live from abbey road dvd Many of you were knocked out with David Gilmour's fine performance on Channel 4 TV's "Live From Abbey Road", a recording of him and his touring band in the legendary London studios, when it first aired in the UK back in March 2007, and later across the world.

The twelve part series covered a diverse selection of artists, from legends to newcomers, and proved a fascinating insight into the abilities of the performers.

For those that missed it, the good news is that a 2-disc DVD is released in the UK next Monday (October 15th) with highlights from the show, and we have more details of this for you...

The show took the artists into the hallowed studios, and with the only audience being the TV cameras and technicians, they recorded 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 2-disc DVD brings together some of the best performances from the whole series, along with some additional goodies.

Disc one features: John Mayer; Corinne Bailey Rae; Dr John; Craig David; Damien Rice; LeAnn Rimes; Josh Groban; Natasha Bedingfield ; Wynton Marsalis; Nerina Pallot; Jamiroquai; Ray LaMontagne; Gipsy Kings; and Norah Jones.

Disc two features: David Gilmour; Richard Ashcroft; Massive Attack; The Good, The Bad And The Queen; The Kooks; Gnarls Barkley; The Goo-Goo Dolls; Iron Maiden; Kasabian; Primal Scream; The Zutons; Dave Mathews; and Amos Lee.

dg live from abbey road David's manager confirmed to us late last night that "On An Island" is the track that kicks off the second disc.

As befitting this release, there is an array of special features such as extended interviews (much of which is previously unseen and exclusive to this release), a look behind the scenes, picture galleries and more. With the audio presented in full 5.1 surround sound, this looks to be an excellent "Best Of" the first series of the show. We should have additional details of this release shortly, and will add them to this news story once we have them.
