I purchased the prog book "Mountains Come Out Of The Sky" and it talks at length about FLOYD.One of the co-managers Peter Jenner talked about early on when they played clubs.He said that what made FLOYD different from other bands was the wall of sustained noise they could create.Syd and Rick had Echoplex on their instruments and between the two of them well... Also the keyboardist for the band CLOUDS said "I couldn't even judge Rick Wright as a player:He was concentrating on using (keyboards) as a sound instrument.It was all very original.I'd never heard anything like it".

His contributions to Wish You Were Here and his voice on Time is how I always remember his genius behind the keyboards. Also Live at Pompeii he was in top form
