MAKING MOVIES is the best album that Dire Straits ever made. Here they take their roots in Dylan, Springsteen, J.J. Cale, the Allman Brothers Band, and the Band, and blend them into their own unique style of jamming pub-rock. There are several significant epics here, including "Tunnel Of Love", as well as some hot rockers like "Solid Rock." I had the cassette, and now I'm going for the CD, which should tell you how important this album was to rock music. If one Dire Straits album is all you have space for, let it be this one.
