Mark Knopfler The Studio Albums 2009 - 2018 180g Vinyl 9LP Box Set


180g Vinyl 9LP Box Set Gathers Second Half of Solo Songbook; Audio Overseen by Original Mastering Engineer Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering and Vinyl Cut by Bernie Grundman


Mark Knopfler's new 180g vinyl 9LP box set The Studio Albums 2009-2018 gathers together the second half of his solo songbook with more recent studio albums, to add to 2021's The Studio Albums 1996-2007 collection. The box includes Get Lucky (2009), Privateering (2012), Tracker (2015), and his latest release Down The Road Wherever (2018) plus a collection of studio b-sides and bonus tracks and two previously unreleased songs – "Back In The Day" and "Precious Voice From Heaven."


The audio quality has been overseen by the original mastering engineer Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering, while vinyl was cut by Bernie Grundman.


"The Mark Knopfler songbook, since the Dire Straits years, is literally and pleasingly all over the map, and yet without any sense of an album being a miscellany – being merely the next thing Mark Knopfler comes up with," notes Richard Ford. "Cohesion seems instinctual to him, both as a writer and a guitar player.


He has his subjects, as any writer luckily will – youth and aging (often his own), the working grind, the demi-monde, the louche, wandering life of the road, women and love, history, literature, The North of England, Geordie issues. All of these preoccupations get fused into songs – melodies, stories (always stories), settings, characters, dictions, breathtaking guitar virtuosity burning hot from within – which seem always to come round to being about seeking grace; a real-time, minor key, on-the-ground grace. And also frequently about not finding it."


The 9LP collection is housed in a rigid outer slipcase and includes five embossed art prints of each of the original covers.
