This is a discography of solo vinyl albums (LPs) that have been released in Japan by Rick Wright.

Any comments, corrections or additions to this discography are appreciated.


  1. Matrix Information: Matrix information is the letters and numbers etched into the vinyl near the label, in the runoff groove at the end of each side of a record.
    Matrix information may include:
    1. Catalog number.
    2. Lacquer number.
    3. Record pressing plant.
    The matrix information listed in this discography is not intended to be complete listings. This is known matrix information only.

  2. obi strips: An obi is a paper band that is wrapped around the cover of a Japanese album to provide the consumer with information about the record in Japanese. Information on an obi may include the name of the artist, title of the album, type of music, song titles, price of the LP, and special release information (red vinyl, master sound, etc.). These bands, which are named after the sash worn with a Japanese kimono, are very collectible and add value to the accompanying album. Assorted releases are pictured with obi strips throughout this discography.
    Promos: Since the purpose of obi strips is to give purchasing information to the consumer, many promotional releases were not issued with an obi strip. All the early Odeon and Toshiba white label promo releases did not come with an obi strip. However, the later CBS / Sony promo releases had obi strips, as their promo LPs were just regular releases with promotional printing added to the labels.
