David Knopfler – Ship Of Dreams

Toasty Taranna #7: BMV #7: 3-For-$10 Bin #3: David Knopfler – Ship Of Dreams

This is the first David Knopfler solo record I’ve ever owned, which is a mighty damn shame – this was fantastic and I wish I had them all! Of course I love Dire Straits and have all of that but for some weird reason I’ve never looked beyond them. I’ve wasted so much time!

This is acoustic/electric blues/rock/pop done with all of the best sensibilities. Knopfler’s vocals are spot-on, just gravely enough to have an edge but not done as an affect… The songs are whip-smart, and beautifully constructed. This is the kind of album that leaves you feeling like you just had an experience, the kind of experience that elevates and enlightens. Oh yeah…

Loved it. I need more!


Hit It Or Quit It? HIT!

Correction to Payman’s generous review

January 1, 2005 – Published on

Just wanted to point out that the sax player on Ship of Dreams is Tim Whitehead – not Chris White (who plays on my other records)

– both excellent players as it happens. Also that the record is available at for a lot less or at CD Baby or at my website for £8-50 pounds – – nobody should be paying $39 – or anything like it!
