30-year-old album

Dire Straits' biggest selling album, in fact, one of the biggest selling albums worldwide of all time, 1985's "Brothers In Arms", helped musically define a decade. A sophisticated rock masterpiece, it reached #1, stayed there nine weeks, and is nine times platinum. Contains "Money For Nothing", the song that helped immortalize the phrase "I want my MTV", hit #1, and won the Grammy for Best Rock Performance. Today "Brothers In Arms" remains a rock essential, and now is offered as a two-disc vinyl album.

Dire Straits emerged during the post-punk era of the late '70s, and while their sound was minimalistic and stripped down, they owed little to punk. If anything, the band was a direct outgrowth of the roots revivalism of pub rock. Led by guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler, the group built their sound upon the laid-back blues-rock of J.J. Cale, but they also had jazz and country inflections, occasionally dipping into the epic song structures of progressive rock. - All Music Guide
