When they agreed the unwritten law that time-honoured artists with brilliant track records get less creative as they go on, mark knopfler obviously wasn't paying attention. He was too busy writing, recording, touring and enjoying it all. Get lucky is knopfler's fifth studio album of the decade and was recorded at his award-winning british grove studios in west london and co-produced with long-time cohorts chuck ainlay and guy fletcher. It is a beautifully crafted exploration of a lifetime of musical roots, fluently combining folk and blues with his original song writing and vivid observational lyricism.

Get Lucky is the latest in a series of post-Straits CDs that reward the listener again and again with lyrics drawn from Knopfler's childhood reminiscences, wide travels, and ever-active ear for a compelling story, whether from history, the media, fellow musicians, or acquaintances in the pub.
At times nostalgic, but never maudlin, and with a return to some Celtic overtones, the 11 new tunes on Get Lucky are all solid, each with its own appeal. I look forward to hearing Knopfler play them and others live on his upcoming tour.
While many performers, Live Nation, and Ticketmaster treat fans poorly at times, every Knopfler concert projects respect for the audience through genuine communication, great playing, an intriguing opening act, and at least two hours of music, both old and new, by the master. Another symbol of that respect is the free copy of Mark's current CD which each ticket buyer receives by mail.
In my view, Knopfler remains a class act in every way, and his most recent is well worth purchasing or downloading.
And, yes, he still plays Sultans of Swing at his concerts, at least he did in Vancouver last year.
