When Mark Knopfler Set Sail For Philadelphia - The solo album catalogue of Mark Knopfler contains nothing but exquisitely crafted songs that uniquely tie together the roots music of British and American culture.

Since then, Mark's rate of productivity has travelled in the opposite direction from t...

Booker T And The MGs Take The Beatles To ‘McLemore Avenue’ - When The Beatles released Abbey Road, on 26 September 1969, it was not met with universal admiration. Some reviews were somewhat critical… even some fans were confused. Time has been much kinder, however, with many coming to recognise the album as a classic.
