Sounds from Pompeii

World Cafe recently featured an interview with Pink Floyd guitarist, David Gilmour. It features David answering some interesting questions about the original 1971 "Live at Pompeii" recording/film, as well as his thoughts on his "guitar sound." It is a quick and rather satisfying interview. The interview is timed, such that it is, to support Gilmour's forthcoming album and film "David Gilmour Live at Pompeii." NPR/World Cafe explains the release:

The concert film includes footage from two concerts Gilmour played in the ancient Roman amphitheater in Pompeii in July 2016 — the same place where Pink Floyd recorded a concert film in 1971. The film of Gilmour's 2016 performances will be shown in movie theaters across the country for one night only on Sept. 13, and the concerts will also be available on CD, Blu-ray and DVD on Sept. 29.

For folks who follow Alloy, and live in the greater Carlisle PA area, there is a showing of the movie on the 13th of September (next week!) at the local Regal Cinema. For anyone outside this immediate area, checkout this URL to find a screening near you.

There are a number of different ways to purchase the CD (music) and the DVD (movie) from the recorded Pompeii event. Feel free to look at some of the nifty options, here.
