Live From Abbey Road blu-ray Next month sees the US release on the high def Blu-ray format, and standard DVD format, of Channel 4's highly regarded Live From Abbey Road: The Best Of Season 1. Hitting stores on November 11th, the 2-disc release, with a 220 minute running time, brings together some of the best performances from the whole series, along with some additional material, including extended interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and photo galleries.

The show takes artists into the hallowed London studios, and with the only audience being the TV cameras and technicians, they record a selection of songs later broadcast in the twelve hour-long episodes. Augmented with interviews, the shows cut through the normal visual effects and studio trickery to showcase the music itself.

The highlight for us is David Gilmour, Richard Wright, and the rest of David's band, on disc 2. Details aren't forthcoming yet as to what's on the package, but the original UK DVD included David's On An Island track.

The suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $26.98, but Amazon.com have knocked 26% off at time of writing - order the Live From Abbey Road Blu-ray here, or if you want the DVD, here.
