[ profile] asol55 , have u seen this? I want that CD! But I don't think there ever was an official release of this session though, maybe bootleg?

Knopfler playing Muddy Waters is cool...

Mark Knopfler's new album Get Lucky is lukewarm at best. Too mellow, too low-key. Literally nothing to write home about except for maybe the aptly named "Cleaning My Gun".

Fucking sad, I expected better.

Ходили на неделе с [profile] asol55 на концерт Нопфлера в Central Park Summer stage.

Марк, как всегда, зажигает. Я хожу на его концерты каждый раз, когда он приезжает в NYC, и это был мой третий. Чем хорош summer stage, так это тем, что он маленький и можно стоять близко к сцене, и всё видеть (с моими очками это важно). Играли они час пятьдесят, всё по честному. Сыграно было много нового и старого, и, несмотря на то, что он не спел Je Suis Desole, концерт мне понравился.

Если вы ещё не поняли -- мне Марка Нопфлера много не бывает.

Вот наборчик с ютюба:

Telegraph Road (Live at Royal Albert Hall, London, 2005) -- старик жжот так, что вообще.

Brothers In Arms (Live at AVO Sessions, Basel, 2007)

Done With Bonaparte (Live at AVO Sessions, Basel, 2007) - совершенно чудный текст

Why Aye Man (Ragpicker's Dream Promotion Video, 2002) - совершенно чудный текст

Je Suis Désolé  (Live "A night in London", 1996) - studio recording is much better, but this one has a slide guitar the studio doesn't.

Song For Sonny Liston (No info, 2005).

Just got my free CD with the new album by one of my all-time favorite musicians - Mark Knopfler. Album is called Kill To Get Crimson. I like it. Overall, it has a slower tempo, some pieces are more ballad-inspired, some have an Irish tinge to them, one has a touch of Richard Thompson's "Waltzing's for Dreamers". I think he was experimenting and he sounds a little less like his usual self on this one. And although I can't say it has really outstanding material like Je suis desole or Done with Bonaparte or Song For Sonny Liston from his previous albums, it is still overall quite pleasant to the ears.
