This musical excursion from acclaimed singer-songwriter-guitarist Mark Knopfler, Shangri-La is perhaps his most accomplished album since his halcyon days in Dire Straits.

Knopfler offers an idyllic earthly refuge for the sophisticated Rock fan with Shangri-La. It features his signature storytelling style of songwriting. It was released on HDCD and in 5.1 Surround Sound on SACD and DVD-Audio.
