Understanding Pink Floyd's Classic Album 'Wish You Were Here'
Pink Floyd’s 1975 album 'Wish You Were Here' is an undisputed rock classic. With cover art designed by the legendary Hipgnosis—two businessmen shaking hands, one of them on fire—it explored themes surrounding fame, absence, greed, ambition, the music business, and featured a homage to departed founding member Syd Barrett. A new video by Polyphonic looks at what makes it such a brilliant, yet melancholic album.
