Product Overview

For several years, the iconic Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris have been quietly recording a remarkable collection of duets whenever the Grammy winning artists could steal away from their own illustrious careers. The extraordinary result is All the Roadrunning. The songs from their Nashville sessions, all originals, while undeniably modern, have the appeal of classics, whether country, Celtic flavored or gently soulful. All the Roadrunning is Knopfler & Harris making music and, as they lyric for "This is Us" puts it, making history.

Artist Overview
Although his much-heralded band, Dire Straits, didn't officially disintegrate until the 1990s, lead guitarist Mark Knopfler had enjoyed an impressively prolific solo career since he was recruited to score the 1983 film LOCAL HERO. The soundtrack's sparse and poignant melodies impressed filmgoers and directors, and an alternate career for the rocker was born. He went on to write acclaimed scores for several films, as well as making notable appearances on albums by a diverse roster of big-name artists. As a solo artist, Knopfler occasionally goes back to his singer-songwriter roots and releases the odd album, to the great pleasure of his many fans. In 2006, he released ALL THE ROADRUNNING, a lovely duet album with singer Emmylou Harris.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.57) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[B]allads like the title track and the Springsteen-esque 'Beyond My Wildest Dreams' are world-wise and gently gorgeous."
Entertainment Weekly (p.73) - "[T]he tension between their vocal personas -- she's ever hopeful, he's relentlessly glum -- is the highlight of ALL THE ROADRUNNING." -- Grade: B-
Uncut (p.126) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "When Harris is upfront -- as on the wonderfully delicate 'Rollin' On' or 'Love And Happiness' -- it's sublime, emotive stuff."
Dirty Linen (p.49) - "When it comes to artistic integrity, commercial appeal, and sheer transcendency, it doesn't get much better than this."
No Depression (p.125) - "[A] remarkably cohesive album...sonically every track here sounds like it belongs..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.98) - 3 stars out of 5 --- "[W]hen translating his trademark languorous picaresques into his'n'hers arrangements the result is a series of ordinary life duets that...suggest moments of sun-setting harmony at the end of tired lives. Real hardcore country..."
