Today marks the day that EMI releases the expanded editions of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here and the best-of compilation A Foot in the Door (following the earlier deluxe release of Dark Side of the Moon. To celebrate, PopMatters would like to give you a taste of the Immersion box set via a teaser video as well as a chance to win your own copy of the remasterd Wish You Were Here. But first we’d like to share some details on these expansive new releases.
From the press release:
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 Stéphane Grappelli.
