Album cover of the week: Wish You Were Here

All too often it happens that an album with great artwork is full of forgettable music. Luckily that’s not so with Pink Floyd’s 1975 classic, Wish You Were Here. For my money, this is the ultimate Floyd album and one of the ten best albums of all-time.

One of the really appealing things about this cover – aside from how surreal it is -is how ambiguous it is. There may be a definite story or scenario behind this photo, but it’s vague enough to allow you to make up your own. I know I’ve made up more than a few.

This is one of many memorable covers designed by the famed design group Hipgnosis, whose work will undoubtedly pop up at least a few more times in future installments in this series.
