Today I have a great interview with Mark Knopfler from around the time of the release of Sailing to Philadelphia. I think you’ll like it (sorry about the Finnish subtitles)! Let’s listen………..
James dueted with Mark on Sailing to Philadelphia singing the part of Charlie Mason while Mark sang the part of Jerimiah Dixon. As described on Wikipedia, Charlie and Jerimiah are…..
…the two English surveyors who established the border between Pennsylvania and Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia in the 1760s. The border later became known as the Mason-Dixon Line and has been used since the 1820s to denote the border between the Southern United States and the Northern United States.
I truly love the song and the voices of James and Mark sound great together. As always……let me know what you think.
As it turns out there was another great duet on the Sailing to Philadelphia album. This one between Mark and Van Morrison on a great song called The Last Laugh. Let’s listen…..I think you will really like it!
