Notes: Pink Floyd's David Gilmour performs his first solo gig in London for over a decade. His lead guitar and vocals have created a whole world of sound - expansive, engrossing, seductive. In his solo work and 30 years with the earth-force that is Pink Floyd, Gilmour has inspired our contemporary best.

Technical Details: This source was recorded from Level 4 Terrace, Seat F17 (a few rows behind the mixing desk, and slightly stage left).

This recording has never departed the digital domain. Exact lineage is as follows:
Sony ECM-717 (stereo electret condenser mic) > Sony MZ-R30 (automatic leveling) > SONY MDSJB940 > optical link > PHILIPS CDR785 > CDR > EAC > CEPro > CDR.

Free Range Pigs would like to thank the following people for their contributions to this effort:

Andy Saitel for graciously providing the source
Zoltan Toth for providing Project Management and Quality Assurance services
Mark Gunzinger for providing Transfer and Quality Assurance services
Doug Collins for providing Quality Assurance services
Kevin Jowers for providing Artwork services
Scott DeShields for providing Distribution services and coordination

Without these guys, none of this would have been possible.

We'd also like to thank Bob Cooney, Guy St. John, Luca Benporath, Zoltan Kozak, and Mike McInnis.

We'd be remiss not to include Zeedox for his encouragement during the process, and for entertaining the troops while we waited for the finished product :)
