Product Description

Dire Straits album for sale by Dire Straits was released Sep 19, 2000 on the Warner Bros. label. Led by former music journalist/college professor Mark Knopfler, Dire Straits emerged with their melancholy self-titled debut amidst the clatter of punk and gloss of disco. Dire Straits songs With a laid-back, raspy style of singing and distinctive finger-picking style of guitar playing, Knopfler came across as a fusion of J.J. Cale, Bob Dylan, and Chet Atkins. Coming out of the pub-rock scene, this tight English quartet cracked both sides of the Atlantic with the insanely catchy "Sultans Of Swing." Dire Straits CD music contains a single disc with 9 songs.   ...See Full Description

The best came first.
Another BRILLIANT album... Dire Straits became the band that everyone loved to hate mainly because every track from the later "Brothers in arms" LP was played to death on the radio.

I had this many years ago on a long gone cassette tape. Very happy to find it on CD, Dire Straits at their best.
