Offered for sale is a still sealed original U.S. pressing of Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd, with the cover still sealed in the original blue shrink wrap.
About this copy: This copy of Wish You Were Here is an original 1975 issue on the Columbia label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed. The custom inner sleeve and postcard should be inside.
The wrap has some wear to it. There is a hype sticker listing the title of the album, which would otherwise not be visible due to the dark wrap. There’s some adhesive bleeding on the hype sticker.
The wrap is almost completely intact, with a 1″ break at the mouth of the cover and trace breaks at the corners. We’ve secured this with tape to prevent further splitting.
There’s slight wear to the wrap at the corners and along the spine. After 40+ years, all copies that still have the shrink wrap show wear to the blue areas.
A beautiful copy of an album that’s hard to find complete.
Background: Released in 1975, Wish You Were Here was the ninth studio album by Pink Floyd.
The album reached #1 on the charts in the U.S. and the UK.
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.
