Wish You Were Here

LP (Item 568983) Columbia, 1975 — Condition: Very Good
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔
A seminal set from 70s Pink Floyd – a set that took all the energy of Dark Side Of The Moon, and refined it into an even more complex sonic setting! The songs here move out spaciously – still very unified as an overall album, but often with all of these longer-form musical ideas, and mature textural elements that really show the progression the group had made in just a few short years – almost as if they were revisiting the open-ended feel of their immediate records after the departure of Syd Barrett – but with a massive amount of new information about the possibilities of the recording studio, and their own skills as musicians. The whole thing's wonderful – always taken better as a whole than in just small slices – and titles include "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", "Welcome To The Machine", "Have A Cigar", and "Wish You Were Here".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and light staining along the bottom.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

A Scratch In The Sky
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint-
A great step forward for The Cryan Shames – a group who started their career singing other peoples' music, but who emerge here with some great songs of their own!

The first Chicago album – presented here in all its jazzy brilliance!

This Years Model
Columbia, 1978. Near Mint-

River
Columbia, 1980. Near Mint- 2LP
Prime classic Springsteen double album, circa 1980! The River finds Bruce a few years removed from the massive breakthrough that was Born To Run, and seemingly starting to let go of the darker tone of Darkness On The Edge Of Town, though still with some shadows of it. Definitely a creative high ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Simon
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+
The first-ever solo album from Paul Simon – and a set that really showed the world he had a heck of a lot to offer on his own!

Bookends

Somethin' Right
Emerald/P-Vine (Japan), 1982. Sealed
A lost AOR gem from a very unique singer – one with roots in the spiritual scene, but an ability to present crossover lyrics with a great little groove – in a way that makes for plenty of cool, catchy tunes that should have been huge! Instrumentation is lean, and very well-done – ... LP, Vinyl record album
