Title: Collecting exotic Dire Straits-Mark Knopfler Vinyl
Post by: Klaus74 on April 03, 2021, 06:15:31 pm
Hello to all fellow DS MK Fans, who also like Vinyls.
I´m Klaus from Germany, Dire Straits-Fan since 1985 and i´m still collecting so called exotic vinyl-versions of the well known albums, Maxis and Singles. To me it documents a world-wide phenomenon, because music itself knows no borders. :)
I own some copies from the following countries: Israel, Turkey, Zimbabwe, Republic South Africa, South-Korea, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Venezuela, Hungary, Czech Republic, DDR (German Democratic Republic), Greece (Testpressing of OES), Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Equador, Panama. I´m still looking for more Vinyls on LP, Maxi-Single and Single-format in pristine condition. I also have the rare Japanese Promotional-12-Inch Record of Lady Writer-Sultans of Swing, and the dutch Tunnel of Love 12-Inch-Promo with the Stereo and the Mono-Mix.
So, are here some other Vinyl-fans, which also are interested in the exotic stuff. ?
I also have some white-label Testpressings from different countries, and one Acetate-Single So far away from the Sound-Clinic Mastering Studio. To me it is very fascinating to discover such exotic records. :wave

Here a picture of a Zimbabwe Dire Straits LP-Album. First Album on Vertigo Zimbabwe (South Rhodesia). The state of Zimbabwe produced vinyl records until the mid Nineties. There was a pressing-plant in Harare and a music company called ZMC Zimbabwe Music Corporation. The cover-colours differ from the other issues and the used paper is not glossy, but more rough.

This is the rare Japanese Promotional-12-Inch record by Dire Straits. Pressed through Nippon-Phonogram as a Maxi-Single for DJs only. Lady Writer / Sultans of Swing. White-Label with special Promo-Catalogue-Number and the Japanese Promotional inscriptions. To my knowledge, the one and only 12-Inch record in Japan by Dire Straits. Very hard to find. :think
The cover is a white cardboard-cover with a red 45-rpm stamp and pasted regular 7-inch sleeves from Japanese releases. Possibly handmade, but regular and released in tiny quantities with that record.

Some more exotic vinyl-gems. :)
Dire Straits - Walk of life, UK-Testpressing in Vinyl with handwritten archive-label, possibly pressed by PRS in UK. Vinyl-Pressing-plant, where Phonogram Ltd. was a client.

Dire Straits - So far away, UK-ACETATE-Reference-Disc, manufactured by The Sound Clinic, a well known Remastering Studio in UK. The prä-owner was a woman, who worked for the Phonogram Record-company in UK. She overpasted the original green-grey-coloured archive-label from Sound-Clinic with an UK-official So far away label. An Acetate-Record is a record, made of metal with a coated nitro-cellulose surface. Only a few copies were made, mostly for the artist, the producer, manager or sound-engineer, to get the first impression of the recorded work.  My Acetat-record plays the final mix of the single-version. Those records are very desirable if alternate mixes or other unknown versions had been recorded. A very rare record anyway.

Some more bizarre and obscure Dire Straits vinyls from my collection. 8)

Russian Flexi-Discs in 5-Inch Format and in different colours. Dire Straits - Les Boys, Record Label called BudKon Russia. Some more titles are known. I have actually 3 different discs.

Polish Flexi-Discs in an envelope-Cover, here the complete Album Making Movies divided into different Music-Postcard-Discs in a Set. Poland-Edition of 20 Sets only.

Those records does not offer a very good sound-quality, because of the used material, but they are really obscure.
Sometimes in the past those flexi-discs are issued as freebies in Newspapers or Magazines.

I'm very interested in acetates. I have also several test pressings but only one acetate of MFN

Very cool, thanks for sharing.

Any chance you could rip the mono mix of Tunnel of Love? I'd be interested to hear what that sounds like.
Title: Re: Collecting exotic Dire Straits-Mark Knopfler Vinyl
Post by: Klaus74 on April 06, 2021, 02:52:19 pm
Hello dustyvalentino. Yes thanks. It is to me very fascinating to find Dire Straits records from all over the world. :thumbsup

About the Mono-Mix of Tunnel of Love. I don´t have it recorded on my PC. I have to record it first for a wav.-Data,  but at the moment it does not work correctly. I assume my Music Cleaning Lab Deluxe-Sound-software does not work correctly in the moment. I used to find the mistake but it will take some time. :think
Best wishes Klaus.

For the first taste, here are some pictures of the Dutch Tunnel of love Promo-12-Inch and the French Telegraph Road Promo 12-Inch record (onesided). Both are autographed by Mark and the Telegraph Road-Record is also autographed by John Illsley.
The Dutch record is very rare and it was very long time on my want-list. The French record is rare too, but sometime with a little patience you can find it on ebay or somebody has it twice. 8)

Here are some Testpressings of regular Vinyl-records by Dire Straits.
Dire Straits - On Every Street, GREEK White-Label-Testpressing with original greek Cover.
Dire Straits - ExtendedDancEPlay, BRITISH White-Label-Testpressing from PRS-Pressing Plant with original UK-Cover.
Dire Straits - Communique, AUSTRALIAN White-Label Testpressing with an Phonogram-Archive-Cover and Production-Sheet from Phonogram Australia
Dire Straits - Money for nothing 10-Inch-Maxi-Single, BRITISH White-Label Testpressing from Lyntone Pressing-Plant, Laquer-Cut by Francis De Souza.
Title: Re: Collecting exotic Dire Straits-Mark Knopfler Vinyl
Post by: Klaus74 on April 06, 2021, 03:44:35 pm
Here the Money For Nothing 10-inch Single as White-Label-Testpressing.
Title: Re: Collecting exotic Dire Straits-Mark Knopfler Vinyl
Post by: Klaus74 on April 06, 2021, 03:54:20 pm
I also found two mispressed LP-Albums.
Dire Straits - Brothers in arms UK-Vertigo edition, but it features the Rockband RUSH on the A-Side.
Chris De Burgh - Flying Colours UK-A-M-Records edition, but it features the second half of the Money for nothing LP-Album on the B-Side.
Mispressed LP-Albums pressed in the same pressing-plant with exchanged matrixes for A and B-Sides.

Here is a Zimbabwe Misprint-Version of Twisting by the pool. Wrong lettering on the label. The record plays NOT on 45 rpm and the A-Side has TWO songs.
PS: I´m still looking for a German Lady Writer Single with misprinted Picture-Cover. The cover i´m looking for is violet and NOT blue. Please feel free to contact me, if someone has it for sale or swap. :thumbsup

Thank you. Very odd to have a mono mix by 1980.

Post by: Klaus74 on April 06, 2021, 04:25:49 pm
Yes that´s funny.
Some Hi-Fi-Enthusiasts love old or historic mono-recordings, mostly by Jazz-recordings. In the 1960s record-buyers could get one album twice, in Stereophonic or in Monophonic, like most of the Rolling Stones, Beatles, Elvis Presley LP-Albums.
Also interesting fact, that most of the Brazilian Singles and Maxi-Singles play on 33.3 RPM and NOT on 45 rpm. :think
Title: Re: Collecting exotic Dire Straits-Mark Knopfler Vinyl
Post by: Klaus74 on April 06, 2021, 04:39:43 pm
This is also a little curious record.
Mark Knopfler and Chet Atkins - The next time i´m in town. PROMOTIONAL-Single from NORWAY, but made in Holland. Two A-Sides. Red CBS-Label.
 There are also two onesided Spanish Promo-Singles by Mark and Chet on CBS-records Spain with yellow labels and nice picture-covers.

A lot of those 60s albums (eg Beatles) sound better in mono, the band themselves approved the mono mixes, stereo was an afterthought and can sound weird, drums only in one speaker etc.
Title: Re: Collecting exotic Dire Straits-Mark Knopfler Vinyl
Post by: Klaus74 on April 06, 2021, 06:00:41 pm
Yes i know those obscure early stereo records. RCA-Victor uses a very ugly electronically created stereo for the early Elvis Presley songs from the 1950s. That sounds very ugly, so the mono-mixes are the best choice on the old seven-inch-records or on the first-editions of the LP-Albums. The first real stereo-record by Elvis is the album Elvis is back from 1960.

Here is a 6-Track 12-Inch record by Dire Straits / Mark Knopfler from ARGENTINA. White Label. Side-A feat. the Twisting by the pool EP and Side-B feat. the Comfort and Joy Soundtrack-Maxi-Single.
ARGENTINA Issue only.
A Brothers in arms LP by Dire Straits from TURKEY. Turkish editions are very rare. Released there on blue-silver Philips-Label and manufactured by a Turkish pressing-plant named Plaksan. There are some other Turkish Labels like COBRA and GALA-Records with Dire Straits.
BIA was on the top of the Turkish LP-Charts, that is a little miracle, but cool to know.
Released in tiny quantities because not so many turkish people are interested in modern popular music, but it is astonishing to know, that a lot of US and UK-Groups and Stars are available in Turkey in the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties, like Beatles, Stones, Elvis, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd and Dire Straits. ;) ;)

klaus, again, welcome to this forum, and thnx for your amazing rarities, i was never a collector of the official stuff, more the bootleg side of things, but it IS interesting to see all this variety. i know a lot of fellow fans on here are on a similar trip
Hammer kollektion!
do you only collect these kinds of records? or also live recordings?
Title: Re: Collecting exotic Dire Straits-Mark Knopfler Vinyl
Post by: Klaus74 on April 07, 2021, 01:57:43 pm
Hello Pottel. Thank you.
I collect all different Dire Straits items i can get. LPs, Singles, Maxis, CD-Albums, CD-Singles, Videos, Posters, Stickers, Press-Kits from Musicjournalists, original Publicity-Photos or slides, Posters and Signs from record-stores, Bootleg-Vinyls, Bootleg-CDs, Promos on Vinyl and CD, Radioshows on Vinyl and CDs, Testpressings, original Award-Discs Golden and Platinum-Discs, and so on. I feel to be like a Dire Straits Archäologist. It is fascinating to get some of these exotic records.
And, of course, i also have still some gaps in the different collecting-fields.  ;)

This item can also be classified as a collection of it´s own. 8)
I´m a proud owner of a Golden-Disc-Award of the Brothers in arms Album from GREECE. Presented to Ed Bicknell for 50.000 sold albums in Greece. Presented through the IFPI. There are also Awards by BPI(British Phonographic Industry), RIAA (Record Industry Association of America) and other copyright organisations.
That is a special field, because it is not easy to get genuine Award-Discs. I´m very very glad to have six of those Awards in my collection, from various countries. In case of collecting US-Awards by RIAA, be aware of falsifications, FAKEs, because many collectors want the US-RIAA-Awards. To me it is not so important to have all US-RIAA, i´m also interested in other countries.

Dire Straits - On Every Street USA-Platinum-RIAA-Award for the sale of 1.000.000 copies of OES in the USA. Presented as so called "In House-Award" to a big Record-Store in Maryland named Record and Tape-Traders.
There are different Award-Types: First: Presented to the Star, the Band, or other personalized for each musician, just see my Guy Fletcher award, to the Producers, Managers. Second: Presented to Record companies, Publishers, or Radio-Stations (mostly in the US) that are the so called In House-Awards.
Dire Straits - Money for nothing Single-Silver-Disc-Award, presented to Phonogram Limited (the Recordcompany) for the sale of 250.000 copies of the single MFN in UK in 1986, BPI-Award, (British Phonographic Industries).

On the WWW you will find a very valid site by an American Award-Expert on the subject of the RIAA-Awards from the past to the present. He explaines exactly the features of an genuine RIAA-Award, the changing RIAA-logos, the time-periods, and of course, the features to detect a falsification. Very interesting to read and to know, especially for the RIAA-Award-Collectors.

Here we have another TAIWAN-issue of the BIA LP-Album, but with a slightly different cover. Here are some inscriptions in taiwanese language and the dates of 1985 and 1986. Possibly a second edition from around 1986. I have three different TAIWAN-issues of that album.
First Edition: Vertigo-Taiwan Swirl-styled-labels and thick cardboard-covers, similar like the old US-LPs
Second Edition: New Jen Sheng-Label, and a thin paper-cover folded into a thin plastic-foil
Third Edition: New Jen Sheng-Label, and a folded thin paper cover without plastic-foil and with the additional taiwanese inscriptions.
