One of my all-time favorites . . . and it's from 1980--what a year!

in the mail today, the new 6 CD release of Dire Straits Studio Albums.
It turns out that I know way more of their music than I thought.

Only $22.68 at ImporCDs Dire Straits Studio Albums 1978-1991 Boxed Set on ImportCDs
More surprising (1 CD in) is that it isn't brickwalled.

If you like The Beat (as they are known in the UK) who I didn't see until a few years ago at The Beautiful Days Festival, what about The Selector (brilliant live, saw them a long long time ago!)

This album won the 2008 Grammy for Best Rock Gospel album.
I don’t typically listen to gospel but her albums rock and she has an amazing, kinda raspy, soulful voice.

Also played her live version of Gimme Shelter from the You Are There album.
Any fan of that song needs to hear this
