Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Val couldn't be clearer then - no Dire Straits.

Wiki says there are nine solo albums to choose from, but then there are loads of soundtracks and collaborations too. Maybe Val can clarify if they are allowed?

Usual rules etc anyway, youtube links (if possible) noms close 10pm Sunday, keep on adding to the upcoming rounds with anything you can think of.

I have tomorrow to get over tonight's gig, then it's a 12 hour metal fest on Saturday! When does the madness end?

Val H. | 14878 comments Thanks Spacepig! I don't have anything against Dire Straits but they would probably be better served standing as a nomination in their own right. I prefer Mark's solo work because of the quality of the lyrics. Happy to have soundtracks and collaborations included here.

Enjoy your Thursday/weekend gigs. Sounds like you're going to have a good time!

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments And there we go....

A close run race this week with a few contenders, but nosing ahead at the end, the Duke's nom, Fare Thee Well Northumberland.

Sharing second spot, Sussex Welsh and Jemma with Before Gas & TV and Border Reiver, so just the three on the podium this week.

Some good songs there and I may have to think about adding to my Knopfler collection at some time in the future, maybe, if I remember.

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments Ohhh no?! - I did it again?!! ;o<

So sorry, Val, I even checked this Thread out earlier on today but thought that I still had another day in which to vote. I don't know why but I've been absolutely hopeless at remembering what day it is for over a week now?

I'm going to have to get my Calendar up on the Wall where I can see it and start with crossing days off until I get far more with it again. My Mind is all over the place at the moment!

message 31: by theDuke (new)

theDuke | 5671 comments Crikey Jeeves..i won a thing! :)

Thanks to everyone who voted for mine. Ragpicker's Dream is not a bad album, if folks wish to check it out.


message 32: by suzysunshine7 (new)

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments SHHH! - don't tell everyone that you won 'a thing' ... !

They will all be wanting one now and yours was the only thing we have ;o>
