CRITIC'S CORNER: DIRE STRAITS' MAKING MOVIES




The third album contained “Tunnel of Love”, which was also featured in the 1982 Richard Gere film "An Officer and a Gentleman" shot and filmed in the Philippines in Clark and Subic.


Making Movies was later certified platinum in the United States and double-platinum in the United Kingdom. The record was done at Power Station in New York under the production f Jimmy Iovine and Mark Knopfler. David Knopfler left Dire Straits in the middle of the recording for the album after heated arguments with his brother Mark. His guitar tracks were almost complete for the album, but were re-recorded by Mark.


As usual these are the few copies left as all 4 Dire Straits albums from MFSL are now out of stock.
