Simple Awe-Struck by this DVD Concert
on October 30, 2007
There is a scene in the movie "Contact" where Jodie Foster is staring out the window of an alien space craft. Below her she sees the unspeakable beauty of the Universe and says "There are no words... they should have sent a poet". That is the very feeling I had watching and listening to this DVD concert. This concert is music for the soul, and music that stirs the memories of those of us who saw Pink Floyd, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, and David Bowie in live concerts. For those who did not see the live concerts, this is as close as you will ever get. I'm sure that you will treasure this DVD if you buy it.
David Gilmour, now 61 years young, remains in a class with few, if any equals. There are Rock Artists, Rock Stars, Rock Legends, and then there is David Gilmour. It is hard to imagine that his performances just keep getting better as the years roll by. David has a keen sense of putting together a terrific group of artists to perform Pink Floyd music. His choices on this DVD concert could not have been better (well - with one exception. I really did miss Nick Mason on drums). If you enjoyed the group that Roger Waters put together on his "In The Flesh - Live" DVD, you will find the musicans on "Remember That Night" equal or better.
The special appearances of Graham Nash, David Crosby, and David Bowie is a memorable treat. But, lets be honest here, it's all about the Pink Floyd sound, and it has never been better than on this DVD. My one wish is that the next Pink Floyd DVD concert is a reunion of David, Roger, Rick, and Nick performing once again as the REAL Pink Floyd. I'm sure that it would be the greatest Rock concert of all times from an unknown group that started as "Tea Set" over 43 years ago. Who'd a thunk it?
P.S. God Bless the memory of Sid Barrett. Shine on....
