Wish You Were Here [Alternate Mix] - Pink Floyd feat. Stéphane Grappelli
So the story goes that Stéphane Grappelli was recording in the studio beneath Pink Floyd when they were working on Wish You Were Here. They thought it might be cool to have a violin at the end so they talked him into doing it (and apparently got taken for a decent chunk of change) and he went to town on this unreleased version. Kind of unreleased. Apparently the violin is still in the mix on the actual album version, but so low they decided to not even credit him.
Really amazing violin work. I can’t believe they mixed this out…
