    several purchases today:



    MARK KNOPFLER & EMMYLOU HARRIS "all the roadrunning"
    been meaning to get this one for a while and finally saw it in store today



    RAG 'N' BONE MAN "human"



    ED SHEERAN "divide"
    loved the first three singles from it...



    TEMPLES "volcano"
    loved their debut set a couple of years ago,
    posted this as a new release in the last 24hrs, superb IMO



    TOM WAITS "blue valentine"
    I like Tom but never owned anything, not sure
    if this one is a good place to start with his music or not
    but I bought it anyway

    I have the Knopfler/Harris album and DVD. Both very good.

    I figured youd have that one Jerome...big fan of both artists that you are.
    Im looking foreward to unwrapping it and giving it a whirl over the next few weeks,
    expecting big things from it myself.

    Hmm, is that a new Knopfler one or an older one? Thoughts on it? I keep saying one of these days I'm going to start listening to his solo output, and then never do. Furthest I got was a bootlegged concert of his and 2 shows he played with Clapton. :\

    I suggest starting with 'Screenplaying', a collection of instrumental movie soundtracks he has done over the years. It's a very laid back album and his guitar input is minimal but highly effective. For his vocal stuff 'The Ragpicker's Dream' & 'Tracker' would be my favourites.

    gotta say I agree with you 100% Jerome,
    BTW, still haven't listened to the Emmylou one yet.

    I enjoy Privateering ... some great songs on that, and it really grows on you.

    I have that album Ruby but for some or other reason it has been forgotten about??? Will have to dig that out today. Also like 'Kill To Get Crimson' as well. In fact there is very little of his material I don't like, either solo or with the Straits. The man's an enigma. I was fortunate enough to see him in Brighton some years back. Masterful performance.
