The thing is, when it comes to sources, the production team, especially the engineers, are generally the best resource
David Gilmour knows when it's David Gilmour on bass.

For recordings I've engineered, I've often gotten the question from the musicians, years later, 'Did I play that???
Good musicians recognize their own playing.

So, Guy Pratt is not a good musician? (Because he himself recounts a story of hearing some "completely over the top" bass playing on a Madonna album he played on, and asking her who played that, only to be told it was him!)

Guy Pratt cannot recognize his own playing on a Madonna album. It's because his playing was indistinct. Generic enough to fool the one who performed it. I suppose we can cut him some slack since he was just going through the motions as a paid studio hack.

Ok, a different question: WHEN did Rick become part of Floyd again? We know he wasn't one for Momentary, but was he back before, during or after The Division Bell?

I remember reading an interview where Rick Wright was discussing his dismissal from the band and how he felt it was quite incongruous when Roger Waters, during the 80/81 Wall tour, would often compliment his live playing; considering the fact that the, apparent, poor quality of his playing was one of Waters' reasons for orchestrating his removal from the band).

Well, between AMLOR and the Division Bell there is a 'La Carrera Panamericana' soundtrack (1992). Rick became a full member of the band again then, and participated in composing at least two songs: "Carrera Slow Blues" and "Pan Am Shuffle".
