Box set time
« on: October 07, 2019, 10:22:17 pm »
Tour over, milestone complete, must be time for a box set surely.

The vinyl re release of DS albums was great but there must be so much more that could be put out there. On vinyl would be great too.

Clearly I'm dillusional but I would be looking for a set to include a recording from each tour, bootleg source or otherwise.

I reckon they did record a load of shows we just don't know about at least from LOG tours onwards plus there must be demo and studio outtakes galore capable of release from every era of DS/MK history .

Ragpickers deserve a 180g quality vinyl release?
Of course STP should be there too....

It wouldn't surprise me if Mark put some weird clause in his will which prohibits the publishing of any unreleased material.

He was signed to a record company for many years and recorded under their dime.It is highly unlikely he would be able to prevent the old record company from releasing something recorded under such circumstances.
It is weird how there have been zero deluxe editions of his best selling(Straits)albums.
I know DS have never been back "in fashion" but a band that sold over 100 million albums must still have lots of cash rich fans who would be eager to buy expanded releases.
I hope it isn't MK blocking them but he is certainly obstinate enough:(

Hi Guy. I wondered because of all the Beatles anniversary albums and now a new singles box set why Dire Straits are not doing similar things? Surely there is a big market for it? I was speaking to a music guy who said that Straits vinyl albums still sell in massive amounts. Is it Mark who blocks Straits releases? There must be huge amounts of taped concerts that could be released for one. I would love to see something from the on every street tour come out I don’t think on the night did it justice at all. I know you can say the usual we don’t look back but the fans would love it!

There are things happening in this regard.

Makes sense only with large amount of bonus material, but chances are some boring re-releases of original albums on their way. It has to be at least something, right? Looks like Mark asks the same kind of question.

"There are things happening in this regard."

I'm trying to interpret this in a negative way because I always end up disappointed.   ::)

OTN vinyl re-release?

I would love to hear a great quality version of Planet of New Orleans from the On Every Street tour, the YouTube video's I have heard are amazing.
