Wow, finally. And Official. Some soundscapes are extracts separated from tracks of his solo works. So there was meddling with mix in any way. That means his music is in some process of revisiting. <ii>

Very interesting. I wonder if there might be something in the works to be released, perhaps unheard so far.

Very nice.

Rick's family thank to many people for a help(Gilmour and Mason including), but absence by Roger Waters is striking. :-;

That's one of the first thing i noticed as well. :?:

The site is a nice tribute, and even if there is no new music to be released, it would be nice if it helps Rick's albums to be made available on Itunes and Amazon for people to buy.

Really beautiful website that could only grow in time. Hopefully soon there'll be some sort of affiliated store link to Rick's music. And I hope too for physical formats.
Thanks for posting!

Broken China on vinyl is something I really need in my life! It's one of my favourite Pink Floyd-related albums, and although I have the original on CD I'd love to have it on vinyl to add to my collection. Here's to hoping this new website is a step closer to a Nick Mason-style compilation of all his solo works in a vinyl boxset, maybe with a collection of unreleased content as well.

When did this version of the website launch? Looking at the links to the images in his scrapbook, it uses a wordpress site manager and the images folders range from March 2019 to June 2019 mainly, with one update from August 2020. Unless it has been a work in progress for a little while. I tried the waybackmachine but doesn't cache certain sites.

Either way, I have not seen the site before and enjoyed it a lot. ;-)

I wonder if there are any album releases on the horizon. A nice new LP perhaps. 8)

I highly doubt Rick or his family would want anything to do with Roger on his website. Rick certainly didn't feel that Roger was justified in forcing him out of the band, and afterwards he went into a very long depression. After Live 8, Rick said he was glad that they were able to get back together for one day, but only for that one day, and that they could never have toured with Roger again because his approach to music (or lack thereof) was so different from theirs. "I think I could maybe have a beer with him."

Strange that the music link doesn't contain any of his music
