There’s spiritual warfare

slowtrainAfter attending a Dire Straits show during their residency at the Roxy in Los Angeles, Bob Dylan asks Mark Knopfler and drummer Pick Withers to play on the sessions for his next album. Slow Train Coming is the album, recorded in Muscle Shoals in May of 1979, with Jerry Wexler producing. Dylan had first heard Dire Straits’ Mark Knopfler when his assistant Arthur Rosato played him the single Sultans of Swing. Dylan and Knopfler enjoy a happy collaboration, including this wonderful take on Don’t Fall Apart on me Tonight.
