David Gilmour is the debut solo studio album by Pink Floyd guitarist and co-lead vocalist David David Gilmour - David Gilmour . The album was produced by Gilmour, and consists mostly of bluesguitar oriented rock songs except for the piano-dominated ballad "So Far Away".
Session musicians included bass guitarist Rick Wills and drummer Willie Wilsonboth of whom used to be part of Jokers Wild with Gilmour. Among those depicted on the inner sleeve is Gilmour's then-wife, Ginger. One unused tune he wrote and demoed at the time would evolve, via collaboration with Roger Watersinto Pink Floyd's Magija / Zveri U Nama - Opus - Opus 1 Comfortably Numb " from The Wall.
However, a song included on this album, the piano ballad "So Far Away", uses a chorus progression not unlike the chorus to "Comfortably Numb", albeit in a different key. Likewise, the song "Short and Sweet" can be seen as a musical precursor to " Run Like Hell " also from The Wallwith its shifting chords over a D pedal pointusing a flanged guitar in Drop D tuning. A five-song promotional film was made to promote the album.
It was recorded live at The RoxyLondon. Also, Gilmour promoted the album with his first ever interviews with North American media and FM rock radio stations. The promotion paid off as the album made a respectable showing on the Billboard album charts peaking at number 29, which - until 's On an Island - was Gilmour's highest charting solo album in the US, eventually going Gold.
