“Wish You Were Here” To Get An All-Star Tribute

It’s difficult to argue that there have been enough homages paid to PINK FLOYD by now – just as difficult that there have been a lot of remotely recorded albums lately. Still, with remote work being a new norm and a tribute to prog protagonists that includes such different luminaries as Rat Scabies and Bootsy Collins alongside art-rock elite, it’s impossible to not pay attention to the “Still Wish You Were Here” project which is scheduled for the May 28th release. Then again, it’s strange to hear so massive a cast present on a fresh reproduction of an LP based on the concept of absence.

But then, who can ignore a thematic collection of pieces featuring the usual suspects in unusual ensembles. It’s all going to look like this (read the review):
