The Story Of





The Pink Floyd catalog, back on vinyl, 180-gram pressing

Mastered by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab

Pink Floyd Records — along with Sony Music and Warner Music Group —is reintroducing the band's classic catalog on vinyl, with release dates at regular intervals. Special care has been taken to replicate the original packaging.

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" was written as tribute to founding bandmate Syd Barrett and his mental breakdown.  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 band's magnum opus.

Clearer than the EMI version

I bought The Wall in both the EMI label and the Pink Floyd label. You can read the review on elsewhere on Acoustic Sounds. I mention that because I believe the quality of the Pink Floyd label is simply better than their EMI counterparts.

Immediately upon playing the Pink Floyd label version, I noticed the sound was sharper than the recent EMI remaster. It's as if they took the EMI version and buffed it to a shiny luster. Somewhere, I gave the EMI version a 5 star rating, but it needs to be changed to 4 stars, because the Pink Floyd label is now the 5 star album.

I directly compared both versions of "Have a Guitar". In the Pink Floyd version, you can more hear more symbol decay. On the guitar that starts "Wish You Were Here", you can clearly hear fingers sliding up/down the strings, while I could not on the EMI version. I could go on, but I think you get the idea.

This label has now produced two albums of equal quality. I will now order the rest.
