Dave G drew on his strengths - geetar, vocals, and rallied his friends round and encouraged their best for the album.

One of the best solo efforts made by someone still in the mothership band, I feel.


agreeed.

Not being afraid to state the obvious, his guitar tone is gorgeous.


I think he is very astute in his choice/feel of tones generally - wonder how much is instinctive - really knows how to create different moods.

Short and Sweet - written with Roy Harper, who recorded his own version on a later album.

I like this version much better.

You ask what is the quality of life?
Seeking to justify the part you play
And hide, fearing it incomplete, to try
To make it any more or less than short and sweet
But short, short is from you to me, as close
As we are wont to try to make it be
We're caught watching the dark in the sky, who knows?
Helpless as time itself to hold the time of day
And you, you are a fantasy, a view
From where you'd like to think the world should see
Be true and you will likely find a few
Building a vision new and justice to our time
And we, we, the immoral men, we dare
Naked and fearless in the elements
And free, carefree of tempting fate, aware
And holding off the moral nightmare at the gates
And sweet, sweet as a mountain stream, we'll look
Toward a new day breaking in the east
We'll meet as every future dream unfolds
And surely quality it is at very least
At very least

I've just noticed this

David Gilmour was re-released by EMI Records in Europe as a digitally remastered CD on 14 August 2006. Legacy Recordings/Columbia Records released the remastered CD in the US and Canada on 12 September 2006. It features expanded versions of some of the tracks.

Some tracks are almost a minute longer than my/our original vinyl

Just over two minutes longer in total
