THE STORY OF WISH YOU WERE HERE:
One of the most popular musical groups is Pink Floyd and if you think that you knew everything about the album Wish You Were Here then this documentary will give you some new insights. Even if you know only a little or nothing at all about the album but you like the songs then this documentary will be more than just entertaining to watch. The Story of Wish You Were Here tells the reasons why the popular album Wish You Were Here that came out in 1975 is so popular and how it came to be what it is. Giving this history is none other than Pink Floyd band members David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Nick Mason, as well as interviews with managers, producers, and others that were involved with the group.
This is a really informative and entertaining documentary to watch, it’s one of the better documentaries that I’ve seen on a band in a while. Though I really enjoy the music of Pink Floyd it was not because of the music that I liked watching this documentary. What I liked was listening to the band members talking about the songs from the album, about what they thought about singing them, about how the songs came to be, about how Roger Waters at first didn’t like large audiences at the concerts, and pretty much all the other stories being told.
Throughout the documentary the band members of Pink Floyd talk and share their memories about Syd Barrett, who was one of the founding members of Pink Floyd before he left the band. We get to see both Roger Waters and David Gilmour play and sing some of the songs off of the album while giving their side of what the songs are about. There’s just so much that makes this documentary entertaining. Though I think what I liked the most about this documentary wasn’t the band members talking about the songs from the album but getting to learn about the album artwork and how it was produced was great stuff. There’s some good editing done here where the documentary has a easy flow to it where at no time does it get off point. By the end of it I was left with wanting more and to be listening to the great album of Wish You Were Here.
PINK FLOYD DOCUMENTARY ON BLU RAY.
As you can tell I enjoyed watching this documentary but there’s more to it than just the stories being told by the members of Pink Floyd. The look of the Blu Ray is really nice, though not much is going on because everyone is sitting in the one room so there’s not much action, but it looks good. The 1080i picture quality is sharp, maybe a little too sharp and clear because I can see that the guys that I’ve been rocking to for many years are getting old, but other than that, the picture quality is nice. The colors are bright, everything is easily seen with no grain or noise in the picture. Audio levels on the Blu Ray are clear and crisp where what’s being said is clear and understood.
