Wish You Were Here is the ninth studio album by the English rock band Pink Floyd, released on 12 September 1975 through Harvest Records and Columbia Records, their first release for the latter. Based on material Pink Floyd composed while performing in Europe, Wish You Were Here was recorded over numerous sessions throughout 1975, at Abbey Road Studios in London.
Wish You Were Here was released in September 1975 as the follow up to Dark Side Of The Moon - a pretty hard act to follow, but in many respects this amazing new album outshone its illustrious predecessor. Shine On You Crazy Diamond with its majestic introduction is arguably the finest recording in the entire Pink Floyd career. On this flawless album every track pulls its weight and the title track Wish You Were Here which was revived for Live 8 has gone on to achieve classic status.
Pink Floyd followed the commercial breakthrough of Dark Side of the Moon with Wish You Were Here, a loose concept album about and dedicated to their founding member Syd Barrett. The record unfolds gradually, as the jazzy textures of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" reveal its melodic motif, and in its leisurely pace, the album shows itself to be a warmer record than its predecessor. Musically, it's arguably even more impressive, showcasing the group's interplay and David Gilmour's solos in particular.

Are Pink Floyd Really Here? One major creative difficulty the band had to face after Dark Side was whether to follow their smash success up with another concept album, the favored approach of Rogers Waters or, instead, to create a less confined collection of songs, which David Gilmour preferred. 3. Be Here Now. One of the remarkable things about Wish You Were Here is that it consists of only four songs: the sprawling Shine On You Crazy Diamond, the eerie Welcome to the Machine, the ironic and biting Wish You Were Here, and the poignant acoustic title track. As epic in scope as anything ever created in rock music, the song shimmers over a bed of dreamy Rick Wright keyboards landscapes, caustic blues guitar riffing from Gilmour, and the emotive harmonizing of the band and two backing vocalists, Carlena Williams and Vanetta Fields.
