Mixed for 5.1 from Original Multi-Track Master Tapes by Pink Floyd Engineer James Guthrie
An Essential Counterpart to Dark Side of the Moon–The Biggest-Selling SACD in History
Shine on You Crazy Diamond: Reflective Landmark Ranked #209 on Rolling Stone List of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time
You Will Never Hear a More Immersive, Realistic Digital Version
This one requires no introduction. But it’s deserving of constant celebration. The legendary English psychedelic rock band’s 1975 masterpiece, Wish You Were Here remains a staple of poignant emotion, pioneering arrangements, clever wit, and timeless performance. Forever an audiophile and music staple, the blockbuster is finally available on an incredible-sounding digital version, courtesy of this Hybrid 5.1 SACD.
Mixed for 5.1 from Original Multi-Track Master Tapes by Pink Floyd Engineer James Guthrie, Wish You Were Herereveals countless new layers of information, detail, and dynamics. We’ll stake our reputation on it: You will never hear a better digital edition, and for that matter, whether you opt to listen in stereo or surround, you’ll never be closer to the music.The stereo version is transferred from the original analog master tapes.
Anchored by the longing title track, heartfelt tribute to founder Syd Barrett “Shine on You Crazy Diamond,” and nervy takedown of music-business hypocrisy “Have a Cigar,” the follow-up to Dark Side is equally great and just as iconic. As much as any multiplatinum album in history, Wish You Were Here employs cutting-edge studio effects and unimaginable atmospheric techniques to paint an impossibly broad canvas.
On this SACD, the enormous soundscapes, introspective echoes, and brazen guitar washes take on a life of their own. Airy, complete with full frequency extension and unparalleled realism, the disc drops Pink Floyd into your listening room. This is reach-out-and-touch-it quality, the kind of perspective and experience for which all audiophiles crave.
DO NOT MISS THIS LANDMARK DISC! Anyone who has a high-end system needs to hear it.
