You need to go get this one if you are a fan of Pink Floyd and / or David Gilmour. The CD was mastered by Doug Sax and the sound is excellent.

Pink Floyd's David Gilmour is out with his new live CD/DVD set featuring his 2006 concert in Gdansk, Poland. The set, called David Gilmour: Live in Gdansk, highlights the Pink Floyd singer-guitarist's last show during his 2006 On An Island tour.

The gig, which was recorded in front of 50,000 people at the shipyards in Gdansk, Poland, finds Gilmore backed by the Polish Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra featuring a 40-strong string section. He told UPI that he wanted to release it because it was "a great, great show," adding, "It's slightly not representative of all the shows from the tour, but so many of the best (songs) for the album seemed to come from that night, anyway." He added, "So in the end we thought, 'Oh, we'll just do the whole (album) from Gdansk. That's the one we'll do. It'll be great.'"

The album also features one of the last recorded performances of Pink Floyd keyboardist and Gilmour band member Richard Wright, who died earlier this month at age 65.
