Dire Straits - “Sultans Of Swing” (OGWT; Recorded: Jan. 1978; Broadcast: May ‘78)
Gold. Taped two weeks before they started recording their first record—a full nine months before it was released.
Featuring variations on not one, but two, of my favorite guitar solos.
The man pulls-off like a mofo.
They make one of the best songs look so easy. True pros.
