First 4 tracks are the live disk

You have a lot of vinyl?  I have heard a few good setups and wish I had a turntable but it just would cost me too much money

Definitely appreciate the album more these days after that listen. I used to have a lot of vinyl (well about 80 albums) from my earlier days, but I gave most of it away. I did keep all my Pink Floyd though. These days I would only have about 12 albums and a few singles. I have occasionally thought about buying an old turntable, just never got around to it.

It is mostly down with acoustic instruments with a few exceptions where he uses an electric guitar, so he does Shine On first half solo with a acoustic guitar up to the point the sax comes in.  His bass player plays a stand up Bass and he uses a cello player which works wonderful, especially on Comfortable Numb.  While I was always partial to Water's themes and writing, this convinced me just how important Gilmour as the musical soul of the band.
