Greatest Hits Collection on 180g Double LP!
Remastered by Bob Ludwig & Cut by Bernie Grundman!
Cut Over 4 Sides for the First Time!
Dire Straits straddled the globe with their sophisticated rootsy guitar rock wedded to literate story-telling lyrics. Emerging from the club and pub circuit in 1977, Dire Straits was led by charismatic Geordie singer-songwriter, record producer, and composer Mark Knopfler.
Knopfler is one of the most successful musicians the UK has ever produced and is often cited as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Dire Straits' sound defined the late '70s/early '80s with monster global hits such as "Sultans of Swing," "Romeo and Juliet," "Money for Nothing" and "Walk of Life" (all included on this release). Dire Straits' 1985 album Brothers in Arms, a global No. 1 and double Grammy® Award winner, is one of the best-selling albums of all time. After releasing their final album, On Every Street, in 1991, Knopfler set off on a new path as a solo artist.
Money for Nothing, the first Dire Straits greatest hits collection (featuring songs from the band's first five albums), was originally released in October 1988.
Fully remastered by Bob Ludwig, and cut by Bernie Grundman, the Money for Nothing double vinyl reissue is cut over four sides for the first time and is pressed on 180-gram vinyl with original artwork.
