BROTHERS IN ARMS was pretty much the success story of the 80's and was primarily fuelled by a slate of huge hit singles like the classic "Money For Nothing" (No.1 US, No.4 UK '85), "Walk Of Life" (No.2 UK '86, No.7 US '85) and "So Far Away" (No.19 US '86, No.20 UK '85). Obviously the production and Mark Knopfler's superlative guitar playing are exemplary as usual. Naturally it's far better to listen to an album like this and on 180 gram vinyl too - Mastered by Stan Ricker. Probably the biggest vinyl release since the reissue of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Really, how much bigger than Brothers in Arms can it get? One of the greatest and most popular records of all time, mastered by Stan Ricker and pressed on 180-gram virgin vinyl at the world's best pressing plant, Record Technology, Inc. The nine songs are even spread out over two pieces of vinyl (four sides) to optimize your cartridge's trackability. THIS IS HUGE!! Dire Straits' biggest-selling album - in fact, one of the biggest-selling albums worldwide of all time - Brothers In Arms helped musically define a decade. A sophisticated rock masterpiece, the 1985 album reached No. 1, stayed there nine weeks and is nine times platinum. "Money For Nothing," the song that helped immortalize the phrase "I want my MTV," hit No. 1 and won the Grammy for Best Rock Performance. Today, Brothers In Arms remains a rock essential - and now is offered as a two-disc vinyl album. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings 1.
