Half of the songs of Local Hero musical are the typical musical songs with most of the cast singing, but the other half could be easily on any MK solo record and they would be instant favourites for some of you, I'm sure.

Two of my all times MK songs favourites are in that musical.

It's true.

I'm wondering if everyone who just wants to hear new Mark Knopfler songs has listened to all the songs from the Local Hero musical?

........................, but even in bootleg form there are some fantastic MK songs there for you to enjoy.

I never heard any of these songs before, what bootleg are you talking about ?

There are audience recordings of Edinburgh and Chichester but circulating in private, I'm sure someone would share them with you if you want them.

I just don't understand why some people can't accept Mark is a different person these days, he is never going to be the long guitar solos man ever again, so, why expect him to make songs like that? He is being true to himself in that way. I like the more laidback Mark now, we will always have those epic songs to listen to, now, it's about something different, and I praise him for that. It's lots of new Knopfler songs I always want, I am not bothered about the solo's anymore.

Exactly my thoughts!  :thumbsup

Mark has given us so many great songs in the past and continues to give us wonderful music today, so all we need to do is say THANK YOU, nothing else.
This is all the heaven we've got right here where we are in our shangri-la.

Yes to that. And while most of his newer songs are definitely "unhurried", they can still be epic. Lights of Taormina, The Fish and the Bird, Follow the Ribbon, Silver Eagle, Seattle, Just a Boy Aways from Home ... all of them slow, and all of them epic.

It was a simple thank you for what we received. And that's all. We so rarely say thank you.

And the fact that this forum exists is, in itself, the biggest thank you there could be.

About "unhurried" (some will say: boring) music:

I was listening to Neil Young's "Harvest" for the very first time yesterday. Call me a total ignorant (and you'll be right), but somehow I never got to Neil Young up to this date. I saw the album mentioned somewhere, and thought I'd give it a listen. I was unaware of the fact that this is his signature album, and was a billboard no. 1 back then. I just thought: Okay, here's an album that some people seem to like, let's see how it is.

Now, the reason I'm mentioning this: The album is good, I liked it a lot. But in no way is it something that immediately says: hit record! It's totally unassuming, simple melodies, (mostly) sparse arrangements, temperate guitars and singing. Nothing groundbreaking even for 1972, nothing bold or loud or risky or experimental. But still very good! There's not one song on it that I didn't like, and several of them I found touching. In short: "Harvest" is in no way better or more surprising on a first listen than what I've heard of Mark's upcoming album so far. And still it seems to have achieved legendary status over time!

I think this status - and Neil Young's in general - may be well deserved. But my reaction, I think, shows that a great record doesn't always need flashy guitar solos, 15-minute song epics, stadium-compatible sing-along choruses or wild experimentation. There is such a thing as "unhurried grace", and it can be great, too. I'm quite confident that "One Deep River" will deliver exactly that.
