"On Get Lucky, his 15th solo album (counting film scores) and on of his best, the ace guitarist and former Dire Straits head honcho delivers all of these promises and much more - a tuneful allegory of the trials and tribulations of the recession." - Greg Cahill, The Absolute Sound Sound 4.5/5
 
Gatefold double LP features "Border River" and "Cleaning My Gun"
 
The sixth solo studio release from Mark Knopfler. Recorded at Knopfler's award-winning British Grove Studios in West London, Get Lucky was co-produced with longtime collaborators engineer Chuck Ainlay and keyboardist Guy Fletcher and featured Richard Bennett, Danny Cummings, John McCusker, Matt Rollings and Glenn Worf.
 
The 11-track album explores a lifetime of musical roots exemplified by the title track. "The first itinerant person I ever met would sing in soul bands in winter, then work part-time in fairgrounds or 'go pick fruit down south' when the weather turned warm," explains Knopfler. "I was about 15 years old, stuck in school and envious. 'Get Lucky' came from him and other traveling characters I went on to meet in places I'd find myself working short-term, like farms, warehouses, building sites, before I got lucky with my songs."
