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

Composition[edit]

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.

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

Release and reception[edit]

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 USA and Canada in the 1990s, with some success, and again in 2008 in Australia, following Wright's death.
