  • In the six-year hiatus between BROTHERS IN ARMS and ON EVERY STREET, Mark Knopfler immersed himself in soundtrack work and occasional collaborations with other artists. Knopfler was always hugely influenced by country music, and his passion for this genre was predictably inflamed by winning a pair of 1990 Grammys for his work with Chet Atkins on NECK & NECK. This led to the Scottish guitarist reuniting Dire Straits for what would be the group's final studio album.
  • With his trademark twangy guitar in tow, Knopfler indulges his love of the American South with odes to Memphis (the chugging "Calling Elvis") and Louisiana (a moody "Planet Of New Orleans"). Throughout STREET, Dire Straits does an impressive job trying on various styles, including infectious rockabilly ("The Bug"), lush countrypolitan ("Ticket To Heaven"), and Appalachian-flavored folk ("Iron Hand"). Elsewhere, Knopfler does his best Dylan vocal on the film-noir blues of "Fade To Black" and has fun playing a boor obsessed with material possessions (the lite-jazz-flavored "My Parties").

Grant Marshall on
This is their signature album without a doubt. Mark Knofpler at his finest. There are so many stand out tracks its hard to say which is best. A few personal favourites are On Every Street, The Bug, and Calling Elvis. They have such a fresh country rock sound that still sounds fresh today. These guys were master song writers and I'm really sad they disbanded, would have been great to see them Live. This album is a bargain @ only $20 - get it before someone cottons onto the low price and jacks it up.
