Friday fanfare: "Solid Rock"
Taking a break from the holiday tunes because I love this gem I found on the Tube of You....

One of my favorite Dire Straits songs is "Solid Rock," and I particularly like their live arrangement, which adds saxophone to the original studio version on Making Movies, and later kept adding nifty guitar fills and harmonies and such. What I was looking for was this version, from one of the band's last concerts in 1992 in Nimes:

But while looking I found this wonderful version as well, from 1985, where Nils Lofgren of E Street Band and Crazy Horse fame joins the gang for some amazing guitar work.....

Current Mood: happy happy
