Pink Floyd-Wish You Were Here 12″ Vinyl
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.
