4 stars Wow.... just discovered this.... like unearthing lost treasure. Anyone into Pink Floyd MUST hear this, although sadly it's hard to get hold of.

Perhaps because Richard Wright is no longer with us I find it quite a moving process listening through and also because it is such a melancholic album with many of the about relationship break down. This theme is prescient as the album was made around the time at which Richard's days in Pink Floyd were numbered, given the dominance of the band by Roger Waters.

However, this album confirms to me how important Richard Wright was to the classic sound of Pink Floyd... never a virtuoso player, his musical personality is there in the 'feel' of his playing, in those wonderful elegiac 'Great Gig'-like chord progressions, and in his distinctive vocals.

The whole album is a laid back affair with instrumentals and songs interspersed more or less evenly throughout. The production is beautiful and the playing by Mel Collins and Snowy White is absolutely exemplary.

Wonderful stuff...

Neil C | 4/5 |
