Alpha Blondy “Wish You Were Here”

Pink Floyd’s 1975 song “Wish You Were Here” is one of my favorite songs. So, when a friend directed me to this cover of the song by Côte d’Ivoire based reggae singer Alpha Blondy, I approached it with a little bit of trepidation. In this live performance, Blondy not only makes the song a perfect reggae number, but also manages to find room for bagpipes. Suffice to say, I was pleasantly surprised. Check it out.
