Mark Knopfler's spare, tasteful guitar lines and distinctive vocals mark their self-titled debut album of bluesy tunes that even on first listen, sound as if you've just wandered into a local pub to hear a great rock band over a beer. Thanks to the Top Ten hit 'Sultans of Swing,' Dire Straits was a major success in both Britain and America, with the single and album climbing into the Top Ten on both sides of the Atlantic.

All 6 studio recordings have been re-mastered and this is a great one.
It's Dire Straits and if your a fan you need all 6 of these CD's. I have them all on vinyl and CD and like both depending on the output I'm using. Vinyl with my hafler DH-500 Amp and Technics SL-Q2/Denon DL-103 MC cartridge combo and CD for playback in my all tube Little Dot MK II headphone amp!
I heard Sultans of Swing while out shopping last week and decided to add some new music to my collection when I got home. I've been trying to collect and listen to music that makes me feel good. Knopfler's guitar work on this album, the vocals, the production, all fit together so well that listening to the album brings me back to center.
And I'm just a classic rock/blues fan anyway. I highly recommend this one.
