He played keyboards with the Floyd (in studio and on tour) from 1986 to 1994.

The rototom intro is edited (4 themes instead of 8) and doesn't have the background keyboards.
The central part with bass solo is edited (2 themes instead of 4).
The last chorus is repeated and the fade out happens during the second one (on the

This LP version is different from the CD version, with a slight change in the lyrics: the
first lines of the second verse ("I murmured a vow ... when I think aloud") were added to
the first verse, and the rest of the second verse ("Extinguished by the light ... with an
empty smile") was left out, so that the LP version has a longer first verse, and no second
verse between "This bleeding heart's not beating much" and "I'm creeping back to life...".

At the very end of "The Division Bell" album, there's a phone conversation between Steve
O'Rourke (Floyd's manager) and Charlie (Polly Samson's son; Polly married David Gilmour in 1994).
This conversation was probably incidentally recorded by the answering machine at Gilmour's house.

Primary source : "Take it Back" Australian promo single, released 1994
Source for the tree : "Take it Back" Australian promo CD
This is an "answers only" interview, where David Gilmour is supposed to answer 8 different questions.
The questions are available on a separate sheet provided with the
promo CD:
Question 1: Where was your new album, The Division Bell, recorded ?
Question 2: How was the recording of this album different from the previous Pink Floyd album ?
Question 3: How did you arrive at the title The Division Bell ?
Question 4: Do you enjoy putting on such enormous concert events ?
Question 5: Let's talk about the songs on the album.
On "What Do You Want From Me" the music was written by you and Richard and the lyrics were
written by you and Polly Samson.
Could you tell us how this wame about ?
Question 6: There's an incredible instrumental on the album.
Could you explain how you
came up with the music and the title to "Marooned" ?
Question 7: How did you come up with "Wearing The Inside Out".
I see that Dick Parry plays saxophone on this song ?
Question 8: "Keep Talking" is an amazing song.
It's being played on the radio almost constantly.
Are you happy with the response that song is getting ?

5 - Soundscape (uncredited) 22:07
Recorded : 1994
Primary source : "P*U*L*S*E" cassette, released 1995
Source for the tree : "P*U*L*S*E" cassette
This track consists of various ambient noises and is probably an extract of the (longer)
tape that was played before the Floyd shows during the Division Bell Tour.
Somewhere in the middle, an extract from "Cluster One" can be heard.
It is not available on "P*U*L*S*E" CD and LP releases.

guitar solo (at 01:42 on "P*U*L*S*E" CD), and there's a short edit during the last
guitar/voice duo, after the last verse (the segment 04:29-04:43 on the "P*U*L*S*E" CD
version was cut).

Recorded : live, London, Earls Court, October 13, 1994
Primary source : "Coming Back to Life" US promo single, released 1995
Source for the tree : "Coming Back to Life" US promo CD
This is an edit of the "P*U*L*S*E" version: the instrumental guitar intro is missing (the
song begins with the first lines "Where were you ..."), and it ends just after the last verse
(skipping the final guitar solo).
