5 stars AWESOME

Well worth every penny spent and essential to any collection and before I go any further this is worthy of the full 5 stars

With a line up to drool over, and a track list to go into raptures over, it cannot fail, and it doesn't.

David Gilmour, now into his sixties, sets the bench mark so high that those in his wake will have great difficulty in attaining what is achieved here. The whole of ON AN ISLAND is played in the first half of the set, with the title track sounding just good as a PF track, CROSBY and NASH provide excellent harmonies. (DAVID GILMOUR can get CROSBY and NASH as backing vocalists???!!!, ROBERT WYATT guesting as cornet player!!!) RICHARD WRIGHT takes on his keyboard duties with superlative ease and adds so much to the first set.

The second part comprising of Floyd material is extrordinary! The audience are treated to a sublime experience and will forever REMEMBER THAT NIGHT.

High Hopes, Echoes, Arnold Layne with DAVID BOWIE, Comfortably Numb....

The only thing that niggles at the back of your mind is where is NICK MASON, why not additional PF material, I'm obviously being greedy, but what if...

REMEMBER THAT NIGHT deservedly gets the full 5 stars, but the second disk also lives up to expectations, full of interest and obvious enjoyment from all those who partook in the venture. This disk is worthy of at least 4 stars on its own.

Go and get it, you will not be disappointed.

huge | 5/5 |
