WANTED: Rare promo CDs Mark Knopfler / Dire Straits
« on: September 06, 2022, 06:41:55 pm »
Always looking for new items to add to my collection, among rare promo CDs.

If you have any extra copies or simply feel ready to sell some, please send me a message and we might close a deal!

Note: Only officially released promos, no bootlegs!

Hello, i currently have a BIA Promo-CD-Single Live in 86 version for sale or swap. Conditon of disc is very good with some slight marks, original album-case with some light scratches, booklet is fine. The disc itself has a small oval-shaped sticker on labelprint.
I also offer it on ebay eu. Just have a closer look at it, maybe we can make a deal or a cool swap with other valuable items, i´m looking for.
That means: I have some gaps on the field of Vinyl-Bootleg sets, some Radio-Show-sets on vinyl or acetate or vinyl-whitelabel-testpressings from the pressing-plants.
We are fools to make war

The Live in 85/86 limited editions are not listed as promos, but more regular singles.. already in my collection...

Hi, ok.
There is another stunning item on Ebay Germany. A trader has a Promotional CD-V Single Money For Nothing. Two audiotracks and one video-track. It is a  promo CD-V-Single from around 1985. He offered it to me on discogs, but he wants lots of money for it: 1799 Euro for a CD-Video-Disc. That makes my Golden- and Platinum-Award-Discs by Dire Straits to be cheap bargains.  ;D
OK, to take this case more seriously. What do you think about such an offer for that CD-V-Promo Single in 5-inch-format of Money for nothing. ??

Now, the trader reduced the price for the MFN Promo CD-V to 1299 Euro.

Very high indeed. Would never spend that amount on one item, regardless of the rarity.
Is it complete with sleeve? I have seen another version out before missing that...

Hi, i send you some answers via ebay.
Yes, there is a plastic-slim case, which is known for such Maxi-CDs with the special Promo-Cover. Looks genuine to me, anyway. That disc is silver-coloured and not golden, like the other 5-inch CD-V-Discs.
I think it is genuine and manufactured in Germany, in Hannover-Langenhagen, the first CD-pressing plant in the world in Germany. All other CD-V-Discs had been made in UK through PRS-Phonogram-Record-Service in UK via PDO, also the variants with the NTSC-System for the US-machines.

Yes, the suggested price is a price between heaven and hell, as we in Germany say. A few years ago i have followed such a disc, and according to my knowledge it was a seller or a collector from France, who buys it for around 700 Euro, as i can recall.  :think
For that money i will buy some cool Gold- or Platinum-Award-Discs by Dire Straits, immediately. ;D

I also have a 3-LP BOX-Radioshow twice. Westwood One-Radionetwork - Superstars in concert-edition from 1988. Three records in near mint-condition, with sheets and BOX. Box has a seamsplit on the left side, but is also in good shape. Content: The Nelson Mandela gig from Wembley-Stadium, with Eric Clapton. I have it twice, so i can offer it to all interests in rare and curious vinyl-editions. I´m also interested to swap it for other rare Radioshows on vinyl, Acetate- or Vinyl-Testpressings by Dire Straits, or some much rarer Bootleg-LP-Editions. Please feel free to contact me.
