Wet Dream is the first solo album by Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright, released in 1978.

Composition

Wet Dream was self-produced and Wright wrote all the songs himself, except "Against the Odds", which was co-written with his then-wife, Juliette, who, as Juliette Gale, had been a member of one of the early bands that evolved into Pink Floyd.

Doing this album has helped me get back my creative energies for the next Floyd thing.

Release and reception

The album went virtually unnoticed at the time.[4] The album has long been out of print in Wright's native UK, but it was re-released on CD in the United States and Canada in the 1990s, with some success, and again in 2008 in Australia, following Wright's death.
