Title - 'Live In Gdansk (2 CD/2 DVD) [LIVE] '
Artist - David Gilmour

Recorded during the final date of Gilmour's 2006 "On An Island" tour, it's as meaty a package as you'd expect from a prog-rock colossus. There's the concert's monumental backdrop of the Polish shipyards where the trade union Solidarity was founded in 1980. There's a crackerjack band that includes the late Pink Floyd keyboard player Richard Wright, and Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera. And there's a 40-piece string section from the Baltic Philharmonic Symphony to enhance Gilmour's blend of classic rock, jazz and blues influences.

The discs include a fan-friendly mix of solo material, much of it from the "On An Island" album, and venerable Floyd songs: "High Hopes," "Comfortably Numb," "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" and the 25-minute "Echoes," which Gilmour said was "the highlight of the show." Also featured on the first bonus DVD highlights from the concert as well as a documentary on Poland's Solidarity Movement. The second DVD contains 11 bonus tracks (previously unreleased) including Barn Jams sessions and a 5.1 Surround Sound mix from "On An Island."
