Zee (CD)
Never before officially released on CD - this is Pink Floyd's Rick Wright's other band. Relationships within Pink Floyd had been getting ever more strained as the 1970s dragged on, and by the time that the band convened to record the Roger Waters masterwork, The Wall, keyboard player Rick Wright had reached a head.
