Remember that Night directed by David Mallet was filmed over three nights, May 29, 30 and 31, 2006 at London’s beautiful Royal Albert Hall during Gilmour’s short tour promoting his latest project On An Island. Featuring songs from this latest project, and some Pink Floyd hits as well, Gilmour delivers an exciting performance that delights and mesmerizes the engaged audience throughout the concert. Gilmour also brought several guest stars onstage in the form of David Crosby, Graham Nash, and David Bowie who I almost did not recognize. David is backed by the same group of musicians that joined him on his last tour, except for Nick Mason. Also joining Gilmour is British jazz musician Robert Wyatt who plays a beautiful rendition of “Then I Close My Eyes”.

This concert video is a performance package, with every element delivering at a high level. The band is excellent, from Richard Wright’s keyboard playing to Guy Pratt’s bass playing. There is not a week musician in the bunch. Crosby and Nash deliver very sweet delicate harmonies to Gilmour’s vocals on “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”. There is a cool 23 minute rendition of “Echoes” and David Bowie’s made “Arnold Layne” and “Comfortably Numb” his own, as he turned in a fine performance as well. The lighting design by Marc Brickman is exciting, at times eye popping, creative, and completely complimentary of the musical performance. Lasers are also apart of the colorful lighting show, and are not used as gimmicks, but as a complimentary part of the lighting design.

This Blu-ray concert video release is one of the best values released on the format. With a total of five hours of material to scour over – half of that just the concert only, you get two and a half hours of quality bonus features that I found as watchable as the concert itself. There are 13 extra live performances from the tour, three documentaries, and a two promotional music video’s. I watched every bit of it, and enjoyed it all. If you are a fan of Pink Floyd, or David Gilmour himself, you must get this concert video as fast as you can.

45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows in July 2016, part of the year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600-strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.
‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances. The show includes songs from throughout David’s career, solo and with Pink Floyd, including ‘One Of These Days’, the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show, and six songs from ‘Rattle that Lock’, as well as two from 2006’s ‘On An Island’.
Both concerts also saw very special performances of ‘The Great Gig In The Sky’ from ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’, which David rarely plays as a solo artist. ‘Live at Pompeii’, which is now available on 2-CD, Blu-ray, 2-DVD or deluxe Blu-ray box, includes highlights from the concert performances of both shows, filmed in 4K by director Gavin Elder.  ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ shows an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting, on one very special occasion.
‘Live At Pompeii’’s striking cover was art directed by Gavin Elder under the creative directorship of Polly Samson, with a photograph by Anna Wloch and design by Steve Knee of Blade Design. All the versions of the release include photo booklets, including live and venue shots taken by Polly Samson, Sarah Lee and Anna Wloch.

In 2015, David Gilmour decided to undertake a series of concerts in the world’s oldest venues. A year later, the guitarist from Pink Floyd becomes the first artist since the gladiators in 79 AD to give a concert before an audience in Pompeii’s amphitheater! It was a trip back to the Italian city for him, as he had already performed there in 1971 during the shooting of Adrian Maben’s movie Pink Floyd: Live At Pompeii… In the shadow of the Vesuvius, David Gilmour plays in the more than legendary venue on July 7th and 8th, 2016 and revisits songs that have always been there his whole life, in solo as well as with Floyd. And let’s not forget the new interpretations of The Great Gig In The Sky from the album Dark Side Of The Moon, rarely performed in solo by Gilmour.

On An Island is the third David Gilmour album and his first studio recording since Pink Floyd’s 1994 multi-platinum ‘The Division Bell’. From the first moments of the sound collage that begins ‘On An Island’, you know it’s a special experience that not only bears comparison with the best of Pink Floyd, but also confirms their lead guitarist and singer as an outstanding solo artist. Here he reveals a personal vision and a breadth of styles – folk, jazz, orchestral and rock – brought together as a unified piece by his lyrical guitar playing and instantly recognisable voice.

David Gilmour’s Live in Gdansk was recorded and filmed in 2006 at the Polish city’s shipyards, the very same historic location where Lech Walesa’s Solidarity movement began its populist assault on the country’s repressive Soviet-installed regime in 1980. By all accounts of the time it was a truly awesome multimedia spectacle. But there are strange and sad ironies that accompany this release as well. For starters, it was released in the U.K. exactly a week after the death of Richard Wright, Gilmour’s longtime bandmate in Pink Floyd, and his keyboardist here. Secondly, it appears during a period of increased tension between Russia and the United States over the latter’s proposed missile defense system to be placed in Poland (by the U.S.) and the country’s membership in NATO. But there is nothing bittersweet about the music to be found on this double-disc package (one of six different packages that document the event and the tour – apparently nobody told Gilmour the recording industry was in an economic crisis). On this version, two and a half hours document the entire concert. Gilmour’s band – Wright, Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera, keyboardist Jon Carin, bassist Guy Pratt, drummer Steve DiStanislao, and saxophonist Dick Parry – is accompanied by the Baltic Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, including its 40-piece string section, conducted by Zbigniew Preisner (who did the arrangements on Gilmour’s On an Island album).

By the time of David Gilmour’s solo debut, he had not only established himself several times over as an underrated, powerful guitarist in Pink Floyd, but as a remarkably emotional singer, his soothing approach perfectly suited to such songs as “Wish You Were Here.” The self-titled album, recorded with journeyman bassist Rick Wills and Sutherland Brothers drummer Willie Wilson, later to be part of the touring Floyd lineup for its Wall dates, isn’t a deathless collection of music in comparison to Gilmour’s group heights, but is a reasonably pleasant listen nonetheless. Certainly it’s much more approachable than Animals, released earlier that year, eschewing epics for relatively shorter, reflective numbers. While Gilmour wrote the vast majority of the songs himself, the most successful number was co-written with Unicorn member Ken Baker: “There’s No Way Out of Here,” an agreeably dreamy, wistful song featuring an attractive acoustic slide guitar/harmonica hook. That it sounds a bit like a Pink Floyd outtake certainly doesn’t hurt, but one figures Roger Waters would have tried for some heavily barbed lyrics to offset the melancholy. Throughout the album Gilmour sounds like he’s having some jamming fun with his compatriots in his own particular blues-meets-the Home Counties style, adding keyboard overdubs here and there (his efforts are passable, but it’s understandable why he’s known for his guitar work first and foremost). Numbers of note include “Cry From the Street,” with its fully rocked-out conclusion, the sweetly sad “So Far Away,” one of his best vocal showcases, and the concluding “I Can’t Breathe Anymore,” capturing the recurrent Pink Floyd theme of isolation quite well. While one would be hard-pressed to hum a memorable melody outside of “There’s No Way Out of Here,” it’s still a good enough experience for those who enjoy his work.

David Gilmour released his second solo venture in 1984, following the apparent dissolution of Pink Floyd. He had released a record on his own in 1978, but About Face is much more accessible. Gilmour has a stellar band backing him, including Jeff Porcaro (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), and Anne Dudley (synthesizer). The songs on About Face show a pop sensibility that Pink Floyd rarely was concerned with achieving. Although the album didn’t attract the attention of a Floyd release, several cuts did manage to get airplay. “Until We Sleep” is rife with shimmering synthesizers and cavernous drums, and “Blue Light” was a minor pop hit, with Gilmour’s trademark delay-drenched guitar giving way to a driving, horn-laced rocker. Pete Townshend wrote two of the tracks: “Love on the Air” and the propulsive “All Lovers Are Deranged.” Of course, there’s more than enough of Gilmour’s fluid guitar playing to satisfy, including the gorgeous “Murder,” a gentle acoustic track that explodes with some fiery organ by Steve Winwood and concludes with a fierce coda. About Face is well-honed rock album that is riveting from beginning to end.
