Mark Knopfler Discussion Forum / The Jimmy Iovine sound
« Last post by hunter on November 23, 2022, 12:10:27 pm »
I was playing Making Movies yesterday, and during Expresso Love there's a certain chord that rings out that reminded me of something from the Tom Petty song Here Comes My Girl, which is from the album Damn The Torpedoes. Producer? Jimmy Iovine. And indeed that album has a sound and feel reminiscent of Making Movies. Another well-known Iovine-produced album from that era is Springsteen's The River. I created a playlist with these three albums and play them just now on shuffle, and it's remarkable how similar they are in terms sound, feel and musical ideas: Big drums, big space, the piano sound, lots of drive. Here's a quote by Iovine: “I was trying to do something,” Iovine says now, “that I’d never heard before: singer-songwriters with a power sound.” That's exactly what those albums sound like :)

Actually, look carefully to the question, and the answer:

Q:– for it to be ready for a late 2023 release does that mean a band session in early 2023? Can we expect a diary? (Pretty please)

Will have to hold my breathe a bit longer. I’m sure it will be worth the wait. Thanks for all you do and I hope Mark, yourself and families have a good Christmas break.


A: Since we are still recording, that makes sense but I’m not aware of any date or strategy for scheduled release. We are indeed recording additional songs, this week in fact.


The question talks about a band session early 2023 and Guy says it makes sense as they are recording. I understand he means MK and him.

I think the 'makes sense since we are still recording'' part is an answer to the 'late 2023 release'. And he says they are indeed recording the additional songs, this week... But yes, it's a typical Guy answer  ;) So nobody knows until somebody asks...

Looks like a bottleneck.
yes, but in the right hand ?  :think

it's a real shame MK gave up on this style of guitar playing (referring to the live video) and kept it relatively safe for last 2.5 decades since.

"...he does move in mysterious ways"

I like that statement :)

On the one hand I'll take as many songs as possible, but on the other, Privateering didn't really work as as album IMO. Just a random collection of lots of songs.


Privateering has some gems, and I like the sound of that album, but it really is all over the place. The weirdest is the opener, Redbud Tree. In some ways I expected it to set the tone of the album, thematically, but it's just a nice, slowish song which kind of just fizzles out. And it sounds different than the rest of the album. Like it was a leftover from another record. Weird. Not saying Mark is God, but he does move in mysterious ways.

"I hope it will be at least a double album"

And that's a positive thought. I hold on to this hope.

Yes, it's all true. But I'm disappointed. I was hoping for a new album in the spring.

Me too! I am very disappointed. 5 years is quite a long time. Now I hope it will be at least a double album.
