Gary Wright's Dream Weaver Getting 24 Karat Gold Reissue
Gary Wright is often associated with a specific time and cultural place: the mid-1970s, when popular music was frequently experimenting and pushing boundaries and an unconventional track like "Dream Weaver" could ascend to Number 2 on the singles charts. American-born Wright released the spacey yet hook-filled The Dream Weaver in June of 1975, after serving time with British rockers Spooky Tooth and contributing to George Harrison's All Things Must Pass.
The Dream Weaver stayed on the charts for 75 consecutive weeks, and while Wright went on to record more long-players, it remains his biggest seller and among a handful of releases that will forever conjure memories of the mid-'70s for rock aficionados of a certain age. The title cut has been featured in such films as Wayne's World and Toy Story 3.
