If you don't own this album or don't go out and buy it right away you're dumb Part II...

It's been awhile since I did one of these but, it's one of those "It has to move me" kind of things I guess. So, here's one I feel qualifies for "If you don't own this album or don't go out and buy it right away you're dumb..." Fred over at A VC sang praises of this new release not too long ago, and I picked it up and have been checking it out for about a month. I cannot stop listening to it. I've always had mad respect for Mark Knopfler, but never really dove into the deep end with him for no reason I can really point to. Well, I'm a changed man. Mark an Emmylou tear it up on this new release like life long partners. The guys guitar tones are lethal. He's a great slide player and an obvious aficionado of American music in the Rolling Stones sense.

I think Hue or Jackson said it best: Emmylou is the sexiest old lady around. Blended voices as thick as oak trees. Drum sounds that I can only wish to ever come close to creating myself, all over these great songs. Favorites, “I Dug Up a Diamond” and “Right Now”.

I never thought I'd nominate a new release for this, but if you don't own this album or don't go out and buy it right away, well, you're dumb.

Always loved Knopfler's playing. Amazing that on the first few Dire Straits records, most of his solos were, according to him, just his Strat plugged into the board.
