Knopfler & Co. have never sounded so good-this 20-bit remastered 16-track anthology features the breakthrough-hit title track; their 1985 #1 smash, Money for Nothing , plus So Far Away; Walk of Life; Love over Gold (live); Twisting by the Pool; Romeo and Juliet; Lady Writer; Wild Theme-Theme from Local Hero , and more by one of rock's great guitar bands.
This compilation repeats seven tracks from 1988's Money For Nothing anthology. Given that Mark Knopfler and crew have recorded one new album during the decade between best-of collections, how different could Sultans of Swing be? For one thing, CD dominance has made for longer compilations, and this one is fleshed out by singles, three tracks from 1991's On Every Street, and Knopfler's solo "Local Hero" theme, performed live. More importantly, the second track here is the band's terrific second single, "Lady Writer," previously only available on the otherwise dismal Communiqué LP. Five tracks from Dire Straits' huge Brothers in Arms LP appear here, but only two tracks surface from Making Movies, the group's pinnacle achievement. Ultimately, if you own Making Movies and this compilation, you own the essential Dire Straits. --Bill Holdship
What's there not to like - that's if you like Dire Straits!Published 2 months ago by Diane Ribchester
That cd is a real jewel !
Take me back to the old Dire Straits, even if I wasn't born yet.
Buy it and you'll see what I mean !
Great collection.Love this band's work, and Knopfler is unreal. Enjoy this album, as it really shows off the band's chopsPublished on Nov. 29 2012 by Langer

I realize that they had to edit this CD in order to put all the tracks on it...that's clear. My advice to all of you is to do what I did. Read morePublished on Feb. 22 2004 by Ryan
If all you know of Dire Straits is their "Best Of" you are really missing the best of Dire Straits and the incredible songwriting and guitar of Mark Knopfler. Read morePublished on Jan. 5 2004 by Kilgore
