Today is the 45th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here. I love this album and I couldn’t leave a tune off of it. I could possibly shorten “Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-157)” but not eliminate the song altogether. However, my favorite tune on this album would have to be this one. I always loved the way the Charlotte-based band GreenLight did it and I didn’t find a video of them so I tried another approach. I think this is a fantastic version.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“I’ve always had a deep respect and I mean that most sincere; the band is just fantastic, that is really what I think, oh, by the way, which one’s Pink?And did we tell you the name of the game, boy? We call it ‘Riding The Gravy Train’.” – “Have a Cigar” (Waters)
