Additional comments
In May 2012, the Greek newspaper "H Kaohmepinh" (The Daily) with a circulation of 100.000-150.000 copies, started to issue the first four Dire Straits albums. There were given away with the 4 Euro edition for the next four consecutive Sundays, starting on 27th May. Issued in a card sleeve which also has the name of the newspaper in the lower left corner on the back cover. The CD is the same source as the remastered release from 1996 (this year is also mentioned on the CD and cover), but it was issued in 2012 with this newspaper, a special edition for one day only.
