Mark Knopfler ~ Get Lucky
My son surprised me with this cd yesterday because I had told him it was one I wanted to buy for myself soon! (along with the much anticipated Dan Fogelberg cd which will soon be available)
Well - It's my son's birthday but he gets ME the gift! :) That's the sweet son for you!
Lucky me! :)
I have just had an extraordinary experience... one that I can not even put into words! I have no words to do this justice! This is the most superb music I have ever heard - ever!!
I think Mark Knopfler is better right now-at this point in his life and career- than he was in younger years with Dire Straits. ( And that's saying a lot, coming from me, because I love everything I have ever heard of Dire Straits!)
I have spent, literally, several hours listening to the new Mark Knopfler cd - 'Get Lucky!' I have played it through and followed each word, two maybe three times. Then I decided to look for vids! And- Oh, yes! There are vids on - even though this cd was just released...even a few of live concert footage! What a treasure trove for me!! :)
**I HAVE to see this guy again in concert!! Have to see if it's possible for me on his current tour! Wish me luck!**
EVERY song on this cd is superb...meaningful lyrics-excellent guitar and other instruments mingling together to create a sound that's ...well-indescribable!
You just have to hear it for yourself- buy this cd-get into the music and the words- the stories-of these songs!
Because ALL the songs are so good I had a hard time picking just one- but I finally settled on this one!
