Additional comments Very interesting vinyl release as this single features a studio version of Sultans of swing which is different from the version that can be found on the abum Dire Straits. There are at least three different studio versions of Sultans of swing: this single version / the version on the official album  and The Honky Tonk demos version. The B-side of this single is also interesting; a great live version of Eastbound train, only released on vinyl. Dutch edition.
