A rather difficult Pink Floyd related item to find and a pretty good record, too.

Background: Pink Floyd took a bit of a break in between 1977’s Animals and 1979’s The Wall and during that break, guitarist David Gilmour and keyboard player Richard Wright took time to release solo albums.

Gilmour’s album got a fair amount of airplay, but Wright’s album more or less disappeared without a trace and soon went out of print, peaking at #203 on the U.S. album chart.

Allmusic.com gave Wet Dream a 3 star review:

Wright assembled some of the backing musicians who had been accompanying Pink Floyd for years, in particular reed player Mel Collins and guitarist Snowy White. So it was no surprise that the resulting record, Wet Dream, sounded like outtakes from Pink Floyd sessions. Wright’s keyboards had always been a major element in the Pink Floyd sound, and his singing and songwriting had also been a big part of the group’s music, despite the increasing domination of Roger Waters.
