Mark and David Knopfler formed Dire Straits in London in 1977. The following year could only be described as a slow-motion explosion. Their self-titled debut LP was released, the band supported Talking Heads on tour, and the first single—the immortal “Sultans of Swing”—was released twice before it started to bite. The album eventually topped charts around the world and set up an amazing career for chief songwriter and guitar-master Mark Knopfler. Fame and fortune did not prevent the music developing: you can hear increased complexity on Making Movies and Love Over Gold. Yet Dire Straits also continued to produce memorable singles. The band’s fifth LP, Brothers In Arms, boasted two massive hits (one with Sting guesting) and sounds fabulous. Indeed, the music was always meticulously recorded and produced, making Dire Straits a perfect artist for high-quality vinyl re-issues. And the music’s pretty damn fine too.
