    This is an absolutely amazing version of this song.
    I am almost certain this is what Mark Knopfler had in mind when he wrote this tune.

    That was amazing, and I truly loved it.
    A favorite song, and great pickers all around.

    But, I couldn't help thinking that there was an opportunity lost.
    Two masterfully played acoustics..... but..... there was an electric angle, largely unexplored.
    Resulting in lotsa great Plink but virtually no Twang.
    I'da loved to hear some sustain, scream, twang, grunt and growl, from the stratty-looking guitar.
    Just sayin.
    I love me some bark and bite, weep & moan, that electricity and magnets and all have brought to our fingers...
