Down The Road Wherever EU & NA tour / Re: Drums of Ian Thomas

Can you tell me where? Sorry new here...

About marketing, haven't you read the hints on Guys forum? Maybe the artist himself isn't so keen on releasing stuff. I totally agree that the marketing around MK is bad, it has been for years. If he wanted more marketing, I think he would have told his management to do so. I really don't understand it, but I know that Guy knows how frustrated we are about it.

I just had a look at Springsteens merchandise for the new album, already for sale on his site. In addition to t-shirts and a hoodie (really nice at the back! More subtle than the awful bike and wings on the MK hoodie), there is a christmas ornamental for the tree, and a nice pint glass. I liked it  :)

Down The Road Wherever / Re: Rejected cover for DTRW
« Last post by quizzaciously on Today at 02:49:59 pm »
Interesting!
There is a lot going on here... a bit too much for my liking.
At first glance I don't see any connection with the album content so maybe it was a right decision. I wonder if a designer has a chance to listen to the album before coming up with the artwork?

Exactly.

Shangri-La cover is full with songs hints, so... I think the goal was exactly not to have any obvious connection with songs. But I really like it, because Mark's album covers are so simple... With Privateering we've got a side view of trailer with a dog and lots and lots of filters. Ok, it worked! Next go Tracker with a guy (Mark) barely visible and standing on a huge field looking at the sky. What this is all about? And then "Down The Road Wherever" with a road... I mean, you can't get any more obvious than that, that's where it's at. Or Get Lucky — and a shot of a casino in Vegas. Ouch!

I don't say simplicity is so important, but I really like unusuall covers like Shangri-La, an iconic photo of Elliot Erwitt works great, too. But for the most part, the contents of Mark's albums is waaaaay better than their cover. I don't want to hang "Down The Road Wherever" album cover on the wall if you know what I mean. Nor I want to go all the way to Nevada to make a tribute to it, just too boring.

Mark Knopfler Discussion Forum / Re: Going Home vs Wild Theme
« Last post by JF on Today at 11:19:25 am »
yes but to be accurate, the live version of wild theme include the intro of going home, while the studio version of wild theme doesn't have it

Let's discuss why it's called Wild anyway. Whistle Theme is quite obvious, so Wild should be equally obvious? What so wild was happening in the movie that this is the "Wild" theme? As I recall it was playing while the main character was drifting away from Penn on a helicopter. Also I remember it ends very abruptly.

wilf theme is played several times while seing beautiful landscapes : the "wild nature"  I guess this is why it's called wild theme

Basically all clips above are GH, but some of them with an arrangement that very closely matches WT. I never understood why it was called Local Hero/Wild theme on SOS the very best of as it’s the same intro and melody of GH. Something that is slightly different in wild theme which is floatig around the melody more or less. :think

But hey, it’s a beautiful song anyway! No matter if it’s wild or not. ;D

in the studio version, wild theme starts immediately on the melody
in live versions, wild theme starts with the GH intro

listened to Pyroman from the LA concert (2001.05.20, new source) this morning, and never understood people's fascination with this song, such a simple stomper. yikes
