Description

Offered for sale is an original U.S. SQ quadraphonic pressing of Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd, including the postcard and a different mix from the stereo release.

About this copy: This copy of Wish You Were Here is a 1976 U.S. pressing on the Columbia label.

The cover is VG, with slight edge wear, moderate ring wear, and a small stain or two.  There is a sticker in the upper right hand corner of the cover that says “QUADRAPHONIC This SQ Quadraphonic disc is fully compatible and may be played on conventional stereo equipment.”

The custom inner sleeve is M-.  The postcard is VG, with a few wrinkles, but no tears or writing.

The disc is VG+, with some scuffing from the heavy posterboard inner sleeve, but no other marks.  It’s a clean disc that has had little play.

A nice copy of a surprisingly rare Pink Floyd LP, as this album was released shortly before quadraphonic LPs were discontinued.

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.

Wish You Were Here was one of three Pink Floyd albums to be remixed for quadraphonic in the mid-1970s, along with The Dark Side of the Moon and Atom Heart Mother.  This was the only album of the three to be released in LP format in the United States; Atom Heart Mother and The Dark Side of the Moon were released in quad only as 8 track tape cartridges.
Allmusic.com gave Wish You Were Here a 5 star review:

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.
