There are only a few CDs that get regular rotation in my player - meaning it is rare to go even a month between listenings. After 12 years, this disc is still in regular rotation. A classic "Desert Island Disc" - if I could only have on disc with me when I was stranded, it would be a toss up between "Sailing to Philadelphia", "Quadrophenia", "Aqualung" and "The Who By Numbers". Stylistically, this disc is nothing like the others, but the lyrics are amazing, and Knopfler's playing is like water on a fast simmer, just about to boil over, but barely controlled. His tone and note choices are impeccable, and the duet w/ James Taylor is beyond this world. Buy two copies and share it - it is THAT GOOD!
I would recommend this to a friend
