I first heard Dire Straits wafting into our high school class from the music room downstairs. It was an "ah-ha" moment that prompted a race to Terry Atkinson's classroom to find out what this great music was. We listened to the newly released debut from beginning to end that dreary English day and I was hooked. By the 80's the band had descended into MTV fodder but re-visiting the first album shows how timeless it was.
