    Just got the March 17th Music Direct catalog...the Dire Straits SACDs aren't mentioned at all, unless I missed it. I see no mention of their recordings whatsoever.

    Here's hoping for an actual date. Salivating at the thought...

    Ugh...this may yet join such hallowed company as MFSL's Barry Manilow and Billy Joel Greatest Hits collections.

    Keep up the positive vibes. :laugh:

    Are they still listed on the MD web site?
    Yes!

    Are they listed on the Mofi web site?
    No, but they seem to be only putting the releases up as they are released, usually after they ship
    The second Ry Cooder SACD (Boomer's Story) shipped today and it is not on Mofi's site yet.

    I actually have cash money set aside for the 4 Dire Straits SACD's. MoFi had better pull these out of the bag before something makes demands on my stash!

    I don't know, but that money could be as old as Black Beard's treasure by time MFSL releases those titles.:p

  10. Someone in another forum mentioned that the 45rpm's will come later this year. No real confirmation of this, but he has some industry connections. I hope it's sooner rather than later as I really want them all...and want them NOW! :)

    While patiently waiting for the SACDs (ordered in Dec.), I just realized I've bought no less than three Dire Staits albums on vinyl. S/T, Love Over Gold, and Brothers In Arms.
    Seven years ago, I added 4 CDs to the compilation I had, along with Communique on vinyl. All 5 from the classifieds here.
    Now it's all these years later, and MOFI has been giving us the highest quality in other artist's SACDs, so we can almost taste the excitement to hear DS' music presented in the same quality. On top of that, their best on vinyl has fallen into my lap.
    Great time to be a Dire Straits fan.

    And now I've cancelled my SACD pre order in it's entirety, deeming them personally unnecessary, as the above mentioned Love Over Gold arrived in dead quiet condition !!!
    I ordered a 2010 Grundman of Making Movies, and saved $80 in the process.

    Bye y'all. :tiphat:

    Not sure what you're asking. But the Brothers In Arms MOFI SACD was released awhile ago. This thread is discussing the upcoming Dire Straits, Communiqué, Making Movies and Love Over Gold MOFI SACDs and 45 RPM vinyl.

    Not a problem :). The Brothers In Arms MOFI SACD was released in 2013. It's a great sounding version.

    Received it (BIA). Love it. If you don't have it yet, get it.

    Glad to see I wasn't the only one that was interested in the Manilow. Why they announce these before they are sure I don't understand. His vintage hit material sounds awful and could really use their magic touch.

    Any news?

    Are these Dire Straits SACD ever coming?

    With MFSL these things can take years. Someone mentioned ordering the recently released best of Billy Joel three years ago. The masterings are already in the can, but they are waiting for the powers that be to get the go ahead.

    I pre-ordered all the LPs at 20% off. I have no plans to cancel my order. It may be years, who knows. They're great albums and I like the fact that MoFi won't put them out until they can do it right. I can wait.
