1979 ish, reading Dune by Frank Herbert, and listening to Wet Dream by Richard Wright. A commercial flop at the time, but it stuck with me. Out of print in the UK and not available for commercial download. I managed to get a copy on CD from Amazon.
Listening to it again, memories came back. Not as evocative of Dune as I remembered. I thought at the time it would make a good soundtrack to a film version, but I was probably wrong. Very Floydian, as you might expect given Richard’s contribution to Pink Floyd. Take away Gilmour’s guitar and Waters’ lyrics and you have the Floyd rhythm section in a nutshell.
Fully demonstrates Richard’s ability to weave the Floyd soundscapes, but weak lyrically. Ultimately too much like the Floyd without Gilmour and Waters and not a work in its own right.
