It was sad to read this. I'm a big PINK FLOYD fan. They are one of the great innovator's in the music world.

The organ was key to the classic Pink Floyd sound, but like titoli said, that sound's been dead for years; still it's sad that Wright--anyone--has to die so young. Set the controls for the heart of the Floyd Retrospective.

Those songs are okay, as is "Summer '68" on Atom Heart Mother. But Wright's strength was not in solo composition, but as a member of a writing team. Thus, his best contributions are to be found on "Interstellar Overdrive," "A Saucerful of Secrets" and the main theme from More. I listened to those again last night: still as great as ever.

Also Stay from Obscured by Clouds, which I think is the only song credited to both Rick & Roger, a great song from an overlooked album(the transition between the Meddle and DSotM style could be heard)

Stay:

Also Burning Bridges from the same album is a great Rick/Dave song, as good as their duet on Echoes and Time in my opinion:
