On Every Street is the sixth and final studio album by British rock band Dire
Straits, released on September 10, 1991 by Vertigo Records internationally, and
by Warner Bros. Records in the United States. The follow-up to the band's
massively successful album Brothers in Arms, On Every Street reached the top of
the UK albums chart and was also certified platinum by the RIAA. This album
features Vince Gill as a guest artist and produced several singles: "Calling
Elvis," "Heavy Fuel," "On Every Street," and "The Bug."
Emerging on the scene in 1977, Dire Straits became one of the most commercially
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.
"As a whole, On Every Street reconfirms that Knopfler is an impeccable
guitarist, a musician of exquisite taste..." -Rolling Stone
"On Every Street is an amazing album...Instead of Sting singing "I Want My
MTV," fans got Hillbillies pedal steel player Paul Franklin adding to the
high-lonesome sound of the quite infectious title track and the epic "Planet of
New Orleans," along with meditations on the mistreatment of striking miners in
the cinematic "Iron Fist," and some of Knopfler's most haunting guitar work
throughout. The result can be seen as a dignified--and, at times, even
inspiring--farewell album." -Bill Forman, Amazon
