A new album from Mark is just around the corner. After three years since Tracker was published we are impatiently waiting to listen what MK will offer to the fans (We already have two songs!).
Like it happened with his latests albums, it comes 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.
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.
