There will be a new Mark Knopfler album called “Shangri-la“, to be released on Sep 27th. I heard the first song “Boom, like that” on the radio yesterday and I really like it. Somehow fall seems to be the time of year when the good records are released.
While looking at the site, I found out that a Live Aid DVD will be released on November 1st. No THAT is really good news – I still remember the event, sitting at home with a video recorder and a tape recorder, trying to capture as much of it as I could. I stayed up all night to watch Phil Collins do his second act in Philadelphia and watched the recorded tapes a zillion times. I also remember Matthew‘s quote on Madonna: “her singing would be much better if she stopped jumping around”. ;)
