DIRE STRAITS - st LP 78 w Communique LP 79 w Making Movies LP 80 w Love Over Gold LP 82 w Brothers In Arms LP 85

REPOST Request:  Their debut st LP is considered one of the best in rock 'n' roll as they really were in 'dire straits' and had leveraged their credit to the max.  I post this now and sell this stuff off as it is outside the scope of the blog because I remember 'Skateaway' was the AOR radio hit song going when I completely switched off all mass produced rock 'n' roll

Hey, thanks for all this Dire Straits. Great stuff I've been wanting to revisit for a long time.

Just a note: it looks like the first song on "Making Movies", titled "Carousel Waltz", isn't in the RAR file for that album. Just thought you'd want to know...

Dear Pernt
The first song is called Tunnel of Love and wiki like the album says it is an extract from that waltz time is the same so it is all there I just should have subtitled the track that way which I did not so don't worry! Thanks for the comment and I will repost the first link next week when I am back in the office wher I have an online PC to use.

I know that it's "mass-produced rock," but seriously, this is some great music. It's far above most of the AOR "classic rock" that was coming out at that time. Knopfler is one of the great musicians of the rock era, and a fantastic songwriter. Even if their music isn't your cuppa tea, you have to admire the artistry that went into these albums. I've always thought this band was superb.
