Songs of The Day: Pink Floyd – Paintbox, and Paintbox (Datashat remix)

Happy birthday, to Pink Floyd’s, Richard Wright. Paintbox is that rare Floyd beast, a track both composed and sung by Wright. Although the video features David Gilmour, in his first promotional appearance with Floyd, Syd Barrett was featured on the recording, which was the B-side to the Apples and Oranges single. This song is so good, it leaves me wondering why Wright wasn’t spotlighted more frequently, particularly through the difficult post-Syd transition period.

I’ve gotta include this remix from Datashat. Respectful to the original, imho, but big, club ready and still trippy.
