1985’s Brothers In Arms Has Sold More Than Nine Million Copies in U.S. Alone
Probably the biggest vinyl release since the reissue of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Really, how much bigger than Brothers in Arms can it get? One of the greatest and most popular records of all time.
Dire Straits’ biggest-selling album – in fact, one of the biggest-selling albums worldwide of all time – Brothers In Arms helped musically define a decade. A sophisticated rock masterpiece, the 1985 album reached No. 1, stayed there nine weeks and is nine times platinum. “Money For Nothing,” the song that helped immortalize the phrase “I want my MTV,” hit No. 1 and won the Grammy for Best Rock Performance. Today, Brothers In Arms remains a rock essential.
“I received the 180 G 2 album set of Brothers in Arms and wanted to tell you that your assessment was spot on. The instruments are sharper and the whole soundstage is much more full than the studio pressing. It also seems as if there is more music. I do not remember the extended lead in for the first song on side two (“Walk Of Life”) as well as the trailing notes for the last song on side 3 (“Ride Across The River”). I’m not a big fan of bloated bass, and even though the bass is considerably more full than the studio pressing, it was also more musical. Amazing music. I will continue to search for this type of production quality.” – Richard H., actual Elusive Disc customer
Today, Brothers In Arms remains a rock essential – and now is offered as a completely uncompressed two-disc vinyl album for the ultimate in fidelity!
