David Gilmour releases ‘Live in Gdansk’

There is not one single band in this world that sounds even close to Pink Floyd; what they did together was just unbelievable! Now, they’re still continuing their work more or less separate, but the headlight is definitely pointed at David Gilmour.

Now, he released Live In Gdansk, an album recorded in front of 50,000 people at the shipyards in Gdansk, Poland. Recorded in Gilmour’s 2006 summer tour, it’s the only gig in which he used an orchestra, using the 40-strong string section of the Polish Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Zbigniew Preisner, who was responsible for On An Island album’s orchestral arrangements.

It also features some unique traits, such as the special 6-screen design, created by lightmeister Marc Brickman which makes sure that every band member is properly displayed. Also, an appearance by the prominent Polish pianist Leszek Mozdzer is something really interesting to see.

His last album, On An Island went multi platinum, hitting number 1 in Europe, number 1 in the UK and number 6 in the U.S. It’s just a masterpiece, as is this live release. David Gilmour is known mostly for his work with Pink Floyd, but also for the fact that he has worked as a solo artist with Kate Bush, Paul McCartney and Pete Townshend.

    Dear David Gilmour,
    My name is Bud Olesen, and I am as big a David Gilmour fan as there is alive on this planet. I am a 56 year old American that grew up listening to your brilliant music.
    I know that you probably feel enough is enough, but you, and you alone have the magic too make millions of David Gilmour, and Floyd fans happy as we enter the September of our years. You will never know what it would mean to us to enjoy you and the other members of Floyd on tour back here in the United States.
    I tell my Wife how lucky we were to have grown up listening to the music of our generation (Pink Floyd in particular). I really believe that the variety of music we had will never be duplicated. I am sitting here watching an Eagles concert at 2:30 A.M., dreaming about You, and Floyd. I would pay a $1000.00 a ticket for you to make it a reality, and just do it one more time.
    Personally, in my opinion the brilliance of the band is David Gilmour and not the other Guy.
    I live just outside Kansas City, Missouri. We just opened a new Arena, that I believe would be a perfect venue for a Pink Floyd reunion concert.
    I am sitting here about as melancholy as a man can be. So please Mr. Gilmour think about just one last dance to make millions of us crazy Americans happy.
    I DO NOT KNOW WHO WILL ACTUALLY RECEIVE THIS, BUT PLEASE TRY TO GET IT PASSED ALONG TOO MR. GILMOUR!!!
    Your adoring fan,
    Bud Olesen
