Although the album was not as well-received by critics as its predecessor, Disintegration, it is the most commercially successful given its debut at No. 1 in the UK and No. 2 in the United States, where it sold 1.2 million copies.

Wish You Were Here (album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1205 words)
The album is largely a tribute to former band member Syd Barrett, whose mental illness and erratic behaviour made it impossible for him to effectively contribute to the band after the album A Saucerful of Secrets.
The album was subsequently re-released in 2000 for its 25th anniversary, on the Capitol Records label in the US, and on the EMI label for the rest of the world.
Wish You Were Here peaked at #1 on Billboard's USA Pop Albums chart(where it stayed for two weeks in October, 1975) and stayed on the charts for a year.
