Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here Immersion And Experience Editions

.
(Sub) EMI have set a November 8th release date for the Immersion and Experience editions of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here, following on from the phenomenal success of the Immersion and Experience editions of the The Dark Side Of The Moon, which proved that pigs can fly!

This second phase of EMI's imaginative Pink Floyd re-issues and extended releases, also includes A Foot In The Door - The Best Of Pink Floyd, with new artwork by Storm Thorgerson and the track listing personally chosen by David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Nick Mason.

Wish You Were Here, Pink Floyd's ninth studio album, was recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios, and, when originally released in September 1975, it shot to the top of the charts in both the UK and US. The mood of the album is one of absence, which includes one of the most majestic and poignant songs of all time "Shine On You Crazy Diamond," a track inspired by former bandmate Syd Barrett.

Wish You Were Here Immersion 5-disc edition, includes previously unreleased material from the band's 1974 Wembley dates, including a 20 minute live rendition of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" and "Raving And Drooling" and "You've Got To Be Crazy," two tracks that didn't make it onto the original album and which were subsequently reworked to become "Sheep" and "Dogs" on the "Animals" album . 'Immersion' comes with an exclusive photo book edited by longtime Floyd photographer Jill Furmanovsky and a 36 page booklet designed by Storm Thorgerson. A must have for all Pink Floyd fans, the collection also includes the forgotten and unique recording of "Wish You Were Here," featuring the legendary jazz violinist Stιphane Grappelli.

Nick Mason said of the track: "It's absolutely charming and it brings a different quality to the music... I think that it's perhaps one of the nicest little jewels in the whole collection."

The Experience edition of Wish You Were Here will include the original studio album, digitally remastered by James Guthrie, along with a CD of previously unreleased live and studio recordings (identical to Disc 2 of the Immersion edition) and a new 20 page booklet designed by Storm Thorgerson, housed in a newly designed Digipak.

Released simultaneously, A Foot In The Door - The Best Of Pink Floyd, is a collection of classic Pink Floyd tracks. . This specially remastered compilation also features newly created artwork from Storm Thorgerson. This is the perfect Pink Floyd album for both devoted fans and those discovering Pink Floyd for the very first time. The collection spans the band's entire career.
