  • This Blues boogie is one of several tracks on Privateering to feature the harmonica playing of Kim Wilson of the Blues rockers The Fabulous Thunderbirds. "One of the most important things about the blues to me has always been the harp," said Knopfler. "Seeing Muddy Waters as a kid made a big impression on me, the harp was burbling away all the time, the band was swinging. And to me the greatest modern exponent is Kim Wilson, he's been my top man for many years, so it was really great to have him on board. We hit it off straight away and got a great session going."
