More Info:This much anticipated symphonic reworking of Pink Floyds iconic 1975 #1 album WISH YOU WERE HERE marks the 40th anniversary of the original album release. For the first time ever, WISH YOU WERE HERE is issued in spectacular symphonic sound, newly recorded at Abbey Road Studios where Pink Floyd recorded the original Wish You Were Here.
The diverse and stellar line-up on the album features Rock icon Alice Cooper (vocals), Dave Fowler & Stephen McElroy of the Australian Pink Floyd Show (guitars), the legendary Rick Wakeman (keyboards) and the London Orion Orchestra with Peter Scholes, conductor & arranger.
WISH YOU WERE HERE is the second Pink Floyd album to use a conceptual theme written entirely by Roger Waters.
The song Wish You Were Here written as tribute to founding bandmate Syd Barrett and his mental breakdown is sung here by Alice Cooper, who toured with Pink Floyd whilst Syd was still in the band in the late 60s.
Bandmembers David Gilmour and Richard Wright have both cited WISH YOU WERE HERE as their favorite Pink Floyd album, and the album is widely regarded as the bands magnum opus.
A must have for every Pink Floyd fan and classical music enthusiast alike.
