Offered for sale is a white label promotional copy of Pink Floyd founder Richard Wright’s 1978 solo LP, Wet Dream.

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.  That’s a pity, as we think it’s a pretty good record.  It’s similar in style to the songs Wright wrote for the group, with an occasional jazzy feel to it.

Side 1:

Mediterranean C (3:52)
Against The Odds (3:59)
Cat Cruise (5:15)
Summer Elegy (4:53)
Waves (4:20)

Side 2:

Holiday (6:12)
Mad Yannis Dance (3:19)
Drop In From The Top (3:26)
Pink’s Song (3:27)
Funky Deux (4:57)

The copy offered for sale is a white label promotional pressing, sent to radio stations to help promote the album.  These pressings are usually the first ones made from the stampers, so they tend to sound better than the common stock copies sold in the stores.

The record is VG++, with a few scuffs on the record from having been removed a few times from the original paper inner sleeve.  It appears to have had little play.  The cover is VG+, with a bit of wear at the edges and on the corners.  The original timing strip is attached to the cover and has no writing on it.  There is also a promotional stamp on the back cover and a hype sticker on the front cover that says, “Rick Wright of PINK FLOYD.”

Nice copy of a pretty good record that’s hard to find these days.
