strat pack The Miller Strat Pack concert, on 24th September 2004, featured David Gilmour alongside a whole host of top musicians at the London Wembley Arena. The concert - shot in high definition by former Hipgnosis partner, Aubrey "Po" Powell - was edited and mixed into full surround sound in David Gilmour's home studio, the Astoria houseboat, by David himself and Andy Jackson. The concert alone raised £175,000 (around US$330,000) for charity, and this was swelled with the release of the DVD (reviewed here).

The good news is that the stunning show - which also featured other legendary guitarists such as Phil Manzanera, Joe Walsh, Albert Lee and Brian May - is being released in the UK on a region-free Blu-ray disc on November 17th! Already a great DVD, the high-definition Blu-ray version should be even better, with material that had to be cut to fit onto the original DVD being added as bonus features.

These include additional tracks by Amy Winehouse and The Shadows, previously unseen rehearsal footage of Hank Marvin and David Gilmour, previously unseen interviews with Amy Winehouse and David Gilmour, along with more Strat Pack interviews and behind the scenes footage. are already offering it as a pre-order for despatch upon release, at a rather tempting 25% off normal retail price...
