Dire Straits - Making Movies (1980).

After their second album, Communique was considered by some critics to be too subtle and too close to the band’s stellar self-titled debut album, singer-guitarist Mark Knopfler set out to write a few tunes that exhibited his ambitions as a songwriter. His brother David departed the group, leaving even more room for Knopfler to fill. He responded with his tightest and strongest set of tunes to date

Making Movies ‎ (Cass, Album). Dire Straits - Skateaway 6:21. temri, ebarnard, orjanbirkus, Billy Crandle.

And Making Movies is helped by a new wave-tinged pop production, which actually helps Knopfler's jazzy inclinations take hold.

Mark Knopfler: guitar, vocals John Illsley: bass, vocals Pick Withers: drums, vocals. Additional Musicians Roy Bittan: keyboards. Produced by Jimmy Iovine & Mark Knopfler Engineered by Shelly Yakus, assisted by Jeff Hendrickson & Jon Mathias Mastered by Greg Calbi. Artwork by Neil Terk Photography by Brian Griffin.

Dire Straits' third album, Making Movies, was released on 17 October 1980 and took them to No. 4, paving the way for a three-album chart-topping ru. But with Making Movies, the band entered the new decade well on the way to the radio-friendly roots-rock sound that would go on to dominate the ’80s. The album was released on 17 October that year and made its UK chart debut on the 25th. With Knopfler’s sibling David having left the band during the summer 1980 recording sessions, Mark became the group’s sole guitarist and songwriting force, with ambitions befitting those of a band whose previous two albums had both hit the UK N. spot.
