Dire Straits - Communiqué download album

Communiqué is the second studio album by the British rock band Dire Straits released on 15 June 1979 by Vertigo Records internationally and by Warner Bros. Records in the United States. The album produced the single "Lady Writer", which reached on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and on the UK Singles Chart. The album reached on album charts in Germany, New Zealand, and Sweden, in the United States and in the United Kingdom.

Released June 15, 1979. Communiqué Tracklist. 1. Once Upon a Time in the West Lyrics.

Communiqué became the first album ever to enter the German charts at number one in its first week of release. Even more remarkable, this happened while their debut album, Dire Straits was still at the number three position in that country. The album went on to sell over 7 million copies worldwide: in Europe it sold . million copies, and in the United States it reached gold status. Communiqué was remastered and released with the rest of the Dire Straits catalogue in 1996 for most of the world outside the United States, and on 19 September 2000 in the United States.

Author: Dire Straits Album title: Communique Once Upon a Time in the West . .-. Some people get a cheep laugh breaking up the speed limit Scaring the pedestrians for a minute Crossing up the progress driving on the grass Leaving just enough room to pass Sunday driver never took a test Once upon a time in the west. But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean Think what he say, say what he mean Maybe on Monday he got something to say Communication Communique Communique. Maybe he could talk about the tricks of the trade Maybe he could talk about himself Maybe he could talk about the money that he made Maybe he'd be saying something else.

Rushed out less than nine months after the surprise success of Dire Straits' self-titled debut album, the group's sophomore effort, Communiqué, seemed little more than a carbon copy of its predecessor with less compelling material. Mark Knopfler and co. had established a sound (derived largely from . Cale) of laid-back shuffles and intricate, bluesy guitar playing, and Communiqué provided more examples of it. But there was no track as focused as "Sultans of Swing," even if "Lady Writer" (a lesser singles chart entry on both.
