Continuing on with our relentless onslaught of the entire Dire Straits catalogue - "Dire Straits", "Making Movies", "Love Over Gold" and "Brothers In Arms", we thought we'd better make the collection almost complete by re-issuing their rockin' 2nd album - the mighty "Communique" (No.5 UK, No.11 US, '79). "Communique" has quite a history to it! The band had just begun to record "Communique" at Compass Point in the Bahamas when "Sultans Of Swing" from the their debut album took off in both the UK and US in early 1979. This added even more impetus to the band and added an extra sparkle in the studio with legendary producers Jerry Wexler and Barry Beckett producing a suddenly hot international act.

"Communique" sold a staggering 7million copies without even generating a huge hit (although "Lady Writer" did register slightly in the lower reaches of the US Top 50). In fact, "Communique" must have been a great experience because the producers invited the whole band over to Muscle Shoals Studios to help out with Bob Dylan's "Slow Train Coming" later in the year! Definitely one for the Dire 'die-hards'!
