    Sultans of Swing but not Money for Nothing

    The only song I hear on a classic rock station off this album in "Sultans of Swing", "Money for Nothing" is on the album "Brothers in Arms". I really enjoyed this album, but it's before DDD (Digitally recorded, D mixed, and D mastered) ..."Brothers In Arms" released a few years later was a DDD album, very expensive at the time and also very rare until the 2000's when the equipment became cheap. I really like this album, there are no back up singers so the harmony doesn't sound impossibly auto tuned. Really genuine sounding emotion.

    This is a must-listen both for music fans and guitarists, featuring some of the best Strat tones ever captured for posterity. The musical soundscapes are evocative, Mark Knopfler is one of a notable faction of lyrically demonstrative rockers, and the singing / crooning is Dylanesque. The songs flow nicely and everything just fits brilliantly. Excellent!

    The bands first & what i consider to be their best release. Great guitar, drums, bass, & vocals. A well engineered & produced example of the bands strengths. I think they peaked as a band early in their career. If you like dire straits, you'll like this one!

    This is really a classic CD of the sound and some of the lost tracks are gems. I saw one disc left on the shelf and I grabbed it. This CD should be in everyone's collection. Knopfler's guitar heroics are well displayed throughout this album. Enjoy...

    Dire Straits 1978 album is a classic and second best to their 1985 release of "Brothers in Arms." Outstanding recording engineering that retains the original superb sound quality when played in a capable hi-fi system.

    Everybody loves Sultans of Swing which is a Dire Straits all time classic. This was their very first LP and is a classic. I like most of the songs here, but Sultans is my favorite!

    An excellent representation of 1980's pop rock music. I thought Dire Straits had a somewhat unique style for the time, which was well represented by this CD.
