i was a little leary about buying this as there is a glut of early live material out there, some of it not good. this is a fantastic 2cd set. it covers the early softs with wyatt/ratledge/ayers and ends with charig/dean/dobson/hopper, etc. first five tracks are the rockin' side of the softs, the rest is from mostly second and third. the sound quality is excellent and the performances are top. wyatts vocals, especially on Dedicated to You... are superior. great liner notes and photos accompany this cd. this is a must have recording.

I've got a lot of Soft Machine. A lot. And I was thinking this CD would just be another brick in the wall. But the first four tracks alone of this 2-cd set make the price well worth it. Here are Ayers and Wyatt going at it with amazing pop weirdness with Lowry guru Mike Ratledge just laying back. Disk 2 features more of the classic quartet with Elton Dean and the band mostly performing from their "classic" 1970 period. Insert book from Hux Records is first rate with excellent color reproduction of a number of hard-to-find promo shots. If you like the Softs, this is a must have CD.

Format: Audio CD
The Soft Machine, when their star had risen the highest and for one brief perfect period of time, were one of the most exciting, imaginative progressive-fushion bands anywhere on any continent. This two-disc set, for the most part captures the Softs in their ascention and at the peak of their creativity. The first disc is pretty much flawless material for any Soft Machine fan. The first five tracks feature Kevin Ayers; I love the version of Clarence in Wonderland, which would later figure as part of a suite on Kevin Ayers's second solo album. The version of Moon In June here is nearly identical (it probably is the same version) as that on the Peel Sessions. The only tough lemon to swallow for me ws Fletcher's Blemish (which is exactly what that song is!) as it goes nowhere and recalls the worst moments of pointless jazz noodling; for avante garde enthusiasts only. But the best song, hands down, is the 20 minute plus workout of Mousetrap-Esther's Nose Job suite. It's simply amazing, and as Hugh Hopper said in his liner notes, the best jazz they ever recorded. Elton Dean's saxophone on this song, and throughout the rest of this collection, comes across like an ongoing whip-crack, especially on Virtually, the opener for the second disc. The BBC Radio sessions represents the Soft Machine in all their experimental and inventive glory. This, and not the successive albums of banality that came after Third, is how they should be remembered and appreciated.
