What more can be said about one of this countries greatest talents. Mark Knopflers talent made Dire Straits one of the greatest bands of all time and that talent continues today in his , numerous, albums and in particular, his music for film. This superb album is played by a group of the very best musicians, in their respective fields and of course the music is first class.
The guitar melodies are subtle lyrics of one's mind. The short tones 'Waiting for Her' continuing in 'Meeting Under the Trees' shortly entice you away in seconds. However, the enchanting tracks 'Irish Boy', and 'The (Long) Road' convey the aura of inspirational but peaceful clarity of mind and spirit. You are sure to feel your loved one's embracement - whether near or far.... Enjoy both!
Bought this for my sister who is an avid Mark Knopffler fan. I wasn't aware she already had the vynl version. She appreciated the later technology though. This is a very dated music selection now from the film Cal, but the guitar licks, bends and the sheer sound only Knopffler can make with an electric guitar really come out on this album. If only I could play like that!!
The music on offer here is relaxing, uplifting, and takes the mind on a gentle voyage of relaxation. Knopfler is at his best here, combining virtuoso guitar performances with soul- stirring undertones from the accompanying instruments. Highly recommended.
What guitar work the bloke is unquestionably a genius and this shows in this film soundtrack dont know what other superlatives to lay upon this but if you like Knopfler make this one for your collection
Being a fan of Mark Knopfler I have a collection of his CD's and this is one I have cosidered for some time. The price was vg. and it is a great moody style listening experience, I am now trying to source the DVD of the film but have only been able to find an expensive video. hopefully it may be on one of the TV channels.
