Biography

When they agreed the unwritten law that time-honored artists with brilliant track records get less creative as they go on, Mark Knopfler obviously wasn’t paying attention. He was too busy writing, recording, touring and enjoying it all.
So as we approach the end of the first decade of the 21st century, and other multi-million-sellers nudge their careers forward at a snail’s ... Read more in Amazon's Mark Knopfler Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific DVD, Superfluous CD November 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This set comes as a CD / DVD combo, but after listening to (and viewing) the DVD, I can't imagine when I would ever listen to the CD. There is nothing wrong with it, but the DVD has more songs and when played through a good home theater with DTS capability, it has an unmatched sound quality. Even if I simply wish to hear music, I'll load the DVD, set it up to DTS, and then turn off the TV. This is the quality of sound that makes it clear why we don't just have a DVD player hooked straight into the TV, and why we tolerate a room full of speakers. If you can't decode DTS, you are missing a lot with this DVD.

The DVD has a mini interview / photo shoot where both Knopfler and Harris talk about the project that became their previous album. There are some other nice things included, such as a warm-up session where the players all sit around and play acoustically to get into the mind-set for the show... just a little jam session.

The actual concert was a nice mix of songs from the Knopfler / Harris album, "All the road running" along with some gems from Knopfler's solo work and even a couple of Dire Straits tunes. Knopfler is not stingy about allowing Harris to sing songs from the back catalog, and some of the duets from even the Dire Straits era sound like they could have been cut for the last project.

A couple of highlights for me:

Song for Sonny Liston: Wow! This track is a real minimalist delight. Mark sits on a chair hits that shuffle and sings. A bit later some drums and an acoustic upright base come into the mix. It is feel, rhythm and story, not flash or superficial fluff. Knopfler takes a verse to solo a bit, but this is also understated, yet great. The base player and Mark play off of each other and then some more vocals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than The Studio Versions November 15, 2006
By S. King
Format:Audio CD
The blending of Mark and Emmy Lou's vocals do make for an amazing collaboration. I saw this tour live at Radio City Music Hall, and they certainly were a crowd pleasing act.

By the time this show was recorded Mark and Emmy Lou had plenty of time to hone their craft with regards to singing with each other and performing these songs. As a result I find them more entertaining than the studio produced versions of these songs (especially the songs from the "All The Roadrunning" Album).

Highlights here are: "Right Now"...(a great extended live version)

"Red Staggerwing"...(check out the extended fiddle solo!)

"This Is Us"...(beautiful piano ending)

and "Speedway To Nazareth" (for all you Dire Straits fans; Mark's guitar work is incredible!)

Emmy Lou's voice is beautiful and here classic song: "Red Dirt Girl" is included here also.

These two are legendary musicians, and this live CD/DVD makes a winning combination. This live show is a must have for fans of either (or both) artists.

Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have January 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Simply put, Emmylou Harris has the voice of an angel. And her pairing with Mark Knopfler is superb. We were fortunate to actually be at the concert that was recorded so it makes it really special for us. We have been fans of Emmylou's from her beginning with Gram Parsons. And although I am familiar with Mark Knopfler's work with Dire Straights I did not know his solo work, which is featured on this DVD. Although his work was new to us it did not let us down. Their voices blend beautifully from song to song, whether singing from their well crafted All The Roadrunning CD to their own works. It was an incredible moment when Emmylou starts into Boulder To Birmingham. It is a true classic.

One thing I really enjoyed about this concert DVD is that it is the concert and nothing more, except for the bonus added features. There isn't alot of those annoying audience shots and no commentary in between songs. It's the concert and it's well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing collaboration! November 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Two great artists working together! A great CD & DVD from beginning to end! I saw their show in Boston just before this one and they were amazing together. Highlights: Mark playing "Song For Sonny Liston" and Emmylou playing "Red Dirt Girl". Each disc ends with Dire Straits "Why Worry" with Mark & Emmylou singing together, a great rendition of a great song! If their CD "All The Roadrunning" isn't nominated for a Grammy then somethings wrong with the system!

Format:Audio CD
In Spring 06, superstar duo Mark Knopfler (of Dire Straits fame) and Emmylou Harris issued a long anticipated collaborative album "All the Roadrunning", which for me personally was a bit of a let down, as it felt more like a Knopfler solo-album that featured Emmylou Harris. Last summer they toured together to promote the album, and this CD/DVD combo, released November 06, is the result of it.

"Real Live Roadrunning" brings both a CD and DVD. As to the CD (14 tracks, 75 min.), it becomes immediately clear that this is superior to the studio album and feels much more like a true collaberative effort. The setlist is of course heavy on the "Roadrunning" studio album, as it should be, and there are many stand-outs, like opener "Right Now" and "Red Staggering". There are a couple of Dire Straits tracks as well, but even there, Emmylou gets to contribute significantly, none more than on the concert closer "Why Worry", a gem from the "Brothers in Arms" CD (now 20+ years ago), just beautiful.

The real beauty in this combo is the DVD (130 min.), which brings the concert in its entirety (something the CD could not do because of CD time limitations). Tracks not on the CD include among others "I Dug Up a Diamond", "Born to Run" (no, not the Springsteen song), "Song for Sonny Listow", and "Belle Star", Emmylou's best contribution to the "Roadrunning" studio album. Best of all is that the editing of the concert maximizes viewing pleasure (PBS-like, compared to, say, MTV-like), thankfully not changing camera angles every 2 seconds or so. The interview and pre-concert bonus features are nice (and short), but not essential.

In all, this is clearly the better choice if you are tempted to buy "All the Roadrunning" studio album. Truly 2 legends at the top of their game.
