Dire Straits, Dire Straits

And while we're talking about them, let's talk about the best blues-rock album I have, or have ever heard. A while back, AG listed this one in their top 100 guitar albums ever, and I agree. Sultans of Swing was one of my favorites growing up, but even if you got tired of hearing that on the radio, the rest of the album is just full of good stuff, both vocally and musically. I could probably do without Wild West End, but most of the rest (and certainly the first 6 tracks) would go on any Desert Island compilation I would make, and not just of Dire Straits tracks, either.
