Thought I'd Wrap Up This Current Chet Obsession

with a fun tune he recorded with Mark Knopfler of Dire Straights off of an album he made with Mark called Neck and Neck. Chet on his album - Almost Alone - wrote a song called A Little Mark Music which is dedicated to Mark.

They toss jabs at each other while Chet laments how he could have made tons more money playing in a rock band.

Chet, in his later recordings brought players he admired who wanted to record with him like Mark and George Benson and a few others, into his recording studio at home and cut some nice albums. Chet recorded most of his stuff at home in his studio in the morning from stories I've heard. There sure is a lot of great stuff that's not on youtube. Too bad.



  1. Thanks looong time for the Chet fix! Now I'm needs to go out and torpedo something!

    Great Reader KIM Jong IL

  2. Trestin, glad you liked it. Agreed.

  3. Gene, May your torpedo find just the right target.

  4. Admiral, glad you enjoyed as well.

  5. Hi Kid, what fun, Dire Straights & Chet!
    Thanks for the relaxing break.

    I hope you and the family (PS: How's Wilbur progressing)? have a nice relaxing
    Memorial Day, God Bless.

  6. Hi Bunni, blessings to you too.

    Webster's about the same actually. His physical therapist said he wasn't doing as well as he had been on his last visit...

  7. Kid, you can't be in a bad mood while listening to Chet.

  8. Opus, that's a great way to put it.
