I added that comment because the language comes across as 'selling' her. I don't know enough about her to change it though. I've certainly never heard her name in connection with the other singers she's compared to though.


Anyone know when she was born?

Tim Ludbrook's Representation of Torry is a Fact, not an Advertisement[edit]

I'm sorry the Wiki-Police removed my reference to Tim Ludbrook's representation of Clare Torry. This was not intended to be advertising, as was harrumphed by the remover. Rather, I had searched for additional reliable & factual sources that Torry was the singer on "Great Gig in the Sky" but was stunned to find no other than the ONE reference that currently remains EXCEPT the mention by Ludbrook himself.

If you can find a better way of including this information as a SOURCE without annoying the Wiki-Police then please do so. Until then:

Torry was represented by barrister Tim Ludbrook.[1]

Also provided backing vocals ( with Maggie Stredder and Joan Baxter ) on " Here and Now " and " Switching Channels " for Peggy Lee album " Peggy " 1977 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wellthisisgood (talkcontribs) 00:44, 10 October 2009 (UTC)


Has this article been nobbled by its subject or someone very close to its subject? The wording is such that it seems like this, especially the bit about the strict school not allowing her to flourish as a singer. That's the sort of thing I'd write about my excperiences, but probably not what anyone else would write about me! Also the source for the out of court settlement (incorrectly referred to as a settlement IN the High Court) is a one-off digital media article. That in turn makes reference to a Daily Telegraph piece, but that isn't cited, so I think we ought to be careful here. DavidFarmbrough (talk) 10:01, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Youtube Article Of Interest[edit]

Lots of good stuff here, from the woman herself, Clare Torry: —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:39, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

The YouTube video has been removed because of multiple third-party copyright infringements by the video and/or uploader. Can you find another source, or this video on YouTube or another website? Styk0n (talk) 12:16, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Clare Torry/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

After 35 years of listening to beauty set to music, this reader would like to know more. Where is Clare Torry from; how did she develop that magnificent style? What were, and are, her muses? How did she feel when she made this recording? What is she up to these days? Will she interview? Clare Torry is the female voice of Pink Floyd, and while not heard as often her statements are deafening.
