*CD BOX SET – ‘THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1978-1991’
TO BE RELEASED ON 9th OCTOBER ‘20
*PLUS REPRESSING OF VINYL BOX SET DUE TO OVERWHELMING PUBLIC DEMAND
On 9th October, to coincide with National Album Day 2020, UMC/Virgin will release a 6 CD box set of all of the studio albums by Dire Straits, a band that straddled the globe with their sophisticated rootsy guitar rock wedded to literate story-telling lyrics. Emerging on the club and pub circuit in 1977, Dire Straits were led by charismatic Geordie singer-songwriter, record producer and composer Mark Knopfler, one of the most successful musicians the UK has ever produced, who is often cited as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Dire Straits’ sound defined the late 70s/early 80s with monster hits such as ‘Sultans Of Swing’, ‘Romeo And Juliet’, ‘Money For Nothing’ and ‘Walk Of Life’. Dire Straits’ 1985 album Brothers In Arms, a global No 1 and double Grammy Award winner, is one of the world’s best selling albums. After releasing their final album ‘On Every Street’ in ’91, Knopfler called time on Dire Straits in 1995 and set off on a new path as a solo artist.
Dire Straits – The Studio Albums 1978-1991 features the albums Dire Straits (1978), Communiqué (1979), Making Movies (1980), Love Over Gold (1982), Brothers In Arms (1985) and On Every Street (1991) - all of which are certified multi-platinum. The albums will come in a deluxe clamshell box with the CDs housed in mini-vinyl style cardboard wallets and each album will include a beautiful poster with the original sleeve artwork (including lyrics and credits).
