When it was released in 1975 Wish You Were here topped the album charts in both the UK and the US. Reflecting the band's thoughts of the time on the music business, and exploring themes of absence, Wish You Were Here contains the classic cut Shine On You Crazy Diamond, an epic tribute to founder member Syd Barrett.

Pink Floyd featuring Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Nick Mason first broke onto the music scene in 1967, with the hit single ‘Arnold Layne’. Despite the departure of Syd Barrett, the group, which now included David Gilmour, recorded some of the most innovative and ground breaking records of the time, culminating in 1973 with one of the biggest selling albums of all time, ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’. There followed numerous global number 1 albums, including, ‘The Wall’, ‘Animals’, ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘The Final Cut’ and 2014’s finale, ‘The Endless River’.

 

Pink Floyd Records releases will be manufactured and distributed by Warner Music for the UK and Europe and by Sony Music for North America and the rest of the world.



"Pink Floyd followed the commercial breakthrough of Dark Side of the Moon with Wish You Were Here, a loose concept album about and dedicated to their founding member Syd Barrett. The record unfolds gradually, as the jazzy textures of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" reveal its melodic motif, and in its leisurely pace, the album shows itself to be a warmer record than its predecessor. Musically, it's arguably even more impressive, showcasing the group's interplay and David Gilmour's solos in particular. And while it's short on actual songs, the long, winding soundscapes are constantly enthralling." - Thomas Erlewine, All Music


Shine on you, crazy diamond. Indeed, Pink Floyd's 1975 masterwork Wish You Were Here continues to resonate with a sparkling luminance and poignant emotionalism more than three decades after its original release. Teeming with stunning dynamics, an immense front-to-back soundstage, newly uncovered details, balanced transients, and tube-amplifier warmth, this dead-quiet LP will have you truly hearing this all-time classic with fresh ears. Just wait until you hear the atmospheric surroundings on the title track. It's just one example of this pressing's magnificence.


Every song on the record has attained iconic status. The suite "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" stands as a tribute to founding group member Syd Barrett. The title track remains a heart-stopping hymn to loneliness, absence, and love. "Welcome to the Machine" riffs on the future and isolation. And "Have a Cigar" registers as one of the most caustic, humorous indictments of the music industry ever made.


All of the music is performed with a delicate perfectionism and enviable tranquility. Guitarist David Gilmour taps into a bluesy aesthetic and fireplace warmth on the slower material, and vocally, channels a melancholic spirit and somber stateliness that reflect the record's conflicting themes.
