Sultans Of Swing: The Very Best Of
by Dire Straits
Released: Oct 1998
Label: Warner Bros.
The definitive compilation of Mark Knopfler and Co.'s stripped down, intelligent Boogie Rock. From the Dylan-esque roll of "Sultans of Swing" to the Adult Contemporary pop of "Walk Of Life," listeners get all the hits and a bevy of live tracks. As always, Knopfler's streamlined guitar work steals the show.
