Jeffrey 2.6: Dire Straits

Dire Straits were inescapable in the 1980s, from Sultans of Swing's omnipresence on rock radio, to smash-hit album Brothers in Arms smothering the charts in hit singles, Mark Knopfler and the gang were everywhere!

Despite this, we didn't know them that well. We knew the obvious hit singles, and a couple of albums, but we didn't know that much about the lesser-known stuff. So, in a spirit of (re-)discovery, we - clutching John Ilsley's biography "My Life in Dire Straits" - set out to explore their six-album discography, and what we discovered was that there is very little we agree on when it comes to Dire Straits.
