The Orb and David Gilmour

Prog and ambient music lovers rejoice: yesterday saw the release of the latest album from The Orb, Metallic Spheres, which features the genius of David Gilmour of Pink Floyd on guitar. Here’s some ‘behind-the-scenes’ footage of the recording process:

Gilmour’s contribution to Metallic Spheres comes forty years after this hour-long Pink Floyd performance for San Francisco public TV Station KQED in 1970 – the man has been making great music for a long, long time.

Yes, I am a Gilmour fan. Amazing guitarist and songwriter.

    Really cool. Glad to see Gilmour still recording. And that hour-long from the 70s? Even cooler! There’s footage I’ve never seen before. Pink Floyd still lives…

    1. Cheers for DG
      Hope to find this for sale soon.

      Trying to download the RAR files is a little like trying to screw a Lincoln Navigator into a small bodily orifice without Vaseline.

      The days of straight up P2P file sharing are clearly long gone. But on the upside, coke dealers in Hollywood are no longer in danger of having to apply for food stamps…

  3. Listening to it now
    This album is great so far. Just made it through the first track, the influence of David Gilmour is most certainly there.

    The fly through sequence in that hour long Pink Floyd performance is astonishing. The 70s era resolution on the video makes it even more succumbing.
