    Yes that is true. In the preview video for the last album "Tracker", he mentioned using a vintage mic in order to get a particular sound for some of the songs. No digital DSP for Mark - it had to be the real thing. Unimaginable in today's digital world.

    Mark is just a phenomenal song writer. True wordsmith in the best sense of the word.
    "Song for Sonny Liston" from Shangri La and "Sailing to Philadelphia" are some examples.
    The imagery painted in "Prairie Wedding" from Shangri La is just phenomenal.

    Unfortunately Tracker didn't do it for me so I'm hoping this time will be better.

    Agree, great song. It’s actually from Sailing to Philadelphia album.

    Tracker is also fantastic. I found it to be a grower. For me, it took repeated listens and over time I have come to love that album as well. All of his solo albums are excellent IMO. I’m sure his soon to be released album will be no different. An automatic purchase for me.

    Without a doubt, I expect “Wherever ....” to follow the vibe of Tracker more so than Sailing or Shangri-La.

    Thanks for catching that. I got the albums mixed up.

    You are right that his albums grow on you the more you listen to them - "Lights of Taormina" and "Wherever I Go" are two songs from Tracker that I like a lot. The "Kill to Get Crimson" album is another ... full of hidden gems.

    Looking forward to "Down The Road Wherever"

    An amazing performer and composer. Listening to Tracker right now and loving it.

    I’m jaded so to me there is no bad Knopfler.

    Highly recommend getting some of his live “Tracker Tours”.

    Neil Young claims to care about DR and SQ and I’m a Neil Young fan BUT no one walks the walk better than Knopfler

    Agree. I didn’t know about “Tracker Tours”. I searched and found a YouTube Tracker Tour show from Milwaukee. Streamed it while working last night. Sounded great on my little Bluetooth portable speaker. Thanks for the tip. Are there official downloads of the Tracker tour?


    Edit : never mind. Just found the link on his official website. I will definitely be downloading some shows! Never had the pleasure of catching Mark live.
