Gary Wright & Wonderwheel – Ring Of Changes – CD Review14th July 2016
For the 1st in 44 years Gary Wright & Wonderwheel finally get to release Ring of Changes which, for some unbeknownst reason, the label at the time shelved, after opting to release the single I know.
New liner notes & original artwork have been lovingly re-produced in the accompanying booklet & totally over seen by Gary Wright himself.
One thing that will strike the listener to this “lost classic” is not only does it have one hell of a cool groove, but it doesn’t sound like a 44-year-old album. Recording techniques around this time were fantastic & sounds timeless.
Gary Wright took to the studio just after his departure from Spooky Tooth & after participating with George Harrison on his album “All Things Must Pass”. Harrison returns the favour & appears on a few tracks on this opus. Which makes this a bit of a collector’s item for Beatles enthusiasts & completests alike.
Ring Of Changes is available from the 29th of July via Esoteric Records & will also be available from all the usual outlets.
