Pink Floyd’s 1975 album Wish You Were Here followed up the mega-selling Dark Side Of The Moon, a tricky task that the band approached with lengthy instrumentals and some heavily cynical lyrics: excellent. This new reissue has been remastered, and is pressed to 180g vinyl, and comes in a rather fetching package. Released by the band’s own Pink Floyd Records.

For Pink Floyd, making a follow up album to Dark Side of the Moon must have seemed an extremely daunting task. However with Wish You Were Here they succeeded admirably. In his biography of the band, Nick Mason stated that they wanted to avoid simply making a sequel to the hugely successful predecessor and that they wanted to start afresh in a new musical direction. This decision resulted in a creation of true musical beauty. Along with The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon, this was one of the albums that defined Floyd.
