PINK FLOYD

Remastered re-release of the ninth full-length studio album by legendary British Progressive Rock band.
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 band's interplay and David Gilmour's solos in particular. And while it's short on actual songs, the long, winding soundscapes are constantly enthralling.
It was Pink Floyd's first album with Columbia Records, an affiliate of CBS; the band and their manager Steve O'Rourke had been dissatisfied with the efforts of EMI's US label Capitol Records. The band remained with EMI's Harvest Records in Europe.
"Have a Cigar" was chosen by Columbia as first single, with "Welcome to the Machine" on the B-side in the US.
In UK, with 250 000 advance sales, the album debuted at number three and reached number one the following week. Demand was such that EMI informed retailers that only 50 per cent of their orders would be fulfilled. With 900 000 advance orders (the largest for any Columbia release) it reached number one on the US Billboard chart in its second week. "Wish You Were Here" was Pink Floyd's fastest-selling album ever.
The album was certified Silver and Gold (60,000 and 100,000 sales respectively) in the UK on 1 August 1975, and Gold in the US on 17 September 1975. It was certified six times Platinum on 16 May 1997, and by 2004 had sold an estimated 13 million copies worldwide.  The album was a commercial hit in Europe, topping Dutch, English and Spanish charts – in Spain, the album remained at number one for 20 weeks.
Since then, the record has sold over 20 million copies.
CD concealed in black shrink-wrap (making the front cover art "absent"). On the front of the shrink-wrap is a George Hardie designed sticker depicting two mechanical hands engaged in a handshake.
