It’s funny… I’ve been singing this song on my commute for about a week straight. I’ve decided that the album version is in my top five recordings ever made. I’m going to try to post that list soon, and solicit your top fives (whoever you may be).
Dire Straits - “Sultans Of Swing” (OGWT; Recorded: Jan. 1978; Broadcast: May ‘78)
Gold. Taped two weeks before they started recording their first record—a full nine months before it was released.
Featuring variations on not one, but two, of my favorite guitar solos.
The man pulls-off like a mofo.
