My copy of this album was very scratched. It should not have been posted on here. Only a few songs were listenable. But those few songs were GREAT! Since buying this, I have bought three other Dire Straits albums and listened to the bad-quality songs brand new. This compilation has all of their greatest hits from their self titled debut up to their 1985 album, Brothers In Arms. Bottom line, I would highly recommend this as a sampler to Dire Straits.

"If you are looking to buy a Dire Straits album, no better place than to start here. This contains all the best songs from their debut up to 'Brothers In Arms'. The songs are predominantly in original studio form and not edited in the case of 'Sultans of Swing', 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Tunnel of Love'. And the one superb cut from the otherwise overrated live album ALCHEMY is included here in the form of 'Telegraph Road'.Its a shame that the last two songs, 'Money for Nothing' and 'Brothers In Arms' have been edited though. For that reason you'll want to buy the 'Brothers In Arms' LP as well. Otherwise a perfect intro to the group."
Buy Sultans of Swing The Very Best of Dire Straits Insted.

"I liked this compilation good, but Sultans of Swing - The Very

Best of Dire Straits has more choices like "Love over gold",

"Lady writer", "So Far away", "Calling elvis", "Heavy Fuel", &

"On every street". This compilation is good for most of their

big hits like "Sultans", "Romeo", "Telegraph", & "Money for Nothing". Anyway, here's how the songs were on this CD.

Sultans of Swing 10/10 Great song, great riffs. Everyone's favorite and one of mine too.

Down to the Waterline 10/10 My favorite song from their debut


Portobello Belle 7/10 I think the other version was better.

Twisting by the Pool 9/10 Great

Tunnel of Love 11/10 My favorite song!!! I love this song.

Romeo and Juliet 8/10 Everyone likes this song, it's good and

fun but not so great!! The live version is way better.

Where Do You Think You're Going 6/10 Different

Walk of Life 9/10 Check out the On the night version.

Private Investigations 9/10 A little too slow.

Telegraph Road 9/10 The other version is slightly better on the

Love over gold cd.

Money for Nothing 9/10 Bad!!! Editing this song is terrible.

Listen to the brothers in arms version. I'll give this song an

11 if it was 8 mintues.

Brothers in Arms 8/10 Too boring, great song for guitar riffs.

This cd is always scratched when you buy it,

thank you very much"
