364 – Dire Straits – Telegraph Road (1982)
Written by Mark Knopfler
Produced by Mark Knopler
Label – Vertigo

Most music fans would probably balk at the thought of a 14+ minute album track loosely cataloguing man’s quest to travel, discover, build, and industrialize, ultimately leading to over population, degeneration and decay. “Telegraph Road” takes a musically majestic journey, quietly building as the story gathers pace with elegant piano interludes and carefully projected guitars, ending in an epic crescendo that not only highlights Mark Knopfler’s inspirational musicianship but also his powerful storytelling abilities.
