Dire Straits vinyls on different labels worldwide
« on: June 20, 2022, 02:02:51 pm »
Yes, sometimes it is funny and, of course thrilling to see in wich countries Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler vinyl-records had been released. There are also some Label-company variations.

The main company was Phongram Limited with it´s label VERTIGO-RECORDS. DS and MK vinyls are on that label in most of the European countries, like UK, Germany, Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Norway or Finland.
In the United States such records had been released through Warner Brothers Records.
I have found some different labels for DS and MK records from some countries around the world: Melodija in the former Soviet Union, Balkanton in Bulgaria, Tonpress in Poland, Supraphon in Czech Republic, Opus and Gong-Records in Hungary, Philips in Yugoslavia, Philips, Gala, Cobra-Label in Turkey, Mercury in Kenya, Vertigo, Philips, Polydor, Trutone and ZMC (Zimbabwe Music Corporation) in Zimbabwe (former South Rhodesia), Philips and Vertigo in Ecuador, in most of the other countries of South-America DS and MK records are also on Vertigo-records, Vertigo also in India, Vertigo in Singapore, Vertigo, Pop-Records, New Jen Sheng, Major, Yi Yin in Taiwan, Vertigo in South-Korea, WEA and Philips in Bolivia, Amiga in the former German Democratic Republic (DDR) and so on.

Yes it is intersting for the worldwide collector to see some unusual or exotic record-labels. Some states are to me as a worldwide collector unknown in the case of Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler releases, like Lebanon, Pakistan, Iran (Persia), Egypt, Romania, Nigeria, Democratic Republic Congo, Angola, Cuba, Barbados, Paraguay, Costa-Rica or other states in the west or east. Possible to discover some releases in the near future.
