This, the first solo work by the Pink Floyd guitarist, did not fare as well as the later, and more commercial offering "About Face", but is arguably better in terms of guitar work, singing (I always preferred his soulful style to the more nasal and harsh Roger Waters) and sheer musicianship. OK, it has an unoriginal title, and the cover photo is very naff, but please don't be put off- this is Gilmour at his finest.
It is clear that by 1978, when this album was released, Gilmour must have been becoming increasingly frustrated by Roger Waters' insidious taking over of Pink Floyd and lack of any new Floyd material (Waters was just starting to write 1979's monumental yet self-obsessive masterwork "The Wall") so that we have here an outbursting of creative talent which Gilmour had been unable to express within the confines of the band (with "Dogs" an honourable exception on the previous years "Animals" album). What is outstanding about his first album is the sheer breadth of styles covered, from melodic instrumentals, to blues, ballads and out-and-out rockers, and we see here the beginnings of the style which came to characterise post-Waters Pink Floyd (see "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" and "The Division Bell"). Stand-out cuts include the opening instrumental "Mihalis", the excellent "There's no way out of here" (a reference to being increasingly stifled within Pink Floyd?) and best of all "Cry From the Street".
Dave's continued friendship with the folk-rock genius Roy Harper is seen in the track "Short and Sweet" which was penned by Harper and later reappeared on his album "The Unknown Soldier". Harper remains the only non-member of Pink Floyd to sing on a Pink Floyd album ("Have a Cigar" on the magnificent 1975 masterpiece "Wish You were Here").

Format: Audio CD
When this was first released I have to admit that I was disappointed and quite disliked it. I also thought that "About Face" and "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" fell well below the standards you would expect from David Gilmour. However, revisiting this 20 odd years on, I now cannot understand why I didn't like it. It's a little on the bluesy side of rock and relatively under produced - that may have been why I didn't like it - but now I think this really is a very good release and of course the remastering gives it a sonic quality way above that of my old vinyl copy. The overall sound and feel of this is not too far remmoved from "On An Island" For some reason I still don't like "About Face" though!

[6]...This is David Gilmour's first solo album. Released in May 1978, some 15 months after the release of Pink Floyd's 'Animals'......It's David Gilmour taking a Holiday from Pink Floyd & calling up a couple of his old mates for a 'Jokers Wild' reunion....

...The Blues band 'Jokers Wild' included Bassist Rick Willis & Drummer Willie Wilson who both joined the Blues Band 'Jokers Wild' in 1966, with David Gilmour on Guitars & vocals & Dick Parry on Saxophone...They broke up in 1968....

Joining David on this, mostly Blues Guitar based oriented rock album was two of his old friends from 'Jokers Wild', Drummer Willie Wilson who was also friends of Syd Barrett, & over the years he has in some way been involved on many of Pink Floyd's projects....& Rick Willis who has been bass Guitarist for bands such as, Peter Frampton, Roxy Music, Small Faces, Foreigner for 14 years & Bad Company......

In 1978 David Gilmour said this' This album was important to me in terms of self respect'...'Being in a group for so long can be a bit claustrophobic, & I needed to step out from behind Pink Floyd's shadow......

...Most of this album contains some great guitar & vocal work from David Gilmour....Musically very good...

Format: Audio CD
Whilst Roger Waters was still reeling from the angst and aggression of the Animals tour - as well as preparing for that legendary rock monster the Wall - David Gilmour packed up some selected friends and family members and booked himself into a quiet French studio to tinker around with some things. The result of that tinkering would be one of the most pleasant creations any Floyd member could ever create. The fact that this hardly gets a mention these days is a sad fact, with music critics to busy proclaiming whiny twenty-something bands like Franz Ferdinand and the Libertines to be the epitome of musical genius - didn’t they learn their lesson from crap like the Music... (where are they now?) - as opposed to giving up any column inches to rediscovering little gems like this.
Here, Gilmour has none of the pretensions of his wayward band mate Waters, who’s eventual solo records would carry on the concept, high production benchmark set on records like Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, instead his goal is to ape the sound of the blues guitarists he so admirers... So there’s bits of Muddy Waters, bits of John Lee Hooker, Junior Wells, even some early 70’s Eric Clapton, though it’s all tied together by the trademark Gilmour idiosyncrasies that we all know and love. There are echoes (no pun!) of the Pink Floyd sound, particularly the combined guitar/harmonica harmonium from Animals that reappears a number of times here, whilst listening to Gilmour’s gruff, rock-star vocals, can’t help but bring to mind classic Floyd moments like Fat Old Sun, Time and Shine On You Crazy Diamond.
