Ultra rare promotional CD! This is one of the
toughest CD's from Dire Straits to get your hands on.
The CD is packed in a normal jewel case.
Manufactured and distributed by Nippon Phonogram Co.,Ltd. Tokyo, Japan. Very rare to see a B-side (Millionaire blues) as
part of a compilation / promo CD. Over the years, only a couple of them
appeared on Eil & Ebay and were sold for very high prices. It took 27
years before I finally could add this CD to my collection (July 2018).
I had some conversations with other fans why
this CD has a title called Dire Straits
1977-1993 while it was produced and
released in 1991 :
Other possibility is that it simply is a misprint and therefor quickly deleted, which would explain why this promo CD is so very hard to get.
