If you have that on any album that's new you have a bad setup on your turntable. The remasters is beautiful if you can get past the popping and cracking!! I like the soundscape more than my original Columbia copy. However, the surface mouse makes it almost impossible to enjoy! Too bad!
My copy's dead quiet. A few pops are expected, it's vinyl, but it's really minimal on this. My pressing is clean and the sound quality is crystal clear. This album, being one of my favorite Floyd albums, was the first one I pulled out to listen to. This is certainly an album that has a lot of air and open space and the significant background noise throughout is a troublesome issue.
Overall, I was pretty disappointed in the level of quality of this pressing from the "Pink Floyd" label. Snap crackle and pop. With that said I've purchased this same pressing from Album) different retailers and am yet to find one without Rice Crispies Album) the mix. Save your money and find a different pressing.
The result was that a power supply problem pushed Wright's keyboards completely out of tune, damaging the band's performance. At one point he left the stage, but the band were able to continue with a less sensitive keyboard, a piano and a simpler light show.
Following a brief intermission, they returned to perform The Dark Side of the Moonbut critics displeased about being denied access backstage savaged the performance. Storm Thorgerson had accompanied the band on their tour and had given serious thought to the meaning of the lyrics, eventually deciding that the songs were, in general, concerned with "unfulfilled presence", rather than Barrett's illness. Thorgerson had noted that Roxy Music 's Country Life was sold in an opaque green cellophane sleeve — censoring the cover image — and he copied the idea, concealing the artwork for Wish You Were Here in a black-coloured shrink-wrap therefore making the album art "absent".
The concept behind "Welcome to the Machine" and "Have a Cigar" suggested the use of a handshake an often empty gestureand George Hardie designed a sticker containing the album's logo of two mechanical hands engaged in a handshake, to be placed on the opaque sleeve the mechanical handshake logo would also appear on the labels of the vinyl album this time in a black and blue background.
The album's cover images were photographed by Aubrey "Po" Powell, Storm's partner at the design studio Hipgnosis, and inspired by the idea that people tend to conceal their true feelings, for fear of "getting burned", and thus two businessmen were pictured shaking hands, Part 3 - Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (Vinyl, one man on fire.
Two stuntmen were used Ronnie Rondell and Danny Rogersone dressed in a fire-retardant suit covered by a business suit. His head was protected by a hood, underneath a wig. The photograph was taken at the Warner Bros.
The two stuntmen changed positions, and the image was later reversed. The album's back cover depicts a faceless "Floyd salesman", in Thorgerson's words, "selling his soul" in the desert shot in the Yuma Desert in California again by Aubrey "Po" Powell. The absence of wrists and ankles signifies his presence as an "empty suit". The inner sleeve shows a veil concealing a nude woman in a windswept Norfolk grove, and a splash-less diver at Mono Lake — titled Monosee the German translation of Mono Lake on the liner notes — in California again emphasising the theme of absence.
EMI were less concerned;   the band were reportedly extremely happy with the end product, and when presented with a pre-production mockup, they accepted it with a spontaneous round of applause. On release, the album received mixed reviews. Ben Edmunds wrote in Rolling Stone that the band's "lackadaisical demeanor" leaves the subject of Barrett "unrealised; they give such a matter-of-fact reading of the goddamn thing that they might as well be singing about Roger Waters's brother-in-law getting a parking ticket.
A positive review came from Robert Christgau in The Village Voice : "The music is not only simple and attractive, with the synthesizer used mostly for texture and the guitar breaks for comment, but it actually achieves some of the symphonic dignity and cross-referencing that The Dark Side of the Moon simulated so ponderously.
It has soul, that's why — it's Roger Waters's lament for Syd, not my idea LP a tragic hero but as long as he's Roger's that doesn't matter. Wish You Were Here has since been frequently regarded as one of the greatest albums. According to Acclaimed Musicit is the th-most ranked record on critics' all-time lists. Wish You Were Here was voted number one. Despite the problems during production, the album remained Wright's favourite: "It's an album I can listen to for pleasure, and there aren't many Floyd albums that I can.
The end result of all that, whatever it was, Part 3 - Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (Vinyl has left me an album I can live with very very happily. I like it very much. Wish You Were Here has been remastered and re-released on several formats.
