Review by John Noyd
October 2012

Steering steadily through American roots including hobo boogie, rock-a—billy bop and honky-tonk blues, “Privateering,” is ironically available only as an import.Devoted guitarist, the Dire Straits statesman’s latest journey tackles twenty songs in a double disc he wrote, plays and produces. Sheparding his own crack band with talented guests, Knopfler’s nimble pickin’, whiskey-tinged whispers and casual narratives flower, growl and shine in duffle-bag shuffles, backroom ballads and wistful mariner’s shanties, balancing bayou grooves and sly venting between ruminating kudos and pensive remembering. Arriving with a full electric band and a hour plus set Mark tours beside Bob Dylan playing Madison’s Alliant Energy Center November 5th, St Paul’s Xcel Energy Center November 7th then Milwaukee’s Bradley Center and Chicago’s United Center November 8th and 9th.
