Universal Music will issue a Dire Straits vinyl box set in November.
The Complete Studio Albums 1978-1991 will deliver all six of the band’s studio long players on 180g vinyl, starting with their superb eponymous debut, working through to the commercial high of 1985’s Brothers In Arms before signing off with On Every Street from 1991. All have been newly remastered by engineer Bob Ludwig.
Significantly, for the first time, all the albums will adopt the running order and timings of the original CD releases. So for example, all the full length versions of tracks from Brothers In Arms will be on a double LP version within this set (On Every Street is also a double).
This limited edition box features restored artwork for all the albums, and comes packaged in an attractive box set slipcase. It also comes with MP3 download codes for all music. At the time of writing this is available for only £70 on Amazon UK (see below).
The Complete Studio Albums 1978-1991 is released on 25 November 2013.
