Mark Knopfler- Once Upon a Time in the West- Dallas 9-8-19

To herald the upcoming forty-fifth anniversary of the sublime but overlooked second Dire Straits album, here is a tasty live performance by Mark Knopfler in Dallas/Ft. Worth of a song from it, "Once Upon a Time in the West", which would surface on the second Dire Straits album, "Communique".

Dire Straits- Best pt 1- Mark Knopfler

Like David Bowie did five years before and Sting would repeat five years later, Dire Straits' October 1980 third release "Making Movies"  is Mark Knopfler's unabashedly "Big Apple" album through the eyes of an Englishman in New York who had grown up an ocean away on Hemingway, Kerouac, Ginsberg, and Bob Dylan.
