Wish You Were Here [Experience Edition]

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. [The double-CD Deluxe Edition contains a newly remastered version of the proper album and a second disc featuring three live cuts from a November 1974 show at Wembley (the six-part "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" plus the unreleased songs "Raving and Drooling" and "You've Got to Be Crazy"), a cut from the abandoned Household Objects album called "Wine Glasses," and previously unreleased alternate versions of "Have a Cigar" and "Wish You Were Here," the latter featuring Stéphane Grappelli.]
