- Some Unnecessary Edits

This was only made because Dire Straits needed an album to fulfill their music contract. Since they had only three good albums they filled their playlist with live songs and previously unreleased edits. Its horrible that they edited "Money for Nothing" from seven minutes to just under five! Unfortuneately, ALL greatest hits compilations have this edited version so that it is not possible to have "Sultans of Swing" and the full "Money for Nothing" on the same disc (without illegally burning a disc). It was very disappointing and I am still waiting for a compilation that includes all of their good songs with no live or edited versions of songs.

- Editing is Irritating

Second verse of MFN is edited out - pretty irritating, especially since the purpose of the verse is to make the speaker sound ignorant. Kind of ironic. I'd wait for the unedited version if I had it to do over again. I think the rest of the songs are unscathed.

- Best of the "Best of" !!

The Money for Nothing album is a superb compilation of much of the best of the group's earlier works. Dire Straits' "best of" albums are all good, but they share many of the same songs. If you want to avoid having multiple copies of songs you have to look at the differences between these compilation albums. My preference was Money for Nothing because it has a balanced sampling of songs from the first five albums (it was released before the 6th album, On Every Street, so doesn't have any tracks from that album). On the other hand, the Sultans of Swing and Private Investigations compilations focus on the last four albums, especially Brothers in Arms, and almost completely ignore the first two albums. I think the first three albums are the group's best, so my nod to the Money for Nothing compilation was a no-brainer. It includes three early tracks...Down to the Waterline, Portobello Belle, and Where Do You Think You're Going...that don't appear on any of the other compilations. The album also has two live tracks, Portobello Belle and Telegraph Road, that are quite good.

Notes: The album's Money for Nothing and Brothers in Arms tracks are edited versions, but the editing was smoothly done and does not in my opinion detract from the songs' integrity. What does irk me though, is that a different studio version of Where Do You Think You're Going was used, instead of the considerably better version from the Communique album.

- prompt shipping, excellent condition on arrival

Don't twitter, I don't Facebook, my cell phones is only a phone and I'm still buying CD's. I'll buy a Kindle when they quit printing books and the older rock is what I like. Dats B De story!

Nowhere in your description did you mention the album was edited. After first listen, I noticed that Money For Nothing has a whole verse cut out, even though the lyrics for that verse are in the liner notes. What is this, some sort of sanitized version? False advertising....not happy at all. How do I return it?
