David Gilmour - first two albums get remastered Print E-mail

At long last, the promised reissues of David Gilmour's highly regarded first two solo albums, get their release next month, according to Sony's Music Store site.

Hitting the stores on the same day as Pink Floyd's PULSE DVD - July 10th/11th - the albums have been fully remastered. From the huge number of emails we had during David's recent tour, bemoaning the fact that none of the tracks from these albums were played live, it is obvious that these are going to popular CDs.

ABOUT FACE (1984)
For those of you who haven't heard one/both of these, you are in for a treat. The first album has a bluesy feel, a contrast to David's work on the then recently released Animals album, whilst the second brings a more contemporary feel, a precursor to later period Floyd albums (A Momentary Lapse Of Reason and The Division Bell).

We understand that the packaging is as before, and contrary to very early reports about these titles, there are NO additional tracks.
