Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) Discography – ‘Shangri-La’ [VIDEOS]

Mark’s fourth solo album ‘Shangri-La’ didn’t get into gear until roughly after seven months in recovery and rehabilitation from a motorcycle wreck in 2003.

After his wreck he was left with a broken shoulder, collar bone and ribs which actually was the inspiration of one of the songs on the album, “Don’t Crash The Ambulance.”

The remaining songs played tribute to some very interesting people like the boxer Sonny Liston, Elvis Presley and Lonnie Donegan (singer from Scotland).

The album charted at #11 in the U.K. and at #66 in the U.S.

  1. “5:15 A.M.”
