The Mark Knopfler Bonus Tracks (Updated)
Actualizado: 17 nov 2022
With the two MK boxes called the Studio Albums out in the market it´s time to update this useful list.
The latest MK albums came out in a few different editions and formats and this implies a few tracks exclusive to some of them. In the past, we had the always nice CD singles to give space to the B-sides, so usually the tracks that did not pass the artist (or label) cut to make into the album where placed on those CDs. With different artwork, cardboard sleeve or slim jewel case they are highly collectible items, even without new music on them. Speaking about MK, with thse two boxes containing all his studio albums, we have all these tracks across a couple of bonus CDs. Only one track has been omitted: Hot Dog
But during Dire Straits days, B-sides were not released as much as we would like to. Very few non album tracks were released on singles, EPs and CD singles. But when Knopfler went solo a lot of stuff appeared as B-sides on CD singles up to 2004, and from the Get Lucky album onwards, everything “extra” appeared on the Deluxe Editions Sets and box sets. Unluckily, with the Dire Straits studio box released on 2020, which covered their six studio albums, no CD with B-sides, outtakes or any bonus track was included.
