Knopfler And Emmylou Harris: Real Live Roadrunning
Review By: Penny
Rondinella, CSO Staff Journalist
legendary artists got together over the past several years and
decided to make this live album. Knopfler's Aussie-rock and
Harris' earthy folk-country stylings mix well together and make
this album something very special.
DVD has a mini interview and a photo shoot where they both (Knopfler
and Harris) talk about the project that became their previous
album. There are some other things that are included, such as a
warm-up session (a little jam session) where the players all sit
around and play acoustically to get ready for the show. I love
jam sessions, they aren't really performing for you, just
kicking around some tunes, and I really like that kind of thing.
It is definitely an addition to this project.
the concert portion they play a nice mix of songs from the
Knopfler and Harris album, "All the road
running" along with some of Knopfler's gems from his solo
work along with a few Dire Straits tunes. Knopfler brings out
several guitars and shows what he can do with them.
for me were:
Dug Up A Diamond" (my love of mandolins and the mixing with
Knopfler's guitars - awesome)
Worry" (with Mark & Emmylou singing together - amazing)
Staggerwing" (twangy track with a fantastic fiddle solo)
Is Us" (who doesn't love the piano and there is a super
ending to the song)
Now" (an extended live version)
To Nazareth" (Dire Straits fans, your going to love this
one, Knopfler's guitar work is down
set comes as a CD / DVD combo, so if you caught the tour, pick
up this album, it makes a great souvenir.
Check out the video interview!
