Miles between us, here we are
Side by side in a stranded car
Right now, baby right now
And it's too dark to see
Anyhow so where are we
Right now, baby, right now?
You could say we've both come down
To a place called lonesome town.
When'd you loose a hold on me
Anyhow and where are we
Right now, baby right now?

We stood up and said 'I do'
Vowed to see each other through
Right now, baby right now.
I'm looking down this road tonight
And I don't see a light
Right now, baby right now.
If we're so clever tell me how
We're waiting for the wrecker now.
Let's forget what used to be
Anyhow and where are we
Right now,oh baby right now?

You're right, what was I thinking with a silly 7 rating when 9 is much better?  Long Live RP!!
This album is wonderful!
that voice and that guitar sound -- FINE as F
Hey Bill. I only grabbed 2 Dire Straights albums back in the day. I guess Knopler is a favorite of yours. Thank you for great artist I didn't follow.

let's see...I'm 58, so how long have I been madly in love with Emmylou? And because she's beautiful? Well, that is enough for my torrid one-sided love affair...but she has always been the cutting edge of cool...of brave. That's how you steal my heart

 
I have a similar one sided affair going with Alison Krauss.  She has the voice and face of an angel. One of these days she'll return my calls! :)


lots of music documentaries she's been interviewed, in Country she pend it up to a lot more and quite revered
 
love both mark and emmylou but not so much on this song......

Uhhh, no... you haven't told me at all...

At the time my statement wasn't actually exagerated, but i have to admit, lately i've been hearing a lot less of Pink Floyd so that's a good thing, for me at least...

And despite being a Mark Knopfler fan, i can understand people saying they hear a lot of Mark Knopfler here, believe it or not, i could live with less airplay for Mark but then, there's a lot of other crap that could be lost here so.......

 
Joke. Missed.
Y'know, these two are pretty good. If they work hard and stick with it, they could really go places.

To each his own, but regularly i'm hearing some awful stuff here.
 
 
YET...
 
It's still the very best of radio i've heard so it's no problem at all...         
Way down South.
I've heard worse.
I have this CD in my player, and I just listen to it over and over while I'm driving - it's SOO good!  I haven't heard a song on it that I don't like. {#Music}
guitar work = {#Arrowu}

rest of song = {#Sleep}

Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris - Right now, Live (2006)


Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris performing live during their tour 'All the roadrunning'. From the DVD 'Real Live Roadrunning' recorded at Gibson Amphitheatre 2006.


The vocal combination of these two is mesmerizing. I just might have to pick up this record.


When you're ready to settle down, EmmyLou, I am here!

This is such a great album. Other tracks from it on RP get a bashing, but I expect it's because the concept requires some life experience to achieve the desired perspective.

 

Agree!!
One of the best songs from this album.

Her voice reminds me of Christina Amphlett.  Maybe Knopfler's guitar is what pulls the Divinyls sound out - dunno - but, mmmmmmmmmmm!
Wow...Cool. Unexpected.

My thoughts exactly!! It's not like you miss something at first but when the bass kicks in it just adds so much!

9, no doubt!


This song is soooo gooood for the ears...

Love it when the bass kicks in for the first time.  This song has been in heavy rotation in my iPod the past couple of years. 

Me too. This song made it even more worth it. gutboy wrote:

This is the first time hearing this combination of artists ... love them both as individuals and now together.  Emmylou is a Goddess  ... Thanks R&B!

don't think Mark does anything thats not good and Emmylou is sweeeeeeet!!!
Please play some more tracks from this album! "This is us" is a great tune.
Lovely and folky.  Perfect. {#Good-vibes}

Yes, brilliant.



Damn, another dollar donated to iTunes.  {#Good-vibes}
Love this duo, love this entire CD! :dancingbanana_2:
Whenever I hear a song from these two, I always stop and take notice. They compliment each other nicely. :yes:
Methinks Beachcombing is the best cut. :dance:
nice prep Bill
Finally gave in and bought this disc . Good, all the way through. :clap:
Yeah, this is great! Of course, Emmylou could sing the phonebook and still make it sound great to me.

I likey a whole lot

I saw them perform at the Santa Barbara Bowl on their tour. What a show! Knopfler did a version of Romeo and Juliette that was absolutely mind boggling. And the band! Every one of them stellar. And, we got a free CD with the tickets. What a deal.
two of my favorites!
Oh my goodness....such GOOD stuff!

I gave this a 5? What was I thinking!? It's at least an 8.
Happy B-day Emmylou!
Had to up it to a nine right now

Frank Sinatra's Duets can go on to the house and wash up, as they've just received a major dump-upon, as it's shown for the commercial product it is.
I thought that was rather obvious from the beginning.

Exactly. Thank you. I bought this song from iTunes while listening to it for the first time on RP. Was Sinatra's Duets really that bad? I'd never listened to Emmylou much before this--my loss. As for Mark Knopfler: one of my ATF guitarists.
Just caught them recorded for WTTW in Chicago /Soundstage. Good stuff! 8.

Somehow this works really well after Gomez - How We Operate. Kudos, Bill.
Does this slide guitar sound like "Little Red Rooster" by Howlin' Wolf to anyone else?

Yea. I've always kinda heard the stuff from this album played on here as pretty darn good background music to work to. But for some reason this time this one just jumped out and grabbed me, as a Really GREAT song.
Two of my all time favorites come together - wow :)

Hmm. Knopfler is after Harris in the alphabet, as well as the lady should be named first.
I'm guessing it's because he did all of the writing, and she just showed up to sing. That, or she's not a lady.

That's a good song. It's Dire Straits from the Brothers in Arms (1985) album. I would love to hear Knopfler & Harris do that. You are the 2nd person I've read to praise their performance of that particular tune. It's titled "Why Worry."
Put me down as the third. Saw them in Boston, "Why worry" was last song before the three encores. Mark, Emmylou and the band were great! Wish they'd come back to town again.
WOW! Just..."Wow!"

This is not bad, but they sang a killer song at the very end of their recent concert in Santa Barbara with the refrain "Why Worry Now." But it doesn't seem to be on this record, judging from the samples. Maybe it's a cover? Don't know, but...great song.

Why did it take these two so long to get together? Their voices and Marks guitar are awesome together!
It didn't take as long as you think, this album was recorded prior to EH's Red Dirt Girl, but was not released because both of them were releasing other albums at the time. Which explains why it sounds older than the current sound of each of them. While this is better than most other music, I personally like where each of them has gone since then more.
normally i can't stand her voice but with his voice the shrillness is somewhat tempered.
