Millionaire Blues

WOW!!!Just click on purchase...the straits are back!

Great to hear some new Dire Straits material again!

Dire Straits have always been one of my favorite bands. My DS cds have considerable use compared to others. The only thing that has bummed me out is the fact that there they only wrote 6 albums. Although this is only one tune and it was originally recorded for the 'On Every Street' album, it is good to hear something new. Listening to it, I could see how this would have easily fit in with the other cuts on that record. This tune is by no means one of the most memorable compared to some of their truely great stuff, it is, however, worth the $.99. I would really only recommend it for the true DS or MK fan like myself. If your just a casual listener, it probably won't do much for you.

The humorous, lighthearted voice of the Straits brings on another parody type song with this one, very similar to My Parties, wherein he sings, "It's getting a trifle colder - step inside my home That's a brass toilet tissue holder with its own telephone" I won't reveal any wordplay from this one, but its there and you'll smile. Defintely worth a buck to the typical Knopfler fan.

If anything, the band was a direct outgrowth of the roots revivalism of pub rock, but where pub rock celebrated good times, Dire Straits were melancholy. Led by guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler, the group built their sound upon the laid-back blues-rock of J.J. Cale, but they also had jazz and country inflections, occasionally dipping into the epic song...
