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
