Retrofinds remembers classic album - Brothers In Arms Dire Straights

First time I heard this album was when I was on holiday in Dartmouth with a group of friends. We blasted the album on (for the time) a top of the range hi-fi and it sounded amazing. The guitar in Money For Nothing sounded fantastic.The walk of life and money for nothing are still popular today. Who can forget the amazing video for Money For Nothing?

All songs written by Mark Knopfler, except where indicated. The track lengths on the LP version differ from the lengths on the CD and cassette versions, due to the limitations of the medium. The full tracks would not all fit on one side of vinyl. (This was one of the first rock albums where the CD was longer than the LP.)

1. "So Far Away" – 5:12
2. "Money for Nothing" (Knopfler, Sting) – 8:26

3. "Walk of Life" – 4:12

4. "Your Latest Trick" – 6:33
5. "Why Worry" – 8:31
6. "Ride Across the River" – 6:58
