INFIDELS again
« on: February 20, 2012, 12:32:06 pm »
It's lost on me why INFIDELS should be shown as being (newly?) released in March 2012 but it is.  Here is the listing on Amazon, which I've only really posted because the MK fans may like to read the two comments about it:-

Yes nice reviews, but I'm not sure about Mark's "Espresso Love" era guitar chops and
ratatatats all over every track"

many riffs and solos are played by the great Mick taylor, not by Mark

but Mark's parts are also very nice  :)

Not a normal label that's releasing that record, right? Is it official at all?
any Knopfler, Floyd or Dylan will do....

As far as they dont re-release the record as it had to be in 1983 when MK left the sessions for a while... its a no sense.

I agree with MK words, many songs sound like rough demos, and its unbelievable that Willie McTell was left out... This Dylan has no idea.

 ;D
You might get lucky, now and then

Infidels is one of my fave BD albums - his singing and the overall album sound is wonderful. I think the electric Blind Willie would've fit better than the take everyone knows and loves but that's the mystery of Bob for you!
Hey, i`ve got a truffle dog - finally a song the ordinary man can relate too!

thanks for that. I don't think I ever really listened to it.
Got it in my car at the moment. Love the drums!
