Wish You Were Here

LP (Item 568983) Columbia, 1975 — Condition: Very Good
Just Sold Out!

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".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Laura Nyro

First Songs
Columbia, 1966/1973. Very Good+
Laura Nyro's first album ever – originally issued by Verve/Forecast in the mid 60s, but brought back out on the market by Columbia, during the height of Nyro's early 70s fame for the label! Even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female ... LP, Vinyl record album

Compton & Batteau

In California
Columbia, 1970. Very Good+
An overlooked gem from the duo of John Compton and Robin Batteau – beautiful songs recorded with a mix of rootsy elements and these especially nice spare acoustic modes – all put together by producer Abner Spector, who's quite far from his Vee Jay Records roots! LP, Vinyl record album

Bruce Johnston

Going Public
Columbia, 1977. Near Mint-
A strange lost relic from Beach Boy Bruce Johnston – recorded in the mid 70s with some sweet AOR production work by Gary Usher. The album's actually a fantastic slice of late 60s sunny LA pop – and features work by Curt Boettcher, Chad Stuart, and a few other lost pop luminaries – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
A slightly different sound than previously from The Flock – a set that brings in some sweet Hammond organ to the group's mix of jazzy horns and freewheeling guitar and violin – all in a way that even makes the whole thing better than before! The organ is never too jamming, but used at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chad & Jeremy

Of Cabbages & Kings
Columbia, 1967. Very Good
A dream of a record from Chad & Jeremy – a fantastic bit of psychedelic pop produced by Gary Usher! The album's got quite a different feel than the rest of the duo's work – as their standard Brit pop style is augmented by lots of extra strings and woodwinds, super-baroque in a ...

Frost

Frost Music
Vanguard, 1969. Very Good+
A pretty electric set of late 60s hard rock tracks – nothing fancy, but pretty nice! The group's heavy on the guitars, and sings in a style that's got some slightly soulful touches – but not too much. Titles include "First Day Of May", "Baby Once You Got It", " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band

Clear Spot
Reprise, 1972. Very Good+
Maybe not as nuts as some earlier work by Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band – but a pretty damn great record nonetheless – especially when compared to most of what was hitting the record racks in 1972! The Captain's still got all his wild and unbridled elements fully in place ... LP, Vinyl record album

Partridge Family

Partridge Family Album
Bell, Early 70s. Very Good+
Surprisingly sublime pop from The Partridge Family – served up with superb arrangements from Wes Farrell and Mike Melvoin, the latter of whom plays some really great keyboards on the set! In fact, all the instrumentation is pretty great – guitar from Dennis Budimir and Tommy Tedesco, ... LP, Vinyl record album
