Forty years ago, the progressive rock band, Kansas, released its breakthrough album, Leftoverture, which featured the band's first hit "Carry On Wayward Son." The album went on to multi-platinum status, selling over 5 million copies in the U.S., while the single was certified gold. Leftoverture propelled the heartland band to the top ranks of American bands producing original music in the fertile 1970s.
Remember that Night directed by David Mallet was filmed over three nights, May 29, 30 and 31, 2006 at London's beautiful Royal Albert Hall during Gilmour's short tour promoting his latest project On An Island. Featuring songs from this latest project, and some Pink Floyd hits as well, Gilmour delivers an exciting performance that delights and mesmerizes the engaged audience throughout the concert. Gilmour also brought several guest stars onstage in the form of David Crosby, Graham Nash, and David Bowie who I almost did not recognize. David is backed by the same group of musicians that joined him on his last tour, except for Nick Mason. Also joining Gilmour is British jazz musician Robert Wyatt who plays a beautiful rendition of "Then I Close My Eyes".
