Dire Straits album for sale Product Description

Dire Straits album for sale by Dire Straits was released Jun 04, 1996 on the Mercury 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 CD music 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."   ...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. However, long before that recording hit the streets, Dire Straits were an unknown band with an unknown debut album floating in the new-wave-post-punk sea of 1978. The track "Sultans of swing" became a big hit for the band, but that is not the best track...oh no no no. Check out "Water of love", "Down to the waterline", "Six blade knife" and all the other tunes. I'll say it again... BRILLIANT.
