Memory Associations

I was meandering around over at Brigid's place and she had a music post from Mark Knopfler that I really liked. While I posted a comment about having the opportunity to see Dire Straits live many years ago, it reminded me that I caught a television broadcast of Dire Straits wherein Chet Atkins made a guest appearance. I seem to recall that Mark was a great admirer of Chet. So with the awesome power of the interwebs I went on the hunt.

There's more. I'll be back in a while.

Postscipt: After watching the video a few times it is a little creepy in a Deliverance sort of way. At the same time, it reminds me so much of Beckville, Tx around 1965 or so. Part of my roots.


  1. I love love love Mark Knopfler's duet with Emmy Lou Harris on "Why Worry"

  2. I had forgotten about that song - went and found Emmy Lou and Mark on youtube. that was good
