Communiqué 8-Trk, Album. Warner Bros. Vendi questa versione. Communiqué Cass, Album. When 'Communique' was being recorded, Dire Straits' first, self-titled album was just becoming noticed world-wide. Instead of recording in London in February, on a tight budget, as they had with their first album, Dire Straits found themselves in the Bahamas in December with a different production team. The overall 'sound', if compared to their first release, is a bit more laid-back. Perhaps, as some have suggested, due to the tropical locale of their second recording.

The best tracks are the first three and the last two. These bear the greatest resemblance to the first album. The middle section is more commercial-sounding. Unfortunately it was essentially downhill from here for Dire Straits, with some exceptions.
