This is my favorite Pink Floyd album. I remember being fascinated by the cover but frightened by the music when I was very young. It contains one of the finest vocal performances on "Have A Cigar" by English Folk Madman Roy Harper. Roger Waters has said he regrets being talked out of doing the vocals himself by the rest of the band but I'm glad it happened that way. It was during these sessions that former member Syd Barrett, who had become a recluse after leaving 6 years earlier due to drug problems, visited the studio. Coincidentally during the recording of Roger Waters tribute song to him, "Shine On You Crazy Diamond". "The Story Of Wish You Were Here" comes out on June 26th.
