ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Rick Wright’s next solo album, “Broken China,” came out on March 25, 1996 and this album flowed like a Pink Floyd album via a thematic series of tunes dealing with the debilitating depression his then-wife suffered. Tim Renwick, Domenic Miller, and Steve Bolton performed on guitars, Pino Palladino played the bass parts, Manu Katché played the drums and percussion, and others provided various instruments to complete the project. We think you will love this album as it is a superlative effort by the Pink Floyd keyboardist and vocalist. We hope you will seek it out by visiting Amazon.com or whatever other site you do for the absolute best in rock music. We thank you.
