Mark Knopfler Privateering
Now here is a guy who you could say has done it all, from Rock to Pop to country, Folk and now --------
But no matter the what the style is it still has the signature guitar work beautifully well crafted melodies with prolific lyrics and magnificent storytelling through his songs that Mark is well known for.
This is Marks seventh solo album, it has a ------- feel to it
My picks from this album would be Privateering, Red Bud Tree, another addition you will find on the three disc deluxe package is a disc of unmastered/unmixed tracks from previous sessions.
Overall I am enjoying Marks latest trick in his music career.
Mark Knopfler Tracker
Mark Knopfler has released to the world 13 more of his musical children in the form of his 8th solo album entitled Tracker.
The feel of this album is like revisiting/catching up with old friends in the form of musical styles, this is evident in the first single Beryl which harkens back to the days of early Dire Straits.
Mark gets his inspiration from observing/reading about events and putting himself in the place of the people associated with those events, the tracks Beryl and Basil being prime examples.
This album is just continuing proof Mark is a masterful storyteller,wordsmith and songwriter who has a wide range of musical skills ranging from pop,rock,folk and classical whose melodies flow nicely in his overall eclectic collection of work.
