Agree with those last two! There's some great Rick stuff on Obscured By Clouds, including what I think to be one of his best (and last) solo songs - "Stay".

I love all of his performance in Pompeii. And the bits of him pretending to overdub piano on Us & Them are great too.

While Rick did sing Stay, it was Roger who wrote the lyrics.

Still a great song.

The 14 minute 'Fat Old Sun' from the 1971 BBC Radio In Concert.

For me it has to be 'Wearing the Inside Out'* - it seems a shame that it wasn't performed live more often.

* although it was only co-written by Richard Wright, no clue how much of it was his though I have the thought in my head (from somewhere unremembered) that the lyrics were his.

Music: Richard Wright
Lyrics: Anthony Moore

...and, according to him, Guy Pratt also co-wrote this song with Rick.

Yes. This is correct.

I also like Nick's Boogie and Interstellar Overdrive from the London 66/67 DVD.
