To say Straits (album)
Dire Straits is the first album group of English Rock Dire Straits, left in 1978 and produced by Muff Winwood. This album contains in particular the title " Sultans off Swing " , individual which had an enormous success.
History/ContainedDire Straits is an album of Pub rock'n'roll quiet and débonnaire, but full with smoothness and elegance, with excellent compositions like " Down to the Waterline ", " Setting Me Up " or " Wild West End ", under the direction of Muff Winwood, brother of Steve Winwood and former guide of the Spencer Davis Group. The success of the album came initially from the Netherlands and the France, before gaining the Great Britain nearly one year later and, from there, to touching the the United States very quickly.
" Sultans off Swings "In 1977, the group Dire Straits sends a Maquette to Charlie Gillett, organizer of Radio London and historian of the Rock. This one diffuses every evening with a communicative enthusiasm " Sultans off Swings " who, with his insane virtuosity, his solo of Fender Stratocaster and phrased with the Bob Dylan of the singer-guitarist, becomes traditional immediate. The title makes it possible the group to sign at Vertigo Records and to publish its first album.
