Song of the Week: “Sultans of Swing” – Dire Straits

17 Mar

This was the band’s first single and first hit, off their 1978 debut album, Dire Straits. The longer versions of the song feature magnificent guitar work by Mark Knopfler, the best probably coming on their double live album, Alchemy. I can find the entire show on YouTube (here: “Sultan” occurs at 34:20, and don’t miss “Telegraph Road” at 1:04:40), but not the single track. So here’s a 1990s performance to catch your interest.
