★★★★★☆ Though at first an unlike matching, it's obvious from listening that these cats enjoyed the sessions. The duo guitar picking album may have been a trip away for Knopfler this was home field to Atkins. Throughout the 60's and 70's he had done very alike albums with various pickers including Jerry Reed and Les Paul but the 1974 Chet Atkins - Merle Travis album Chet Atkins And Merle Travis - The Atkins-Travis Traveling Show is so close it even suggest that it has been an direct inspiration for the Atkins-Knopler meeting. Same kind of word-battles, blend of vintage jazz tunes and bluegrass - even "I'll See You In My Dreams" is on both albums and sounds very alike. However, Knopler, the cross Atlantic difference and almost two decades adds a tongue in cheek cornyness and humour to this album that makes it the most contemporary and universally listenable of the line
