Released to mark the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd's legendary Wish You Were Here, this album features the London Orion Orchestra performing a symphonic interpretation of the album, recorded at Abbey Road Studios where Pink Floyd did the original. From the world of rock, keyboardist Rick Wakeman and singer Alice Cooper kick things off with the vocal version of Wish You Were Here, while guitarists Stephen McElroy (Steve Mac) and Dave Fowler from tribute band the Australian Pink Floyd Show bring their best Floydian fretwork to the instrumental version. For good measure, the album programme concludes with Eclipse taken from another iconic Floyd album, Dark Side of the Moon.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
