Dire Straits – Brothers In Arms (2xLP)
- Release details
There are hit albums. There are blockbusters. And there are Brothers in Arms. One of the world's best-selling albums, it catapulted Mark Knopfler and band to the top and won two Grammy Awards, including Best Mixing.
Brothers In Arms is the kind of epic album that few come along in a decade. Always a reference work for audiophiles, MFSL is now releasing the sonic masterpiece as a 180g vinyl LP at 45 rpm. Brothers in Arms has never sounded as realistic, balanced, dynamic and multi-layered as on this release.
MTV may have contributed to the album's enormous success, but it's the excellently crafted songs and the unforgettable instrumental playing of the musicians involved that make it a classic. Mark Knopfler's guitar riffs and Sting's vocals in Money for Nothing remain unmistakable to any music lover.
