Two CD set includes DVD and booklet. David Gilmour Live in the Gdansk Shipyard with the Baltic Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra. This is the first solo live album from Pink Floyd's singer / guitarist, and it captures the magic of his concert held in front of 50,000 people as the final performance of his critically acclaimed 2006 `On An Island Tour.' It features the first ever recording of selected Pink Floyd classics performed with an orchestra. Produced by David Gilmour and Phil Manzanera. It is the first ever live recording with an orchestra of Pink Floyd's `High Hopes' and `A Great Day For Freedom,' the latter performed here as a one off for this special Solidarity anniversary. Playing at this historic concert is Richard Wright - Pink Floyd's keyboard player, Phil Manzanera, Roxy Music guitarist & coproducer of 'On An Island', Guy Pratt -bass player with Pink Floyd & Roxy Music Jon Carin -keyboards & longtime player with Pink Floyd, Steve Di Stanislao - drums, recently with Crosby and Nash, Dick Parry -saxophone and longtime Pink Floyd collaborator.

That aside, this is one really impressive live album, the kind you wish had been made for some of Pink Floyd's greatest tours. ( '73, '75 & '77 specifically ) The sound is sharp and clear, with a very wide range of highs and lows. But what else would you expect from a Pink Floyd alumnus? Floyd's tours were always amazing for their sheer size and spectacle, the breathtaking lights, screen projections, fireworks and effects but also largely because of a quality of sound that no one has been able to equal since. With their massive quad sound system they could turn the largest stadium into a behemoth set of headphones, often achieving a production sound that even surpassed their immactulately recorded albums.
"Live in Gdansk" seems to follow in the tradition royally.
While the set list is almost the same as heard at the Albert Hall for "Remember That Night", there are some really lovely and jaw-dropping re-workings of certain numbers and a few new treats that make "Gdansk" a MUST for the devoted. The addition of the Baltic Philharmonic Symphony on stage both fleshes out and uplifts Gilmour's newest work as well as spicing up some of the Floyd faves as well.
David Crosby and Graham Nash are NOT in attendance at this event and it takes a while to get used to their absence at certain points. But the band's vocalists, which is everyone save for Dick Parry, do a beautiful job of it regardless.Read more ›
What to say about David, about the show? You always get what you expect, even more. This is no exception. Definitely one of the best concerts I have ever seen in my life, and I've seen a lot.
A must for everyone who loves Pink Floyd and David Gilmour.
