Editorial Reviews

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 fans, as well as band members Richard Wright and David Gilmour, as their favorite Pink Floyd album. On release it went straight to Number One in both the UK and the US and topped the charts in many other countries around the world. This program tells the story 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. / Bonus Features:
The DVD contains additional bonus material not featured in the TV broadcast version, including further interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason plus Roger Waters and David Gilmour performing excerpts from the Wish You Were Here album.

If you're a Pink Floyd fan you might think you already know all there is to know about `Wish You Were Here'. However, you may be surprised and delighted by this truly superb documentary insight into the origin, creation and final editing of what many (including the surviving band members themselves) feel to be Floyd's most enduring album. The interviews with Gilmour, Waters and Mason are bang up-to-date, archive footage of the late Rick Wright talking about the project is also included as are vignettes from Roy Harper, sleeve designer Storm Thorgerson and stunt man Ronnie Rondell who was set on fire for the album artwork (nb this is before the days of sophisticated CGI and if you needed a convincing image of someone on fire you had to do it for real).

The spectre at the feast is the late Syd Barrett, who passed away in July 2006 just a couple of years before Rick Wright succumbed to cancer and also left us. The original inspiration for Floyd and the early band leader, most fans know Barrett is the subject of both `Shine on...' and the album's title track. A cameo of Barrett's short artistic career is featured in the film. Out-of-the-blue, seven years after leaving the band he turned up in Abbey Road Studio whilst the band was recording SOYCD and at first, no-one recognised him with shaved head and a more rotund physique. The only known photo of Barrett from this period was taken on that day, at Abbey Road Studios. Was Barrett psychic and did he pick up on the project his former band were engaged in? It seems so.

Pink Floyd's The Story of Wish You Were Here DVD and Blu-Ray are a must own for all Pink Floyd fans.
Using the template from the famed British (and also VH1 Classic) TV series called Classic Albums has been around for many years, the company that produces that show (Eagle Rock) unleashed in March of 2012 its documentary on Pink Floyd's 1975 classic Wish You Were Here.
Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here album had a well deserved celebration in 2011/12. First came the Discovery reissue. Then the Experience 2-CD set and Immersion (2-CD/2-DVD/Blu Ray) box set, the long awaited Hybrid SACD issue remixed by James Guthrie and and was re-released on 180 Gram Audiophile vinyl which sounded superb. Then finally, came this DVD documentary which looks at how the album was made.
The three surviving band members being co-founder/singer/bass player/songwriter/lyricist Roger Waters, singer/guitarist/songwriter David Gilmour, co-founder/drummer Nick Mason are featured in new and exclusive interviews in this documentary plus comments from the late co-founder/keyboard player/songwriter/occasional singer Richard Wright from 2001. Roger and David also play songs and demonstrate themes from the album which its theme used the madness of Pink Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett as a symbol for the isolating alienation of the modern world, in particular the greed of the music business. David's superb reenactments of the album's centerpiece tribute to Syd Barrett "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" and Wish You Were Here's title cut and Roger's acoustic versions of "Have a Cigar", a countrified "Wish You Were Here" and "Welcome to the Machine" are stellar.

Essentially borrowing the format of the "Classic Albums" series, Eagle Vision and Kayos Productions has just released the excellent Pink Floyd - The Story of WIsh You Were Here on DVD.

Packed with new interviews of the three surviving Floyds (and some old ones with the departed keyboardist Richard Wright) this outstanding documentary sheds light on the quartets follow up to Dark Side of the Moon.

Dark Side of the Moon is arguably one of the finest classic rock albums ever. Moon was on the Billboard chart for a record 741 consecutive weeks. A true concept album that matches brilliant lyrics with memorable melodies. Packaged with iconic cover-art imagery and innovative recording studio trickery - Moon is a true watershed in rock and roll.

The story of that album is brilliantly captured in one of Classic Albums finest installments (for Dark Side of the Moon). Not only did Moon propel the Floyd from astral-jam band cult-status into mainstream super-stardom but it also set the stage for their eventual break up as Waters began to assert his dictatorial control.

The story of the pressure of following up Moon and power struggles within the band are vividly captured on the new DVD. The dots from David Gilmore's breakthrough four-note opening riff to Roger Waters' decision to make Wish You Were Here a concept album about departed founder Syd Barrett are all connected here.

The biggest challenge with these types of documentaries is that many musicians who were there are bumbling idiots, drug burnouts, or worse of all... dead. They can not remember nor explain the past. To compensate these documentaries bring in talking head ringers who weren't there to flesh out the story. This is very hit or miss.
