DS & MK / Dire Straits on ACETATE Records
« Last post by Klaus74 on Today at 11:43:43 am »
Yes this is a very special field in collecting DS and MK records.
I´m a proud owner of only one studio-acetate single record with the single-mix of So Far Away. Manaufactured at the well known UK mastering-studio The Sound Clinic. Normally those acetate-records carry a grey-coloured achive-label with a green rim. My copy has that archive label, but the prä-owner pasted it over with the regular UK-paper-single label of So Far Away. I also own the original archive-cover in black paper with a Phonogram UK sticker and a name of a woman, who possibly was an employee at Phonogram UK in that time.

To me it will be very interesting to know, in wich quantitiy such acetate-records had been made in the past. Does somebody here also own such an acetate-record. ??
A few years ago a UK trader offered many copies from an archive with a lot of acetate-records, also vinyl-testpressings and vinyl-promo-discs. There were two DS acetates and one MK solo acetate. So Far Away, Money For Nothing and Going Home-Theme of Local Hero. I guess that all three acetates had been sold. In that time i was the lucky winner of the So Far Away-offer. The trader gave me as a bonus a Walk of life vinyl-test pressing with a handwritten archive-label from Phonogram-pressing plant UK.

My special question to all other collectionists and specialist in such records. What do you think, how many acetates are in the hand of traders or collectors, and how many acetate records with different song-versions are in the archives of MK, Phonogram and so on ?? :think :think

To Jbaent and others:
Yes, OTN as a new 2-LP-Set will be pretty good, not the hybrid-source from the two concerts. Each concert at it´s own will be thrilling. But it is a personal dream by my side.

To Robson: There are various 2-CD-Sets with the Sydney Show. "Thank you Australia and New Zealand" (Pluto Records, pretty good sound but incomplete), "Australian Dream" in nice limited-edition Fold-Out-Cover (NeverEnd Records, also incomplete but good sound), "Brothers in Sydney" 2-CD-Set (Red Devil Records, very good sound and complete show WITH Ian Molly Meldrum Intro, with Press-Conference with Mark, Ed Bicknell and Molly Meldrum, with Waltzing Mathilda-Song and MKs Donations-Speech during that show).
I prefer the two 2-LP-Set Dire Straits Down Under Vol.1 and Vol.2, (Off the shelf-records ) here you have the complete Sydney-Show on 4 Vinyl-discs in very good sound and complete)
Hmm, Boston 1979 on 1-CD is also pretty good, currently a little difficult to get (I think there is no Boston on Vinyl currently available, but who know´s)
Dortmund 1980 is not so difficult to grab as CD-Album.

To me personally i value that Sydney-show as complete one, if the spoken intro is included, hosted by Ian Molly Meldrum, with the traditional Autralian folk song Waltzing Mathilda, and with the donation-speech of Australias health-minister and mark, and of course, with the press-conference with Mark, Ed and Molly Meldrum, according to the 1986 radio and TV-transfer from OZ and NZ.
Ian "Molly" Meldrum was a famous Australian Radio-Personality and music-journalist in that time.

Thanks!! :thumbsup ;)

What about 1979 studio version? There is a extract of a video clip on Arena documentary, you can see Twisting By The Pool with David on the band. Maybe can be the 4th version?
