Tracker by Mark Knopfler( Recording )

39 editions published in 2015 in 4 languages and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Knopfler returns with his eighth solo album: entitled 'Tracker' it features 11 new Knopfler songs inspired by a wide range of subjects including Beryl Bainbridge and Basil Bunting. The songs contain Mark's usual wryly but accurately observed vignettes of real life wrapped up in a musical accompaniment of distinctive subtlety. As always, Knopfler allows the musicians space in the recordings to put their own stamp on the material but never interfering in the essence of the song itself. His warm tones of both vocal and guitar combine to give the album its unique MK feel. A dazzling collection of new songs makes this release possibly his most satisfying solo work so far. 'Tracker' has been produced by Knopfler and Guy Fletcher and was recorded at British Grove Studios in London. The band features Mark Knopfler on guitars, Guy Fletcher on keyboards, John McCusker on fiddle, Mike McGoldrick on whistle and flute, Glenn Worf on bass and Ian Thomas on drums. Guest musicians include Ruth Moody (from The Wailin' Jennys) on vocals, Nigel Hitchcock on saxophone and Phil Cunningham on accordion. Knopfler says: "The album title 'Tracker' arrived out of me trying to find my way over the decades. Out of me tracking time - looking at people, places and things from my past, and out of the process of tracking as in recording tracks in the studio." "Part of the fun is thinking what you might have a go at, for a new tour. For me, that's part of the joy of it, getting that little crew together again, and setting sail once again. It's a real adventure."
