"Knopfler's sueded voice has changed little since his 1980s heyday, and his elegant electric guitar work sounds better than ever."
- Rolling Stone

"... this is a warm, authentic and durable record: the musical equivalent of a well-worn plaid shirt."
- The Telegraph

"... a showcase of Americana, as innately authentic as anything produced by any artist born on US soil. Somewhere, Chet Atkins, Johnny Cash, John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters are all picking, grinning, and haw-haw-hawing their collective approval."
- Sound & Vision

Privateering is Mark Knopfler's first studio double album in a 35 year recording career. This 2012 collection of consummately crafted folk, blues, country and rock originals displays lyrical and musical detail of the highest order. Privateering is not a concept album, it is not a song cycle, it is simply one of our finest and most distinctive musical talents doing what he does best.

"I have always thought in terms of the transatlantic nature of music. My idea of heaven is somewhere where the Mississippi Delta meets the Tyne. What I wanted from the very first album with Dire Straits was to write my own geography into the American music that shaped me, to identify the English, Irish and Scottish landmarks on Chuck Berry's road. I think what I'm doing now is both synthesizing those influences and separating them."
- Mark Knopfler

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
