    David Gilmour is one of my all-time favorite rock guitarists and this is my favorite Pink Floyd song. A wonderful tribute to Syd Barrett. I saw them perform this at Madison Square Garden a long long time ago. RIP Rick Wright and Syd Barrett.

    I bought the Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here SACD when it was first released and previewed at the 2011 RMAF. Great album both artistically and sonically.

    I saw them twice in the 1970's while Roger Waters was still a member. Reading the history of the band it is amazing they survived Barrett going mental and leaving. He was the founder, and song writer. The performances I saw I would characterize as dark. It was around the time between Ummagumma and Meddle.

    I saw them in the 80ís with Gilmour, Wright and Mason. The emphasis was totally on music and off the lyrics with the band drawing little to no attention to themselves. I felt like they were painting a musical portrait for the audience to enjoy. It was a wonderful performance that Iíll never forget.

    My favorites were always:
    1973 - Dark Side of the Moon
    1975- Wish You Were Here
    1977- Animals

    In that order. Three tremendous albums in a five-year period.

    Meddle is a terrific album. I love to listen to Animals when Iím driving by myself on a lonely highway in the middle of the night.

    Re: Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond 1990 Live Video

    All PF albums are immortal, even I find Division Bell, which is a departure from the original "Pink Floyd Sound", to be excellent and musically satisfying but there is something very very especial about Wish You Were Here that can't be expressed in words. I don't know what state of mind PF were at the time they created & composed these songs but I consider this entire album to be the very best of PF creation, followed by DSOTM, off-coarse my personal opinion only.

    My first PF album was Piper At the Gates of Dawn, followed by Wish You Were Here, DSOTM and others...all in the 80's and in Cassette tape format, since then I became so much engrossed that we started slowly owning them in various physical media lp, cd, vhs & dvd concerts, sacd over the time and now digital. Its a fun journey.

    I loved Pink Floyd in the 70s, and probably still do. Saw them in MD in 74/75, forgot exactly when. Reading this thread made me nostalgic, so I checked HDTracks for downloads. Unfortunately, none of their albums are available.

    Qobuz & Acoustic Sounds have a few of the late Waters-less albums in Hi-Res: The Division Bell, "The Later Years", Delicate Sound of Thunder, The Endless River, etc. But it is a shame that DSOTM & WYWH haven't been made available as Hi-Res downloads, since they already did all the work for the SACDs...

    Re: Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond 1990 Live Video

    I've been thinking and for me the Pink Floyd masterpiece remains The Wall.
    It's not just the magnificent music and lyrics. It is the atmosphere of the entire album, from the bomb that announces death when it falls, but what follows is life in the form of a baby's cry, passing through all the social (especially the war) and individual problems portrayed in songs such as Comfortably Numb.
    Despite Dark Side Of the Moon and Wish You were Here are so great, to me, the album that has achieved a similar atmosphere like The Wall is The Final Cut.

    But the choice is difficult and personal, and we can never forget songs like "On the turning way" and the amaizing guitar solo, or songs like "One of these Days", probably the most energetic song ever!
    And so on and so on...

    Re: Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond 1990 Live Video

    Yes, The Wall is in the top 3 for me. I am very disappointed that it hasn't gotten the SACD (or Hi-Res) treatment that it deserves...

    Re: Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond 1990 Live Video

    I like some of the older stuff such as Ummagumma. An older video in Pompeii got me into older Floyd. I first saw it with the old RCA vinyl video system. A couple years ago I bought it in DVD. By the way, the audio of this Live in Pompeii is included with the 1972 Obfusc/ation compilation.

    On digital downloads there are several compilations available, Early Years, Later Years, etc. The only two albums are The Endless River and The Division Bell I believe. No DSD downloads but the two SACDs, Wish You Were Here and Dark Side. I extracted the DSD files off my SACDs so as to have them on my server.

    In my view the best sounding Pink Floyd that is available is the 2016 remasters from the original analog tapes and given the full audiophile treatment on the 180g vinyl pressings. I believe they did most of their catalog (not sure on the later less Roger Waters titles). I have several of these and feel they are excellent! I currently have Ummagumma, Meddle, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall, and The Final Cut in these outstanding versions!
