Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Clare Torry is a British singer who famously performed the wordless vocals on Pink Floyd's "The Great Gig in the Sky" on the 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon. Coming from a well-to-do background, Clare Torry attended Battle Abbey School in East Sussex, where she found it hard to cope with the school's conservative and strict code, making it difficult for the teachers to support her singing and songwriting skills. By the end of the 1960s, Clare Torry managed to start a career as a performer, mainly based on covers of popular songs. Alan Parsons asked her to take part in Pink Floyd's recording of the album The Dark Side of the Moon, on the instrumental song penned by Richard Wright going under the name of "The Great Gig in the Sky."show more
