Product Description

2013 two CD release from the British guitarist, songwriter, producer and former Dire Straits leader. Privateering is Knopfler's first double album, each song an original. They cover a wide range of locations and characters from both sides of the Atlantic and move through a number of genres which include several new Blues originals. The album is a soulful and heartfelt collection masterfully performed by a group of world class players. In addition to what has become Knopfler's long-time band, hand-picked guest aces include Kim Wilson (harp) of the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Tim O'Brien (mandolin), singer Ruth Moody of The Wailin' Jennys, Paul Franklin (pedal steel) and Scotland's Phil Cunningham (accordion). Twenty new titles were recorded at the artist's British Grove Studios in London with the following players: Richard Bennett (guitar), Jim Cox (piano) Guy Fletcher (keyboards), John McCusker (fiddle), Mike McGoldrick (whistle and flute), Glenn Worf (bass) and Ian Thomas (drums). Knopfler was assisted by co-producers Guy Fletcher and Chuck Ainlay.

I've been a fan of Mark Knopfler's music since I first heard Sultans of Swing on the radio and immediately ran out and bought the first Dire Straights album back in 1978 or 1979.

I've bought several Mark Knopfler albums through Amazon over the years so Amazon's marketing sent me an email about this one before it was released. I pre-ordered this one before the release date and it just arrived. It's currently on its first run through my CD player.

On the first play through I can say with certainty that this album is up to Mark Knopfler's usual high standards. With a few exceptions, it's definitely on the mellow side but Knopfler has a real talent for doing this kind of material and that talent shines through here.

Bottom line: another excellent Mark Knopfler album.

Being a long time Mark Knopfler fan going back to 1979 when `Sultans of Swing' first hit the airwaves, I was very happy to receive this double album opus. In my opinion Knopfler reached a peak with his last album `Get Lucky' and I wasn't sure this album could hold up to that one. But I was wrong. It may not surpass his last album but it certainly reaches the same level of excellence in artistry, creativity and pure musical genius. It is a joy to listen to his music especially when you compare it to the garbage on the radio these days. Most of which makes me gag. It is so sad that many people the world over will never experience music such as this because it just has not been made available to them. Instead they think great music comes from acts like Britney Spears and Justin Bieber because unfortunately those are the ones that get all the airplay and attention. What a sick world we live in.

Knopfler's music is very complex and demands multiple listenings before you can digest it all. I just love the fusion of celtic, country & rock. The lyrics tell you a story or experience and make you think. Some of his songs are from another time and place. But not so remote that you can't relate to them on a human level. His use of the guitar is very original as he allows the instrument to `talk' or evoke emotion - from happiness & joy to sadness & grief. I can't praise this man enough. He seems to be getting better with age. Every time a new release comes around I don't hesitate to buy it with no regrets ever. I feel he has really hit his stride since `Kill to Get Crimson', `Get Lucky' and now `Privateering". I also loved the album `All the Road Running' with Emmylou Harris. It contains some outstanding songs.

Just listened to Mark Knopfler's new album on vinyl. No surprises here. Mark has slowed down the tempo. There are no swinging songs on this record. His voice is strong and mellow. Some songs sound like a blend of John Lee Hooker, and J.J. Cale with Mark blended in. This album sounds more folk like with a blues beat at times. Few of the songs stand out and the music is good to relax to or eat dinner to. A must for Mark lovers. Not his best, but worth a listen to.

This album is second coming of his earlier masterpiece 'On Every Street'. No more super mellow stuff like last two albums.

How does he do it? Touring writing and producing?
I'm treating this C.D. like ice-cream try not to listen to it too often.. it is just that special.
I love the song Little Bluebird, Corned Beef City and Blood And Water the best now..
The mix of Southern Blues and Celtic music is fab. He uses imagery and metaphone in his lyrics to paint beautiful pictures! Gorgeous C.D. can you tell I like it a lot?? LOL

Song after song, scene after scene, story after story - Mark Knopfler is better than ever. I have it for more than a month now, and still I spin at least one of the four sides every day. And it does not matter what kind of the music you are fan of; this album is so much more than just a few superbly recorded songs. Like a reading a great collection of short stories which you can't put down: long after the last notes decay, you wonder and think about those stories. That is art.

It's Mark Knopfler. The man and his talent age like fine wine. Nothing more needs to be said. Highly recommended to Dire Straits fans, or to fans of fantastic, well thought out, brilliant music.
