David Gilmour Discusses “Wish You Were Here” with CDJ’s Paul Rappaport

In September of 2011, CDJ’s Paul Rappaport met with David Gilmour on the legendary musician’s house boat/recording studio, Astoria, to discuss the making of Pink Floyd’s 9th studio album Wish You Were Here.

Released on September 12, 1975 Wish You Were Here quickly reached the top of the record charts in both the United Kingdom and the United States.  It sold so fast that Harvest Records/EMI was unable to print enough copies to meet the demand.

While the album initially received mixed reviews, it went on to receive  critical acclaim and is widely considered to be not just one of the greatest Prog Rock albums ever but also one of the best albums of all time.  Both Richard Wright and David Gilmour have cited it as their favourite Pink Floyd album.
