Rock

The second studio album by the British rock band, released eight months after the surprise success of 'Dire Straits' (1978). 'Communiqué' was the last to feature Mark Knopfler's brother David who then chose a solo career. The laid-back shuffles and intricate, bluesy guitar playing, cemented their sound and 'Lady Writer' provided a follow up hit.

VERTIGO

Rock

Dire Straits went from strength to strength, following up their first album with the excellent ‘Communiqué’ (1979) and ‘Making Movies’ (1980). With each successive release, the sound got more sophisticated and the songs more complex. Hits like Lady Writer and Romeo and Juliet took them to a wider audience, but the understanding was that this was very much an albums band. As each new Long Player came out, production and recording quality ratcheted up.

VERTIGO

Rock

Debut studio album by the British rock band, originally released in 1978. The album produced the hit single 'Sultans of Swing', which reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 8 on the UK Singles Chart. The band’s eponymous first album, infused with the sound of early sixties Fender Stratocasters – no synthesisers here – further underlined the fact that Dire Straits were more in the mould of JJ Cale and Eric Clapton than the New York Dolls. Produced by Muff Winwood and engineered by Rhett Davies, the new album had a more grown-up feel than any of the band’s chart contemporaries.

The sassy ‘Brothers in Arms’ (1985) pushed the band to global megastardom. A technical masterpiece, it was arguably the state-of-the-art eighties rock recording alongside Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’.
