10/05/2006 Entry: "David Gilmour On An Island - Expanded Edition"

Columbia Records has announced a special expanded edition of David Gilmour's On An Island. The album was originally released earlier this year, on March 6th (David's birthday). Hitting the shelves on November 21st (US/Canada; other regions dates to be confirmed), the expanded deluxe edition features a bonus DVD of live performances, alongside the CD of the album itself. The DVD, only available in this edition, features the Pink Floyd guitarist's April 2006 AOL Sessions in New York, in six mesmerizing tracks: "On An Island," "This Heaven," "Smile," "Take A Breath," "High Hopes," and "Comfortably Numb." The DVD also premieres a rare new take (Abbey Road Session August 2006) on Syd Barrett's "Astronomy Domine" (from Pink Floyd's 1967 debut album, "The Piper At The Gates of Dawn.") On its original release, On An Island (the first CarbonNeutral® CD to be released by Columbia Records), debuted at #1 in UK and #1 on European Billboard Charts. The album also debuted #6 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 best-selling albums chart giving the artist his first American Top 10 honours outside his work with Pink Floyd.
