Last Train Leaving
Last Train Leaving
€ 15,90*
David Knopfler is a UK musician who probably needs little introduction. A founding member of the legendary rock outfit, Dire Straits, he left his brother, Mark, and the band behind many years ago, long before it met its inevitable demise, to pursue his own independent music career. And it must be said maybe the music world has benefitted from his free-spirited outlook. With many solo albums behind him, Knopfler has carved out a successful career across much of Europe where his gigs are invariably sold out and his fan-base eagerly anticipate his regular tours.
With Last Train Leaving, Knopfler delivers an album that at times feature his fine keyboard skills and always his elegant fretwork, never overpowering but always skilfully and masterfully understated. Surprisingly there’s even some Dylanesque harp at times. It’s hard not to love particular tracks above others, and for me, “All The Fun Of The Fair,” is one of those simply wonderful cuts, poignant recollections and a warmth at its heart making it little short of irresistible.
Not many would try a rhyme with colonoscopy in there, but here in one track, “I Gave My Heart,” Knopfler somehow or other pulls it off. Each of the fourteen tracks are single stories, melodically wrapped with fine musicianship and a tale to be told. Overall, this entire album is a true delight, roots music at its core with hints of blues, country and rock rippling throughout the mix.
“Perfect Storm” is another track that pulls you in from the initial, opening bars with Knopfler’s vocals bristling and perfectly pitched. If there’s a surprise here, for many it might be the simple thought that looking back at Dire Straits and brother Mark’s own solo output over the years, David Knopfler is the guy who carries a melody and has a voice that is genuinely gripping, harmonic, wonderfully raw and emotive.
If anyone has yet to catch this guy’s solo efforts, Last Train Leaving could well be a perfect introduction and certainly a rewarding release worth catching. Last Train Leaving is that rarity, a musical treat and a thing of true beauty. Grab it while you can.

New STEVE WYNN release on Blue Rose – Solo! Acoustic (Vol. 1) exclusively available through the Blue Rose mailorder and at shows of Steve Wynn!

„Despite 40 years of solo tours all around the world, I had never released a record of just me and my acoustic guitar. I’d thought about it a lot and fans who came to these intimate, stripped down shows would often drift by the merch booth at the end and ask “Which of these records sounds like the show you just played?” I’d point to some older releases like “Fluorescent” or the “Live In Bremen” collection I made in 2003 with Jason Victor but none of the documented history could provide a literal translation of what they’d been watching.

In the last few years I’d been listening quite a bit to Bill Callahan. He’s a great songwriter, daring lyricist and his voice is distinctive and beautiful. But I also really loved the production on his records. They all sound so fantastic. I checked the credits and saw they were almost all recorded by Brian Beattie at a studio in Austin, Texas. I knew that was the sound I’d want to have on my first solo acoustic record.

As it turned out, the Dream Syndicate had a show in Austin on November 1 of last year and I didn’t have to be anywhere for a few days. I got in touch with Brian and he was free those days so I made plans to record a selection of songs from my back catalogue that I thought would suit his approach and sound. I always enjoy this blind-date, travelogue style of working and in the past I tried to make records in which I would choose or write material to represent some mystical fantasy of what my music might sound like, for example, with Chris Eckman in the pastoral city of Ljubljana (“Crossing Dragon Bridge”) or the blunt ferocity of the band Come in their gritty hometown of Boston (“Melting In the Dark.”).

This one was a similar approach. Like many songwriters, I’m often tempted to shelter my lyrics and vocals by adding extra layers so that I feel a little less vulnerable. Not this time. I went for some of the most lyric-heavy, emotionally stark songs in my catalog and knew that the vocal would be the focal point of the record. And that’s exactly what happened. Brian’s approach was indeed to put me in a room, surround me with vintage mics, guitars and processors and just capture my performance in the most honest, stark way possible.

STACIE COLLINS is a DAMN GIRL on her new album!

Damn Girl
€ 14,90*

„We’ve finally completed the 6th Stacie Collins album titled DAMN GIRL! We started recording DAMN GIRL! while on tour back in May with my friend Sir Martin Ekelund at Lemon Studios in Sweden and finished it at my home studio in Nashville. This album is special because for the first time I was able to use my touring band The AL-Mighty 3 featuring Jon Sudbury, Ola Göransson and Al Collins in the studio. Get ready for a ride that has lots of twists, turns, and a few surprises. I think it’s the most diverse record we’ve ever made. All the songs were written by Al and myself along with a few collaborations with Jon and Ola.“ (Stacie Collins)

Following a covers album US RAILS are back with a new album of eleven originals!

Mile By Mile
US RAILS Mile By Mile CD
€ 14,90*

US RAILS continues their journey into the next decade with a brand new record, Mile By Mile (Blue Rose Records). Ben Arnold, Scott Bricklin, Tom Gillam and Matt Muir have made a conscious effort to open the gates and let their Rock n’roll horses run free. This is not to say they’ve abandoned their trademark harmony vocal blend. It’s still there front and center, but with more musical muscle underneath. Drawn from their collective influences and takes on rock and vintage R&B, the good-time recording atmosphere of the recording sessions, during a summertime week in Philadelphia, is palpable on each and every track. These rapidly changing times in the U.S. and around the world, show them wearing some of their thoughts and beliefs, as well as their hearts on their well tattered sleeves. Mile By Mile, the band‘s 5th full length original album, shows them growing even more comfortable and loose, diving into some of their ragged, rock roots in a collection of songs that have some of the feel of the past with an eye toward the future.

What was once just a one off, go-for-the-thrill experiment, has by now become a fixture in the lives of each member of US RAILS while they all continue to pursue thriving solo careers, producing, recording, and releasing countless albums on their own. It is their separate experience, spun together, which adds layer upon layer to the solid bedrock that forms the foundation of this band’s rare and exceptional sound.

US RAILS are now looking forward to taking it all out on the road throughout Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and The Netherlands again this year. Jackson Parten from Austin, Texas will be joining the band on bass guitar for the tour.

A well seasoned, veteran live act, this is a band who has shared the better part of their lives playing masterful, iconic sounding rock and roll in the shadows of the giants but continues to create, evolve, persist, and have a lot of laughs and fun along the way Mile By Mile!
