Listen to Pink Floyd Later Years Highlights… almost for free! Plus, Box set Contents

Pink Floyd Later Years 1987-2019 box set cover art

The massive Pink Floyd Later Years 1987-2019 box set has an incredible amount of goodies including 5CDs, 6 Blu-Ray discs, 5 DVDs, Exclusive 7″ singles, deluxe 60 page photo book, 3 tour programmes and lyrics book and a treasure trove of memorabilia! However, it is on the expensive side so this may stop many fans from being able to buy it. It may be a viable Christmas present (if you celebrate that in your part of the world). Ask very nice indeed!

Luckily, there will also be other formats available including the Highlights CD which has the 12 tracks on. It also comes as a double LP which looks great (4 sides on 2 LPs). Both these formats have a really nice booklet included for you to enjoy as you listen to Pink Floyd in a new remixed light. The remixed versions from this release shared so far sound absolutely excellent and the production on them is incredible – the 1980s embellishments have been toned down to pop the songs into the “timeless classics” bucket like the rest of the back catalogue.

In addition to the CD/LP formats, it will be on Amazon Music so there is the opportunity to experience the highlights for free or a small fee! You won’t get the lovely booklet though, or the beautiful lossless joy of the LP!

In 2015 David Gilmour set out to play a series of concerts in historic venues across the world. The following year he became the first performer to play the amphitheatre in Pompeii in front of a live audience since the gladiators in 79AD. It was a return to Pompeii for David, having first performed there in 1971 for Adrian Maben’s legendary concert film, Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii. In Roman times the Pompeii amphitheatre was known as a “Spectaculum” and David worked with long time collaborator and maestro of colour and light Marc Brickman to bring the spectacle back to the Spectaculum”

45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’.

The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.

‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio experience on its own, while the audio-visual spectacle features lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs. Paramount, however, is the incredible music: the show includes songs from throughout David’s career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics, including ‘One Of These Days’, the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show.

Both concerts also saw very special performances of ‘The Great Gig In The Sky’ from ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ which David rarely plays as a solo artist. DVD and Blu-ray versions contain an extra 7-minute documentary by Gavin Elder ‘Pompeii Then And Now’

‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ shows an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting on one very special occasion.
