The Best Version of this Audiophile Classic you will ever hear!

Led by guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler, the group built their sound upon the laid-back blues-rock of J.J. Cale, but they also had jazz and country inflections, occasionally dipping into the epic song structures of progressive rock." - All Music Guide ! "...Warner's outstanding new reissue mastered by Bernie Grundman and plated and pressed at Pallas in Germany ...the sound is a knockout." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, 

Love Over Gold is a MUST own LP!!! .. 180 Gram Audiophile Quality Vinyl, Plated and Pressed at Pallas-Germany, Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analogue Tapes, Dire Straits Love Over Gold Has NEVER sounded better! You must own this, THE superior pressing of Dire Straits' Classic Album! Despite the fact that Love Over Gold contains only five songs, the powerful effect of these selections makes this Dire Straits' more underrated record.

Building on the ambitious arrangements and more sophisticated story-songs that made up the prior Making Movies, Mark Knopfler audaciously composed "Telegraph Road," a near-15-minute cut that traces society's technological evolution. Although this kind of subject matter might sound ostensibly dry, Knopfler's crisp playing and warm raspy voice, combined with Alan Clark's gorgeous keyboard runs, makes for a sweeping experience. Dire Straits added a new rhythm guitarist expanding its sounds and ambitions on the sprawling Love Over Gold. In a sense, the album is their prog rock effort, containing only five songs, including the 14-minute opener "Telegraph Road." Mark Knopfler's skilled, tasteful guitar sustains throughout atmospheric, instrumental passages. "Dire Straits emerged during the post-punk era of the late '70s, and while their sound was minimalistic and stripped down, they owed little to punk. If anything, the band was a direct outgrowth of the roots revivalism of pub rock.
