Good band, nice summary | Reviewer: King Prawn | 8/24/13

but just thought without being too pedantic I'd point out an error Brewer's Droop were not from the"northern UK" (which would be Scotland)but from High Wycombe just outside London.

big fan | Reviewer: jim j | 12/5/07

I wore out the first two Dire Straights records and bought second copies. Waterline is still one of my all time faves. I love to hear Mark play and I guess it's no wonder. How good does a guy have to be to have the resume that he has.

The feeling of Summer | Reviewer: Carol Bond | 11/5/07

When I am asked 'Who is your favourite band ever'? How can I not answer 'Dire Straits'. I have seen them everytime as they played in Adelaide and still it wan't enough. The feeling of Summer is alway invoked in me when I hear their music, a lush wave of happiness engulfs me and I say with all my heart - REFORM FELLOWS AND PLEASE COME TO ADELAIDE AGAIN, I NEED TO HEAR YOU PLAY IN PERSON.

meet them during their tour in Sydney back in 1982 | Reviewer: Mary | 6/26/07

As the title states i had the privilege of meeting the amazing Mark Knopfler and his band on one of their Sydney tours back in 1982. I was also invited to go on a boat cruise around the Harbour with them and as if that wasn't enough i also was given a programme which all of the wonderful Dire Straits members signed and which i have kept to this day. Dj fitz i agree with you hope to see the lads reunite and show the music world what talent really is. Do dit do dit do do do down to the water line.

they must reform..... | Reviewer: dj fitz | 6/18/07

i have seen so many bands reform in the last number of years...surely now it must be the turn of the greatest of them all....come on lads...why are we waiting....

Reforming | Reviewer: Shagger | 6/4/07

Have followed their meteoric rise since Sultans of Swing came on the charts. They were a part of my teenage years.and still are a part of my life.
Their music relaxes ,and massages your imagination and soothes your soul.
When are they reforming and doing a world tour ,I think its time.

Real Sultans Of All Time | Reviewer: M.Eid | 5/21/07

Everytime you hear a song by Dire Straits, it's like it's the first time you hear it and LOVE it. Their music is perfectly engineered to be highly addictive. One can never put their music in any time frame. They were, and will always be, the real sultans of swing, with Knopfler being the music genius of all time !!! I recommend all songs ever written and/or performed by Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler.

LADY WRITER ON THE TV- | Reviewer: GIOVANNA YANEZ | 5/5/07

SULTANS OF SWIM...MANY MANY MORE hE HAS A GREAT TASTE FOR PREFORM AND A INCREDIBLE VOICE , PLUS IS CREATIVE IS A GOOD MUSIC IS NOT COMMON

Great artist | Reviewer: William "Heavy Fuel" Vogt II | 1/19/05

This is my favorite artist of all time, and is my favorite out of any band
to listen to out of any band I have heard. They got great songs, their best
are "Heavy Fuel", "Money For Nothing", "Tunnel of Love", and "Sultans of
Swing". Their voice is perfect, their music is perfect and their albums are
just right. I reccomend all 5 albums by this band.
