Emerging on the scene in 1977, Dire Straits became one of the most comercially successful bands of its time. Led with virtuoso skill by vocalist/guitarist, Mark Knopfler, Dire Straits was behind such hits as "Sultans of Swing," "Brothers In Arms," "Romeo and Juliet," and "So Far Away."

Propelled by Mark Knopfler's literate songs, gruff vocals, and spidery guitar work, Dire Straits had overcome initial skepticism for their resistance to '70s new wave accents in favor of their rootsy traditionalism. The band's sound drew from a variety of musical influences, including jazz, folk, and blues. As their career progressed, Dire Straits became more refined and the band became one of the leaders of a group of mature, veteran musicians that designed their music to appeal to aging baby boomers.

The Dire Straits Complete Studio Albums 1978-1991 box set collects the band's six successful studio albums spanning a timeframe of 13 years. The boxset begins with the band's self-titled debut album, followed by Communique and Making Movies released in 1979 and 1980 respectively. Love Over Gold came next, released two years later in 1982, with the band's most successful effort, Brothers In Arms, arriving in 1985. Dire Straits' 1991 release, On Every Street, came to be the band's final studio album before calling it quits.

Bernie Grundman mastered the first four titles from analogue masters, with lacquers cut by Grundman and Chris Bellman; Brothers in Arms and On Every Street mastered by Bob Ludwig and cut by Chris Bellman. All are pressed on beautiful 180 Gram Vinyl. The CD running order with full length versions of the tracks have been restored to Brothers In Arms, now presented as a 2xLP set, as well as a double vinyl of On Every Street.
