Arthur G Wright - Sad News RIP

Arthur G Wright - Sad News RIP cover

Ady C posted up in the forums today the sad news that Arthur G Wright  passed on last week

"A giant of our music died last week aged 78 years. His influence on soul music was immense and we listen to his arrangements and guitar at virtually every night we go out to dance. So sad"

you can read and comment on this sad news via the forum thread here...

The website Arthur G Wright is well worth a visit as it is full of info, pics and more, the 'about me' section is a 4 page story of his early history and sure there's a lot more on there.


Clip below is from there

...worked for many years as a "first call session player on bass/guitar", my guitar solos have been heard on such recordings as: Diana Ross' "Love Hangover", Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way", and other Motown recording artists such as "Smokey" Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On", and The Temptations . Other artists include Ray Charles, Vikki Carr, Donna Summer, Jose Feliciano, Ike & Tina Turner, Billy Preston and blues singer Little Johnny Taylor. I worked with producer Hal Davis and other producers, even co-produced with him and others over the 20+ years that I worked at Motown Records...
