    Description

    Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here RIAA Platinum Album Award (Columbia AL 33453, 1975). Recorded in the first half of 1975 and released in September of that year, Wish You Were Here consists of three Progressive Rock classics ("Wish You Were Here," "Have a Cigar," and "Welcome to the Machine") bookended by "Shine On You Crazy Diamond," a massive, nine-part tribute to former member Syd Barrett, split into two sections. Critical response was initially lukewarm, but Wish has since been recognized as the colossal achievement it is. However, with sales eventually skyrocketing to an estimated 13 million worldwide, this album was a commercial juggernaut from the beginning. What truly makes this piece "shine" is that it wasn't presented to the label, producer,or studio, but to Pink Floyd vocalist/multi-instrumentalist David Gilmour to commemorate platinum status. Framed to 17" x 21". Excellent.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
