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 Floyd fans, as well as band members Richard Wright and David Gilmour, as their favourite Pink Floyd album. On release it went straight to No. 1 in both the U.K. and the U.S. and topped the charts in many other countries around the world. The Story of Wish You Were Here tells the tale 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.
