This first leg took the band around Great Britain in June and July 1978, performing in England, Scotland and Wales.It charted at number one worldwide, spending 10 weeks at number one on the UK Albums Chart (between 18 January and 22 March 1986), nine weeks at number one on the Billboard 200 in the United States, and 34 weeks at number one on the Australian Albums Chart.

Maybe the multitrack tape ran out, the engineer disappeared thinking the show was over…the full story behind it may remain a mystery.

The album reached the top of the album charts in Germany, Australia and France, number 2 in the United States and number 5 in the United Kingdom. Then we have Love Over Gold another one of my favourites actually with a foldout sheet with the lyrics on.

It came off the back of their hugely success 1985 long player Brotehrs in Arms and featured plenty of tracks from that record as well as the four others before that.When I picked up their debut album, I didn't know what I was in for and boy, did I get a hell of a surprise. It is quite laid back by comparison but the mix of the mid tempo groove and the passionate playing of Mark Knopfler makes it an album highlight for sure. Next up is Brothers in Arms which almost launched the CD format back in the day and then finally On Every Street. I also recognise that it is almost the first thing we think of when we hear of a new box is being released.

It was a long while before the constant gigging, traveling, and recording reaped any financial reward.

Dire Straits is a British rock band that was formed in 1977 by Mark Knopfler, David Knopfler, John Illsley and Pick Withers. When Brothers in Arms was released for example it was picked to show off the new CD format, to me the original CDs sound very good so I can see the rationale behind them using these.The album was released in 1978 at the height of punk which had brought the demise of many of the classic rock acts of the 1970s. Although the group disbanded multiple times throughout their career, they left an indelible mark on the music industry.

This was finally rectified when I was found myself chatting with Pick Withers at a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame event at Abbey Road Studios in London. There is not a weak track on the album - Knopfler had clearly penned an impressive collection of songs during his pre-fame years. It’s especially dedicated to the memory of Jack Sonni, who joined us during the ‘Brothers In Arms’ tour and, incidentally, played a significant role in introducing me to my wife, Laurie, many years ago. The older CDs all have a retrospective essay and lyrics so if you have these you will probably be keeping them!Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. The first single released was " Sultans of Swing" which first broke into the United States top five early in the spring of 1979, becoming a hit a full five months after the album was released there, and then reached number eight in the UK Singles Chart. In his review for Rolling Stone, Ken Tucker wrote that the band "plays tight, spare mixtures of rock, folk and country music with a serene spirit and witty irony.
