  • Making Movies marks a magnificent turning point in Dire Straits' career. Considered by many fans to be the group's most complete album, the 1980 set witnesses leader Mark Knopfler greatly expanding his songwriting palette and setting his storytelling amidst more complex, involving arrangements. Dire Straits also benefits from crucial contributions from Bruce Springsteen pianist Roy Bittan and the departure of rhythm guitarist David Knopfler. The songs spark with a mélange of poetry, passion, and cohesion that engages the senses and begs to be experienced again and again.

    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180-gram 45RPM 2LP set of Making Movies breathes with reference-caliber airiness, spaciousness, dynamics, and separation. Produced by Jimmy Iovine and Knopfler, the record — which contains many Springsteen-esque elements — features the cleanliness and clarity that have long been Dire Straits trademarks. The extra-wide 45RPM grooves on this edition provide previously unattainable detail, information, and soundstaging. This is what audiophile recordings are all about.

    • 180-gram 45 RPM double LP set pressed at RTI!
    • Considered to be Dire Straits' most complete album!
    • 1980 set witnesses leader Mark Knopfler greatly expanding his songwriting palette
    • Mastered from the original tapes, sublime audiophile dynamics!
