For those who have only heard Soft Machine’s Third or any of their later work,
the first two Soft Machine albums might be a difficult listen, unless of course you find
psychedelic musics of interest. The truth is there is plenty of the jazz rock stylings Soft
Machine would become better known for later on, just not on the level you would expect.
This is a delightful album from a band that played with Pink Floyd on numerous
occasions during this era at the legendary UFO club and toured the US with Jimi
Hendrix. In other words they were in the thick of the UK psych/ experimental scene.
Wish I could develop a time machine.....
