The Mark Knopfler of the 2020's will not release an EP with only 4 tracks.
He will LOL about that.
When I think of an EP of MK it has a duration of approx. 25-30 Minutes
A single has 3-4 tracks. An EP maybe 4-8 songs. Depends on the length of each song.
in the End it will be as long as the WTD EP. Just my guess.

So 2024 I see a MK album full with songs plus Bonus tracks plus later a Bonus EP with another batch of tracks.
Maybe different style from the Original album. Sax and trumpet

WTD EP? Wag the dog was called a "mini album".

The format "EP" (Extended-Play record) came from the old days of vinyl-production. Best examples are vintage EP-Singles of the 1950s and 1960s by Elvis, Beatles, Stones and other Rock-n-Roll or Beat-Artists. Format was in all cases a 7-inch record pressed with 2 Tracks on each side, sometimes with 3 Tracks on each side. In the past, the EP-Single was a technical novum with a much longer duration on each side. The term "EP-single" found its way in the record-collectors community till today. :think
OK, i´m of the opinion, that Marks new album will be released in different forms: a Standard-CD-Album, a Deluxe-CD-Album filled with bonus-songs or with a bonus-disc, a BOX-Set with Vinyl-records, CDs, DVD or EP-Discs or something like that, or a seperate Vinyl-variant 2-LP-Set is also possible, maybe a single vinyl EP-disc with the 3-6 Tracks on it, on the 7-inch, 10-inch or 12-inch format. Everything or nothing is possible. Let´s wait for it.  8)

I know where you coming from but he can do as he wissen to do. Using the word "mistake" implies that there could we a "right" way to do it. It's all possibilities but not right or wrong. I love Privateering exactly as it is and the blues songs open new horizons and make it more open. So am I wrong?

LE

There's no "wrong" in art of course. I hate this word. There are, however, strange anomalies like too many bonus tracks, great songs "downgraded" to bonus tracks, bonus tracks for some countries, or releasing a more expensive and longer double album for whatever reason.

My opinion was, that since Mark's blues is almost a genre on its own (Mark has a very unique take on blues), it would be great to have it on an EP rather than shelved among other songs. You don't need me to know Mark's blues songs get fewer listens than his non-blues ones (2, 3 fold and up).

I love Privateering for what it is also, I don't have a choice, but in a parallel universe, where this idea materialised, that would be great.

Would be interesting to see how such an album would look, with the current songs.

Regarding "Privateering", is true that mixing the songs makes it more wide in musical terms, but artistically, put the blues songs apart in a blues record it would had been nice too.

I think that the only reason we are having a cd and an ep for the new recording songs is that MK thought the new songs were good enough but he already had the cd mastered and didn't want to redo it again, so kept the cd mastered and decided to release those extra songs apart.

Let's see if he release both things at the same time or maybe as LE suggested, the EP waits to the Record Store Day, which I hope he doesn't, as that is November, I think...
You might get lucky, now and then

Isn't it April? I thought of it because April would fit so well.

I've kind of got bored with record store day now.

A good idea but they are scraping the barrel a bit now and releasing stuff that isn't really very appealing.

Metroland is a good example, you can buy brand new copies here for £10 and under. Encores sells on ebay for not much more.

Yes i agree. For the first two or three times, the record-store day concept was pretty good, if there are some really interesting releases. Today it is more a commercialized thing with the re-releases of well known albums, maxis or single-records. Much of such record-store-day stuff is seen on the online-marketplaces for ridiculous prices. So the philosophy of RSD is not more given currently.  :think

The Honky Tonk Demos - It was something wonderful.
They should release the ExtendeDancEPlay EP or "Comfor And Joy" Or, for example What It Is single in a Mexican version  :D

Honky Tonk Demos was great yes but that was a while ago now.

You can still pick up original Extended Dance Plays for next to nothing. Now that Live and the BBC and On The Night are available in the box there's not much that isn't easy to get on vinyl. Maybe ATRR.

Yes, the original Extended-Play record by Dire straits on all known formats, 7-inch single with 3-Tracks, 12-inch single with 3 or 4 tracks are easily to get, also in pristine condition. So that record makes no sense to be a further RSD-release. Comfort and Joy 3-track maxi-single was released in UK, Netherlands, Spain and as a special 6-track variant in Argentina with Extended Play on B-side. For that record you will need a little patience to get a great copy, but it is also possible. For some vinyl-maniacs, incl. me, there are some examples, like Wag the Dog as vinyl-variant, A shot at glory as vinyl, Altamira as vinyl-variant, a new edition of Mark Knopfler with Emmylou Harris, will be great, too. Don´t forget the Dire Straits-side project "K Wallis B and the dark shades of night". There are two UK-only releases known in 1987, a 7-inch single and a 12-inch maxi-single. So that are my personal ideas for some new releases on vinyl.  8)
