I haven't had a chance yet to pick this cd up but have every intention of it asap. My friend Roxanne is flying out to Michigan to see them in concert! Does anyone know where I'd find their tour schedule? If they are coming my way, I definitely need to go.

Earlier this week I was sick at home...too incapacitated to even lift a guitar! Instead I surfed a bunch of youtube videos. There is some great vintage Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler stuff, with some interviews where he talks about his technique. I was a huge fan during my college days, and I always wondered how he did what he did...from his comments I don't imagine I will pick it up anytime soon.

I found this track with Emmylou Harris accompanying Iris Dement quite compelling...she is a wonderful harmony singer.

looked like the ernie ball volume pedal when I saw him last year. The cd was really pretty good, but I am a knopfler fan, not big on emmylou.

heart of gold was also outstanding, serious goodness. Emmylou did look like skeletor though. she has sort of a hot old lady vibe, but again her face is so drawn that I am put off
