David Gilmour – Live At Pompeii

I vividly recall experiencing the Pink Floyd concert documentary, “Pink Floyd:Live At Pompeii” in the early 70’s. It was a feast for the eyes and senses which I found transfixing.

45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows in July 2016. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheater, 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-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances.

Amazon Original – Long Strange Trip, Act V: Dead Heads

It’s the 1980s, and the Dead’s fans seek adventure in this “New Lame America” as Garcia calls it.

I especially liked the segment where Senator Al Franken highlighting his favorite live edition of “Althea”, recorded at the Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY, 5/16/1980 and included on the Rhino release of the Long Strange Trip Soundtrack.
