 Sultans of swing | | Guardian Unlimited Arts
It was Sultan Seyyid Bargash bin Said, known for his love of music and luxury, who first brought taarab musicians to Zanzibar from Egypt, and introduced Arabic instruments to east Africa.
These days, the Sultan would no doubt be horrified to learn, there are so-called "modern taarab" bands in Zanzibar, who play the old music on electronic keyboards.
It was the sultans who first encouraged music clubs like this - meeting places where musicians and their friends could go after evening prayers to talk, practice, or simply listen.

The shock of hearing "Sultans Of Swing" during the period of all things Clash or Sex Pistols has never worn off.
So while you may finds yourself drawn to the more expansive collection, if you're a casual listener, "Sultans Of Swing" will do ok. Just be aware that the two songs you probably most want here are trimmed from their LP versions.

 Dire Straits : Sultans of Swing: The Very Best of Dire Straits - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Exactly ten years after Dire Straits' first compilation, Money for Nothing, appeared in the stores, their second, Sultans of Swing: The Very Best of Dire Straits, was released.
Though a decade is a significant span of time, Dire Straits had released just two subsequent albums -- 1991's On Every Street and 1993's On the Night, a live album culled from tapes of the record's supporting tour.
Unsurprisingly, it covers much of the same ground as Money for Nothing, containing all the essentials ("Sultans of Swing," "Romeo and Juliet," "Tunnel of Love," "Private Investigations," "Twisting by the Pool," "Money for Nothing," "Brothers in Arms," "Walk of Life"), with the exception of "Telegraph Road," which was left on the earlier compilation.

The music swings relentlessly, always has a smile of its face and, most importantly, the soloists maintain a respect for the era.
Any doubts you may have about the intellectual density of this music being a problem should be dispelled now.
Had you no acquaintance with Tchaikovski you would listen to and enjoy the 14 tracks as great swing arrangements, with a distinct contemporary feel, littered with great soloing by this superb big band.

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.
The songs are predominantly in original studio form and not edited in the case of 'Sultans of Swing', 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Tunnel of Love'.

Beyond showcasing Knopfler's excellent songwriting, this album is graced by his light, technically precise guitar technique (he finger-picks all of his electric leads).

 Rolling Stone : The Sultans of Swing
Hell, if learning to swing-dance means the chance to shag a Heather Graham-type, then BBVD may well be music's answer to the Spanish fly.
Up until the film's thunderous buzz blanketed the country and made swing, which peaked in popularity in the Forties, a Nineties fad of choice, BBVD was just another band trying to make ends meet on the long and winding road.
"The band is so fun to watch live that you don't have to swing dance, but I'll tell ya, it sure is fun when they do," Morris says.
