'Live in Gdansk' is a fantastic and gloriously indulgent five disc set for fans of Gilmour and Pink Floyd.

What should have been a celebratory document of what Gilmour described as 'the happiest tour I've ever done' it instead stands as a poigniant but totally fitting tribute to the musical genius of the late Richard Wright.

And what a tribute - this album captures Gilmour and Wright (for what I think must have been one of his very last performances) on absolutely top form.

David's guitar and Rick's keyboards working together is for me something truly magical, they defined the sound of post-Syd Pink Floyd, and it's been captured beautifully on this set.

Gilmour's 'On An Island' album, to me, sounds even better live than the studio version, and their renditions of Pink Floyd classics such as Echoes, Shine On and Fat Old Sun give old songs a wonderful new lease of life.

The sound and picture quality is superb, it's obvious a lot of time and effort has gone into this deluxe package.

The DVD's aren't quite as good as the 'Remember That Night' live at the Albert Hall DVD - still a benchmark on how to produce a live DVD - but this is quibble of atom sized proportions of what still thoroughly deserves to be a five star package.

Album of the year for me.

Format: Audio CD
Without meaning to, "Live In Gdansk", the luxurious live document that captures the final show of David Gilmours 2006 tour, has become an unwitting epitah for Rick Wright.

Like any live release from Gilmour (or his former band Pink Floyd), this document is a magnificent presentation. Depending on your preference, you either get a 150 minute concert, or up to 73 songs and several hours of live material. It is an exhaustive record of the show and its component parts, and captures what was to be the final time that Rick Wright performed almost all of his work : one six song TV session, and two impromptu one-song appearances later, and Rick's public career wascurtailed. Though nobody knew it at the time, this is Rick's farewell. It is poignant, and unexpected to hear and see him performing material through the ages that has become part of the human landscape : the vocal of Time that hears him lament "The time has gone, the song is over, seems there's something more to say" says more than any other tribute.

And whilst songs such as "Comfortably Numb" may sound just like they did before, if they are ever played again, they will never sound the same ever again. Not now. Music isn't about notes being played : it's also about the people playing the notes.

Whilst ostensibly presenting the successful "On An Island" album live (performed for the only time with an orchestra), the set features 50 minutes of solo material, and approximately 100 minutes of material from the Pink Floyd body of work. Unlike Roger Waters recent tour that set the Floyd material in a conceptual and political concept, Gilmours presentation is the successful translation of a rare artistic vision.

Format: Audio CD
This is a truly lavish package. 2 CDs of the entire Gdansk concert. DVD of the concert film (niggle - not the complete concert end-to-end) and documentary. 2nd DVD of additional performances and jams, plus the full 'On An Island' album in 5.1 Surround. And then, just to cap it off - a CD compilation of other notable performances from the rest of 'On An Island' tour.

Various additional bits'n'bobs including postcards, facsimile ticket, backstage pass, poster, guitar pick and a detailed booklet.

Given the quality and breadth of what is given in this package, I have to take my hat off to EMI, Dave Gilmour and co. I am blown away by this release. All that for less than £40. Well worth waiting for.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A sumptuous box 5 discs which covers pretty much the best of the 2006 tour and forming a pretty good tribute to the late Richard Wright. The main feature discs one and two are CDS of the Gdansk concert with the Baltic Philharmonic concert orchestra. Disc one made up mainly of the `On an island album`, disc two David Gilmours greatest hits with probably the definitive live version of Echo's the seminal Pink Floyd classic. Disc three is the fist of two DVD's this is highlights of the Gdansk concert and a rather good documentary the concert highlights stretch to 100 minutes or so. The band was having a lot of fun it would appear. This disc also allows you access to a special download where you can download further tour highlights so far it would appear that these are the songs which appear on disc 5 of this set plus `Wots ..... Uh The Deal`.
Disc four is a further highlights package from the various TV shows that were done while on tour to support the `On an Island' album shows like the Mermaid show recorded for BBC radio 2 and BBC interactive, AOL sessions ,and Live from Abbey Road. Also included are three `Barn jams', one of which highlights why David Gilmour is a better Guitarist than drummer during an Instrument swap. Lastly on this disc is a very good Surround Mix of the `On an Island' album, the 5.1 mix is one of the better surround mixes, the only shame is that its not a full DVDA but only DTS, I suspect this is down to record company politics.
Disc five is a tour highlights disc picking highlight from all across Europe.
The five disc set also contains a number of tour reproduction items Gdansk tickets guitar picks post cards stickers etc.. and an enhanced booklet.
There are other versions of this album depending on your budget but the 5 disc version comes highly recommended.

Its ironic that `Wots ..... Uh The Deal' one of the best songs from the touronly only appears over the end credits of the DVD
