Best of Pink Floyd and Wish You Were Here Immersion Box Set Out Now, Win The Full Pink Floyd Catalog!

Wish You Were Here Immersion Box Set
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here

On November 8, EMI will release Immersion and Experience editions of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here, following on from the phenomenal success of the Immersion and Experience editions of the The Dark Side Of The Moon, which proved that pigs can fly! This second phase of EMI’s imaginative Pink Floyd re-issues and extended releases, also includes A Foot In The Door – The Best Of Pink Floyd, with new artwork by Storm Thorgerson and the track listing personally chosen by David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Nick Mason.

Wish You Were Here, Pink Floyd’s ninth studio album, was recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios, and, when originally released in September 1975, it shot to the top of the charts in both the UK and US. The mood of the album is one of absence, which includes one of the most majestic and poignant songs of all time “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” a track inspired by former bandmate Syd Barrett.

In honor of the release of the Experience and Immersion editions of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here and the new greatest hits compilation, A Foot In The Door, I’m giving away a copy of all 14 remastered Pink Floyd studio albums (from 1967′s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn to 1994′s The Division Bell.) Contest ends on Nov 15, 2011 at midnight. One entry per household, US entrants only.

Contest entry form, A Foot In The Door track listing, Wish You Were Here Immersion Box Set track listing and trailer after the jump.
