Private Investigations: The Best Of Dire Straits & Mark Knopfler

Did I need to buy this? No.

Is it ridiculous to think this has covered the best of Dire Straits AND Mark Knopfler on one measly CD? Yes.

Is it likely just a label money-grab? Probable.

Does this still contain much goodness and feel satisfying upon listen? Of course.

Is it essential? Not really. But it was cheap and I see Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler and I just buy it.

Tracks (to show you what they thought was all of the best). These are listed in play order, showing how the disc is divided into two sections:

Dire Straits: Sultans Of Swing / Love Over Gold / Romeo And Juliet / Tunnel Of Love / Private Investigations / Money For Nothing / Brothers In Arms / Walk Of Life / On Every Street

Mark Knopfler: Going Home: Theme Of The Local Hero / Why Aye Man / Boom, Like That / What It Is / All The Road Running (w. Emmylou Harris)

    My question is that whenever Dire Straits songs are mentioned, how come “Skateaway” and “Industrial Disease” aren’t included among them? There were great songs at the time and two of my favourite DS songs.
