Money for Nothing,
This review is from: Money for Nothing (Audio CD)
Of the Dire straits best of's on the market `Money for Nothing' is my favourite, simply because it is the first one I bought and I prefer the track running order to later collections. This has a selection of tracks up until `Brothers in Arms' album and although later best of's include tracks from `On Every Street' and `On The Night' this in no way detracts from the tracks on offer here. From `Sultans of Swing' to the fun feel of `Twisting by The Pool' and including the romantic standard `Romeo and Juliet' this album covers them all. My particular favourite is `Telegraph Road' which leads you to the anthem `Money for Nothing' and the brooding `Brothers in Arms' which ends this wonderful selection. For an example of Knopflers song writing and unique guitar tone in one place this album is a great place to start and once you've taken a listen I'll guarantee you'll want to go and find more. A solid `best of' collection that is still worth considering despite later greatest hits packages.
