Celtic Sea is the final track from The Sailor’s Revenge (2013), which was produced by Mark Knopfler, and I have very fond memories of being with Bap in Mark’s British Grove Studio in London while it was being recorded.
It was fascinating to watch the two of them working so closely together, both so intensely absorbed and enjoying doing the thing they loved most. Celtic Sea was Mark’s favourite song from the album, and you can hear his distinctive guitar and backing vocals on it.
Upon its release, The Sailor’s Revenge received widespread critical acclaim internationally. No Depression described it as "truly a masterpiece from a man who is finally comfortable in his place in the world - The Celtic Blood On The Tracks”
Quite an accolade!
