When I saw David during this tour at Radio City Echoes was without a doubt the highlight of the evening. Peeled the roof off the place with that one, he did.

Gilmour did one of the classiest things I've ever seen on the new DVD - at the end of disk 2, in the credits, he lists every crew person and shows their picture with their names - all the way to the truck drivers!

BTW - what a great DVD! Sound and production values on par with the finest anywhere. It's supposed to come out in hi-def soon as well. I hope that version is be mastered in one of the new DolbyTrue HD or new DTS sound formats. I hear those sound amazing...

Last night, and tonight on VH1CR, they are airing David Gilmour live from the Royal Albert Hall. Great stuff!! David Crosby and Graham Nash are David's back-up singers.

I've never heard any of David's solo work, is it any good? I figure the last 2 or 3 Floyd albums would sound like his solo stuff since he is the only singer on them. I don't really care for the albums without Waters.

Well, his live performances take the excessive studio additives from his solo work. BUt I guess it goes without saying that most music is better live!

Hi Clay ... I watched that on TV over here in the UK a couple of weeks ago and it is an extract from the above mentioned DVD. The DVD has the complete show (which I was priveleged to attend last year) and some extra footage / interviews from the tour - you have to get it as you will love it !!!

I have seen Floyd more times than any other group since my first experience back in 1968 just after Gilmour joined them. It is all a matter of personal taste, but my favourite albums are Dark Side / Wish You Were Here and I actually prefer the albums since Rogers depature over the last couple of albums they made with him ... I did not like "Final Cut" at all. I think the main difference now is that if you go to see a Dave Gilmour concert you get to hear Floyd tunes just as they always were whereas when you go to see Roger it sounds like Floyd but something is obviously missing. Still like them all though and would love to see one final re-united tour

I disagree with you there. I seen Roger's "In The Flesh Tour" live and I also seen Floyd's "Pulse Tour" and musically I enjoyed Roger's show more. If you didn't see the tour check out the dvd. The debate could go on forever just like Lennon or McCartney. I do agree on the PF reunion that would be great! Oh yeah, I perfer Lennon. Lol

Love both Gilmore and Waters. Saw Gilmore with 'Pink Floyd' on the Pulse tour and was absolutely amazed. Have seen Roger a few times and been equally amazed each time. This last tour, his reproduction of Dark Side of the Moon was spot on. Wat I'd REALLY like would be to see them all together again but it doesn't appear that will happen (but I won't stop hoping! )

Missed out on Dave's tour since he played small venues but did catch Roger last summer and loved it. My first concert ever was Pink Floyd on The Wall tour and it's still my favorite show of all time.
This thread reminded me that I had taped the VH1 special so I watched it last night. Very interesting scene at the beginning where it turns out both Dave and Roger are rehearsing at the same studio. Sadly, when they meet in the parking lot it looks awkward and forced. Not a good sign for everyone that hopes for a reunion tour someday. At the end Dave states that he is enjoying the then current tour more than any other because he is doing it on his terms and doesn't have to take direction from anyone.
As I'm typing this Breathe just came on the radio. Man I wish these two guys could patch up their differences

Great DVD. Saw him at Radio City last year and it was great. Be sure to check out the hidden accustic echoes (it is after Dark Globe on disk 2 but you must select dark globe from the track listing and after it is over the play a partial echoes, accustic). But that is the show that inspired me to (in my 30's) start playing the Organ/keyboards

I like all three Gilmour solo albums. I enjoy them better than the post Waters Floyd albums. No expectations that way and some great music.

The only Waters solo effort that I really enjoyed was Pros and Cons Of Hitchiking. But any albums (and tour) with Clapton is gonna work for me.
