Editorial Review:

Although he has experienced popularity on a massive scale with Dire Straits, the band who among other achievements augured in the CD age, Mark Knopfler's artistic concerns have remained steadfast. This, his second solo album, comes four years after his solo debut Golden Heart, and it's a stirring and considered set of transatlantic blues bolstered by contributions from Van Morrison ("The Last Laugh") and James Taylor (the title track). Knopfler's guitar playing is still fresh and alive, merging country picking, folk balladry and electric blues. But it's as a writer that he really impresses--"Baloney Again" is a sensitive portrayal of a black gospel outfit in Jim Crow America, the title track is an intriguing distillation of Thomas Pynchon's doorstopper novel Mason &Dixon and "Silvertown Blues" is an honest appreciation of blue collar endeavour. A lovingly purveyed and honestly crafted collection Sailing To Philadelphia shows Knopfler's talent and commitment are as strong as ever. --Gavin Martin
