The Last Ship is the 11th album from Sting and his first to feature all-original material since 2003's Sacred Love. Born out of a musical that Sting had been penning -- based around the decline of the shipbuilding industry in the North of England in the 1980s -- the album includes songs that will feature in the show as well as other material to complement them.

PLEASE Release the PBS Special on DVD!!!

Comments about PBS Sting The Last Ship [2 CD][Deluxe Edition] CD:

I was recently gifted the deluxe cd set by my husband, and I'm happy to own it. The songs are exquisite, and perfectly capture the hardiness and hard knocks of the men whose blood, sweat and tears built the magnificent ships of yesteryear.

But I am STILL longing to relive the experience of watching Sting and his ensemble LIVE this deeply personal story again. The Wilson Family's backing vocals added salt, swells, and plaintive harmonies to many of the songs, and their solo outing "Big Steamers" is a tour de force that I miss terribly. As noted by other reviewers, the lovely "What Say You, Meg" is also missing; a criminal omission in my book.

PLEASE release the PBS performance on DVD. The play itself may have failed to find an audience (a pity, as I'd hoped to see it), but this special, intimate evening with Sting reliving his childhood thorough song was as wild and beautiful as the characters he immortalized.

To the rough and randy welders, apprentice painters, young men hoping to escape their fathers' fates working in the shadow of torches and steel, wounded women unable to trust again, and lonely men and vicars hoping to find love again before facing their own mortality -- I tip my hat to them all. PLEASE make it possible for more people to experience this incredible performance on DVD; it deserves a better fate than to fade into obscurity.

Comments about PBS Sting The Last Ship [2 CD][Deluxe Edition] CD:

As the other reviewers, I too would love to purchase the Great Performances presentation of Sting and his band performing The Last Ship. Am presently streaming it via Roku, but would love to have this as a DVD! It is nothing short of pure brilliance! And it also includes What Say You, Meg?
Please notify me/us when and if it does become available on DVD via PBS.
Thank you!

Loved the music and story

Comments about PBS Sting The Last Ship [2 CD][Deluxe Edition] CD:

I would also love to be able to purchase the DVD of the show that premiered on PBS in which Sting told the story behind his wonderful creation. I was so disappointed when it closed on Broadway and was looking forward to seeing it. I also agree with the other reviewer who noted parallels with what has happened to American manufacturing and the offshoring of jobs -- all with a love story entwined. Jo Lawry is absolutely stunning. My only gripe is that she was not on the single CD I ordered nor was the beautiful, ballad, "What Say You Meg." Impossible not to sing along with "What Do We Got?" Personally, I thought this was a masterpiece by Sting.

Comments about PBS Sting The Last Ship [2 CD][Deluxe Edition] CD:

Even with a couple of offensive lines in the songs, this is a wonderful story being told by Sting. I would love to be able to purchase the PBS video that I watched recently - wondering if that is going to be for sale.
Sting is very talented!
