Money for Nothing was originally released in 1988 and is a compilation of Dire Straits’ greatest hits that intended to celebrate their 10-year anniversary. It has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide and offers an interesting overview of their first five albums and provides a great tracklist which this contemporary version retains. The band’s signature song, Sultans of Swing, kicks the album off with panache with its vivacious guitar solos. In 1978, a far cry from the trends of disco, punk and heavy metal, Mark Knopfler’s band provided an “old-school” rock sound with Bob Dylan-esque vocals and virtuoso solos. There are plenty of standout songs on this compilation, including Romeo and Juliet (a Shakespearian reference where the rivalry of the Montague-Capulets is replaced by a sense of materialism that makes true love impossible), the epic Telegraph Road (featuring its mind-blowing guitar riff), the soft and melancholic Private Investigations (where vibraphones, marimbas and other synths interact with the rhythm section). Of course, there’s also Walk of Life, with its legendary and unmistakable synthetic sound. As for the title track, Money for Nothing, it offers an impressive satire of the average American brought to life by Sting’s exceptional vocals. With their witty lyrics, magnificent blues-rock guitar solos and iconic use of synth, Dire Straits (who separated in 1995) have undoubtedly earned a place as one of the greatest bands that rock music has ever known © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Interpol, Fade to Black

At the dawn of the new millennium, when garage was king, the New York quartet that then became a trio exploded onto the scene by reviving the dark romanticism of 80’s post-punk.

Elvis, Still The King?

Fifty-five years after his death, Elvis Presley remains an unparalleled trailblazer. However, despite his essential 1954-1955 sessions for the Sun label still standing as the cornerstone of rock’n’roll, the King’s aura is beginning to fade amongst today’s youth, who now tend to favour The Beatles, The Stones and The Beach Boys…

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.
