Eagle Vision to release Pink Floyd - 'The Story Of Wish You Were Here'

06th of April 2012, 09:45

Eagle Rock Entertainment are proud to announce the simultaneous release on 25 June 2012 of Pink Floyd “The Story Of Wish You Were Here” on DVD and Blu-ray [Cat. No. EREDV932 and ERBRD5152 respectively]. This is the authorised story of the album made with the full involvement and approval of the members of Pink Floyd.

“Wish You Were Here”, released in September 1975, was the follow up album to the globally successful “The Dark Side Of The Moon” and is cited by many fans, as well as band members Richard Wright and David Gilmour, as their favourite Pink Floyd album. On release it went straight to Number One in both the UK and the US and topped the charts in many other countries around the world. This programme tells the story of the making of this landmark release through new interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason and archive interviews with the late Richard Wright. Also featured are sleeve designer Storm Thorgerson, guest vocalist Roy Harper, front cover “burning man” Ronnie Rondell and others involved in the creation of the album. In addition, original recording engineer Brian Humphries revisits the master tapes at Abbey Road Studios to illustrate aspects of the songs’ construction.

The band members discuss the album’s themes of absence, the greed of the music business and former band member Syd Barrett, who is famously celebrated in “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”, which both opens and closes the album. The programme also covers the unexpected visit Barrett paid to Abbey Road during the recording, the difficulties of the early recording sessions and how the decision to split “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” into two sections was the catalyst for the album’s successful completion.

The DVD and Blu-ray releases contain additional bonus material not featured in the TV broadcast version, including further interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason plus Roger Waters and David Gilmour performing excerpts from the “Wish You Were Here” album.

“The Story Of Wish You Were Here” is a fascinating document and fitting tribute to Pink Floyd’s outstanding achievement in the creation of this masterpiece.
