Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Rick Wright released his next album, “Identity,” which was a collaboration between himself and Dave “Dee” Harris, entitled, “Identity.” Wright and Harris combined to create an eclectic electronic album that Wright would later admit was something he never should have released but folks, it is what it is. In many way, Wright has been overshadowed by his fellow Pink Floyd bandmates but the man is a keyboard whiz deserving of your attention. We love his contributions to the world of music, both as a member of Floyd and as a solo artist which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out and to add it to their growing album collection. You will find it enjoyable and a must-have addition to all things Pink Floyd.
