“Follow Me Home” was released on the Dire Straits’ sophomore album, Communiqué, in the summer of 1979. This is my favorite Dire Straits album and the second I’ve done for a track from it (the first being one of my very first videos, (and somehow still by far my most popular one)….”Once Upon A Time In The West”….the vid is too clunky for me to bear now, but the song is as classic and timeless as ever…gotta get around to a reboot on that vid someday!) This song has always been another favorite from the album, I just really love the smooth tropical-like groove that the band finds and stays in for the track….Knopfler’s guitar is as stylishly stunning as always, and Pick Withers’s restrained style, favoring spare snare drum and hi-hat combinations sound are perfect for the track. 236 more words
