If you like Americana meets British (or maybe British Isles) Folk, blended and apportioned with sublime musicality, topped with wistful lyrics, and superb guitar (mostly acoustic), well then this one is a gem. There's also loads of it, about 2 hours or more, with 2CDs and a bonus EP and all. Superior to the Richard Thompson release that has come out at more or less the same time, although the genres do not quite match, to be fair.
Sounds like he moved to the Isle of Man, and became all Ellan Vannin-like.
Not quite the Knopfler I like, but not bad.
This one is for sonhouse...... you'll like this mate!
Knopfler and Chet Atkins, no least!!
