    This one of Mark Knopfler's greatest talents - getting other talented musicians to join him to crank wonderful tunes together. His collaboration with Emmy Lou and Chet Atkins, although I like the Emmy Lou one better. Besides I think he must have been banging her like a drum for a few years... am I jealous?

    What's the deal, I think they make a damn fine duo. Yet not as good as his duet with Chet Atkins.

    Never understood why the album has a picture of an aeroplane on it.........'Sailing ??'.

    I'm not that big a fan JTs usually either - but I think Taylor matches and blends with Knopfler quite well on this one

    I could do without James Taylor, but Mark is just great.

    Such a rare blend of amazing lyrics, melody and soul. Mark can make mundane special (case in point Old Pigweed, Quality Shoe). Love and respect to M.K.
