Lady Writer - Dire Straits - Communiqué

I am almost certain that I saw the same interview with Marina Warner on a TV culture programme that inspired the song. She was an extremely attractive and engaging woman hey, she still is and I remember a friend and I being very taken with her. It was quite a surprise when the song came out and we found it expressed our thoughts to a great extent.

Flag Padger on November 25, General Comment Guru, totally agree. I always sensed some sadness in the line "I recall my fall from grace". To me it sounds like it was a heavily one sided relationship, and seeing the lady on TV is bringing back all those memories.

He's still not over her. But she obviously is, "only talked to me when she felt like it". The Lady Writer on the TV seems just like her, the same "type". General Comment It sounds like someone who he saw on TV reminded him of a woman he knows.

My foray, herewith and superfluous, is the eighth such posting, and still nothing on the SQ! Joking aside, I'm looking forward to watching this one develop. It's predecessors, having snowballed beyond imagination -- and comprised mostly of spectral imaginations, as no such specimen existed until now -- have set the tone for one heck of a fiery comet coming out of the ether.

I predict this might become one of the longest-tailed threads ever. It should go on for years after the release of these 45s. MisterBritt , Nov 17, Just going from memory, what strikes me first is a more emphasized low end.

This is not surprising from MoFi in the least. Fantastic decay on the highs as well. The vinyl is heavy, flat and beautiful. The surfaces are extremely quiet.

These are good enough, and different enough, to be well worth having. Will I be parting with any of the originals or BGs? No way. MisterBritt , Tommyboy , Greenmonster and 6 others like this.

The sequence cut on the lacquers is , which comes in about the same time as the Tone Poets released in February this year, like Chick Corea After reviewing all four titles on discogs, it appears some sides have been re-cut with numbers out of the original sequence.
