Album · 1983 · 14 Songs. After the international success of Dire Straits’ Love Over Gold, bandleader Mark Knopfler took a sabbatical to compose music for Bill Forstyth’s 1983 film Local Hero. Beyond adding atmospheric color to this beguiling tale of a small Scottish town, the score stands on its own as an evocative, subtly-textured showcase for the guitarist’s composing gifts.

Dire Straits leader Mark Knopfler's intricate, introspective finger-picked guitar stylings make a perfect musical complement to the wistful tone of Bill Forsyth's comedy film, Local Hero. This album was billed as a Knopfler solo album rather than an original soundtrack album, with the notation "music. Knopfler brings along Dire Straits associates Alan Clark (keyboards) and John Illsley (bass), plus session aces like saxophonist Mike Brecker, vibes player Mike Mainieri, and drummers Steve Jordan and Terry Williams.
