Format: Audio CD
"David Gilmour" was the first solo album by a Pink Floyd band member that quite clearly and powerfully revealed what that individual's contribution to the band actually was. Waters had his "The Body" much earlier but it was really a side-project that didn't quite give one much insight into what his input into the band really was. "David Gilmour" is just that, a revelation.

Back when it first came out it was striking, that revelation, and you realized that a HUGE part of what was known and loved as Pink Floyd came from it's main vocalist and guitarist. This was Gilmour's very first step on the road to his massive success, both artistically and commercially, that eventually reached it's full flower with his "Live in Gdansk" Release.

It was a long haul over a few decades and this first effort did little to burnish Gilmour's name into the public consciousness. It took his battle to retain the Pink Floyd name after Waters' departure and the success of post-Waters Floyd to finally achieve that name recognition.

All that as history now, a listen to this album is still, 30 years later, a revelation. It's all there, everything the taciturn genius is capable of - great melodic development, rich, tasteful, distinctive guitar work, impeccable arrangements and ... that voice, that silky, honey toned voice that's capable of growling with grit as well.

Right from the start, "David Gilmour" has got you hooked and it stays that way right until the last massive chords of "I Can't Breathe Anymore" fade out at the end of it all. As good as Gilmour has become, and the man is an undisputed master, this album still contains some of his best work.

Pink Floyd guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour released his self-titled solo debut in June of 1978. The album was recorded during down time in Pink Floyd's history. While David was making his solo album, bass player/vocalist Roger Waters created demos for The Wall and Pros and Cons while drummer Nick Mason was producing The Damned and Steve Hillage and keyboardist Rick Wright was making a solo album of his own Wet Dream. David's album was recorded in late 1977/early 1978 in Superbear Studios in France with David producing and handling guitars, vocals and keyboards. Also joining him were Roxy Music/future Foreigner bassist Rick Wills and Quiver drummer Willie Wilson, whom both had played with David in the power trio Bullet in 1967. This album kicks off with the great instrumental Mihalis which is a great guitar workout for Dave. The next song is There's No Way Out Of Here which is a laid back classic delivered with the minimum of fuss and overdubbing; Gilmour's voice rarely rising above a breath. This track was originally recorded by the band Unicorn as No Way Out of Here and this song was the single off the album doing well on rock radio in the US in 1978. Cry From the Street is a great number with some great playing. So Far Away is a nice ballad which has Dave singing calmly throughout. Short and Sweet kicks off the second half and was co-written by Dave with Roy Harper and is a great song. Raise My Rent is the second instrumental with more fretwork from Dave on the Fender Strat and the riff was inadvertently resurrected in 1994 on Pink Floyd's The Division Bell on What Do You Want From Me. The bluesy No Way follows and has a great Dave vocal and superb lap steel guitar work. It's Deafinitely follows and has superb guitar work from Dave.Read more ›
