MARK KNOPFLER - Down The Road Wherever [Deluxe edition] (2018) full

MARK KNOPFLER is returning from a three-year hiatus on November 16 with the release of “Down The Road Wherever“, his ninth solo album. The album features new songs inspired by a wide range of subjects, including Knopfler’s early days in Deptford with Dire Straits.
Knopfler produced the record along with former Dire Straits keyboardist Guy Fletcher, who has been one of his primary collaborators since the group disbanded in 1995.

Knopfler tends to be at one remove from the narrative arc of his songs, even those born of personal experience. Perhaps his training as a reporter taught him to remain detached – just tell the bloody story, he might have been told.
And boy, can he tell stories. Knopfler is the ‘sultan’ of storytelling.

There are 14 tracks on this (2 extras in this version), his ninth solo album, and, if there are few surprises in that they all fold into that warmly familiar Knopfler soundscape, there are no duds either.
Now 69, Knopfler has long been a master of his craft, writing from personal memory and knowledge of social history, particularly his adopted Northeast.
A richly detailed record which won’t disappoint Knopfler solo and Dire Straits fans.
