I guess it was inevitable that after last Saturday, with Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” incredibly accompanied by David Gilmour’s guitar expertise, I would move forward just a few years to 1982.
Dire Straits released their “Love over Gold” album, and one of the highlights of that album was “Telegraph Road”. Again, like “Comfortably Numb”, the story-line of the song was a little unusual and (like “Comfortably Numb”) there is some very dominant guitar work … this time by Mark Knopfler. For piano lovers, there is some lovely melody sharing with the guitar.
Much as I enjoy the complete performance, I am tempted to say that things do noticeably take off around 9:30 … but there so many wonderful parts to this song! Enjoy!
