Historic Live At Pompeii Is Coming From David Gilmour

When David Gilmour released Rattle That Lock in 2015, he undertook a long tour to support it. One of the stops, Pompeii (in Italy)had its July 7th and 8th shows recorded for an intended Live release. Eventually, that was realized as a reality with the recent announcements that Live In Pompeii would be made available for fans. And while this is old news as it was announced as early as May of 2017, I find it a nice reminder, as well as a possible surprise for some that didn’t know. (It’s harder and harder to compete with the ample flow of information these days. I was one of few over ten years ago, but am now one of many!) And so:

On September 29, Columbia Records, the long-time home of David Gilmour, will release a 2CD set of Live At Pompeii as well as Blu-ray Edition with the CD and other extras.  The 2CD Deluxe Edition will provide 148 minutes of music on 21 tracks (see list below). It will be housed in a sturdy hardback case, and include a 24-page book with photos  and other things concerning the historic shows.

The album will also be featured in a Boxed edition with a lift-off lid that will supply the 2CD set as well as a Blu-ray disc of the show, and a bonus blu-ray disc with eleven live tracks remixed in high quality Stereo, and 5.1 Surround tracks, all from various shows OTHER than the Pompeii shows (five from South America, and five from Poland (with orchestra). The remaining track is “Comfortably Numb” with Benedict Cumberbatch at the Royal Albert Hall, London. This bonus Blu-ray will include five documentaries totaling approximately 2 hours. The Box will add in a hardbound photobook, a Pompeii Guide leaflet, a 2-side poster, and four cards!

For vinyl fans, Live At Pompeii will see release as a 4LP edition on 180g-weight vinyl. The LPs will provide a download card for the digital versions of the tracks.

There will also be separately available 2DVD sets.

New Pink Floyd Album, The Endless River, Planned For November

Pink Floyd The Endless River TitleUnless you haven’t been paying attention, this late announcement of a new Pink Floyd album is likely old news to you. But that’s ok. Better late than never, especially if you haven’t heard.

As many of you already know, Pink Floyd minus Roger Waters created The Division Bell, releasing it in 1994. As it is with so many albums, there were ideas recorded, although they were not fully fleshed out. And as with many bands, those outtakes simply sit in a “can” until they are resurrected for Special Editions, or ignored altogether as not having been good enough for a full album. This is part of the truth for the new, upcoming album from the established name of Pink Floyd, still without Roger Waters.

A series of instrumentals were recorded by Gilmour, Wright, and Mason Some 20 years after the release of The Division Bell, Gilmour, and Mason has decided that the once planned release of this collection of songs should, after all, be brought to the public in a new album being called The Endless River.

The new album is largely ambient in nature, with much of it being instrumentals. David Gilmour, and Nick Mason have since worked on the songs adding in previously recorded pieces by Richard Wright. (Richard Wright died in 2008.)

On November 10 in the UK, and the US (November 7 in other countries), the respective labels of each country will release The Endless River in a CD/DVD 18-track Deluxe Edition, a CD/BD (Blu-ray) 18-track Deluxe Edition, and an 18-track 2LP Edition, as well as digital versions of the songs. For surround aficionados, the BD-Audio, and the DVD-Audio discs will contain 5.1 surround versions of the same songs!

It should be interesting to hear what Gilmour, Mason, and Wright kept under wraps all of these years.
