Offered for sale is a limited edition blue vinyl pressing of Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd, released in the Netherlands.
About this copy: This copy of Wish You Were Here is a Dutch blue vinyl pressing, released in 1978 on the Harvest label.
This edition did not include a custom inner sleeve or a postcard.
The cover is VG++, with a couple of minor creases and a neatly repaired 1 1/4″ (3 cm) split at the top edge.
The vinyl is VG++ with a couple of faint scuffs from the original paper inner sleeve. The record has been well cared for and has clearly been played only a couple of times.
A beautiful copy of a rare Pink Floyd LP that rarely turns up in this condition, as most copies have major cover wear.
Background: Released in 1975, Wish You Were Here was the ninth studio album by Pink Floyd, and it reached #1 on the charts in both the UK and the U.S.
The LP was released on blue vinyl in 1978 in both the Netherlands and Germany as part of a large number of limited edition colored vinyl pressings that came out worldwide that year.
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. And while it’s short on actual songs, the long, winding soundscapes are constantly enthralling.
