David Gilmour 84

dg1984podMost of this is from the “David Gilmour In Concert” video that was recorded and broadcast by MTV and released onto VHS in 1984 (now out of print).  All three nights at Hammersmith Odeon, London, were filmed.  This is the last night, 30. April, 1984 with special guests Roy Harper and Nick Mason.  Some tracks had to be sourced elsewhere to make this a complete concert.  I explain in the podcast.  Here’s the playlist.  Hope you enjoy!  Please consider a small donation, if you do.  Thank you.

Ravingandrooling

bd225The title, “Ravingandrooling” is typed that way on purpose. I explain in the podcast but in short, this episode is dedicated to my friend Jeff Post.  For this is a two-fer.  First, Roger Waters at Newport Folk Festival and second, something very special.  Enjoy!  Its a long podcast.

By the way, you can still enjoy the first half.but I warn listeners to stop if they don’ want to spoil the surprise with the second half.  I’ll post the playlist later on.  Again, I don’t want to spoil any surprises. In the meantime, you can find the playlist embedded within the file of the podcast.

Plan B

bd199sitePlan B in full effect.  Since the Roger Waters matrix is taking forever, I figured in the meantime I’d do a full 180 and serve up a little something from the end of David’s On An Island Tour.  I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time and this is the perfect opportunity.  I give you the complete “Live From Abbey Road” session, 29. August, 2006 with a few extras.  Here’s the playlist.  Enjoy, and if you do please donate.

Two Birds, One Stone

Show #135 Release date: 13. June, 2009

This podcast features not one but two very cool gigs.  The first by request, is David performing at the Mermaid Theatre in 2006.  The other half of the podcast is a unique recording mostly used for the live portion of Ummagumma. The mix is different from what we hear on the official release so this should be a real treat for you Ummagumma fans.   A big thanks to the folks at Yellow Cow Records for bringing this into the light.

Die Sonne Scheint

Show #78 Release date: 19. February, 2007

Sorry for the delay.  I’m up to speed now and thank you for all the “get well” wishes.  This podcast is long overdue.  David Gilmour’s About Face Tour was a brief one much like On An Island but the energy is totally different.  The band is tight and everyone sounds like they are having a great time.  The podcast is broken into two main segments and I explain why during the show.  Enjoy!

On Manhattan Island

Show #55, Release date: 14. April, 2006

David Gilmour opened his North American On An Island tour at New York City’s world famous Radio City Music Hall ten days ago.  The concert was absolutely mesmerizing.
I was fairly close to the band, nine rows back.  It was GREAT, however while people up front had the better view, anyone towards the back of the venue had the better sound.  This recording was done by Dan Lynch from the rear, left side of the venue.  In less than 24 hours after the show, he had the concert available on various trading groups on the Internet.
I raise my beer glass to you Dan.

The sound is excellent!  I did however run it through a cool device to bring it out more.  So if you have a good sound system or headphones… just close your eyes and you are there.

David was amazing and Rick was incredible.   It sucked that Nick wasn’t there and Roger for that matter, but I kept thinking, “This is at least half of Pink Floyd, or 2/3 of post-Waters Floyd.”  Not bad considering it’s the closest thing you’ll get.
