When I first heard this tune as a teen in high school, I wasn't ready for it. It wasn't like the rest of the hard rock I listened to most of the time. It certainly wasn't romantic like the soft rock I chose to relax to. Yet, as the decades have rolled by, I enjoy this song for its guitar licks and underlying story. It paints a picture of some people in the south playing their music and enjoying it. These fictional musicians, the sultans, didn't need to categorize their style. Likewise, the tune itself doesn't need to be pigeon-holed into a section like I once wanted to do to it. My musical tastes are far more varied now and this song is at the top of my list.

I remember when this first came out it was played to death on radio and at the clubs and bars. A home grown London band who recorded this in a demo studio with session player Pick Whithers on drums and two brothers on guitar featuring out outstanding lead guitar playing. They sent a copy to their favorite London DJ and he started playing it on his show and the rest of the world quickly caught on.

This is a really great song. It features mooth, sophisticated music and a wonderfully edgy, slightly arrogant tone. Brilliant.Highly recommended.

Great experience with Amazon's mp3 download. No DRM, so I can play it anywhere, and the sound quality (for me at least) is great..

I love the guitar work in this song. Ole Mark is one hell of a guitarist, and it is a pleasure to hear this and jam to it.

Mark Knopfler's guitar work lifts this great song about a poor band in a little nightclub with the grand-sounding name.

...and Dire Straits have several songs that fit the bill, Sultans of Swing being a good example. I love their music!
