Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First off, the product information is incorrect. This is a TWO CD SET. What has been compiled here, is a collection of three different bootleg recordings of SOFT MACHINE, when they were at the top of their game. The first recording (Paradiso 69) has a very good sound quality , since it was recorded professionally for a live album that was never released. LIVE AT THE PARADISO, recorded in March 1969, is why you would want to buy this collection, tho be is NOT the entire recording of that concert. The band preforms the second soft machine album, with some extra jamming. Listening to Soft Machine live in 1969, the stylistic connections to the Mothers of Invention really come out. Lots of small songs, all connected into a suite, the jazz and avant guarde modernists influences, intelligent songwriting and high level of musicianship, all prove SOFT MACHINE were the one British band that sounded most like Zappa's Mothers. I was very impressed with those first 9 songs from early 1969. The one problem some people might have with this version of SOFT MACHINE, is that you only have three musicians making the sound. We are talking about a keyboard player, a bass player, and an incredible drummer. So if you think this sounds like THE NICE or ELP, think again. Actually, on the PARADISO cuts, I thought it sounded like a psychedelic-jazz keyboard trio. Once you get past the psychedelic sound effects and freeform jazz, you can hear the minimalism in the way the organ may just play the same four chord forms over and over, while the drummer explodes over his kit, or when the bass player hangs on a simple five or six note figure, while the keyboard player rips. Now, if this whole anthology sounded as good as PARADISO 1969, that would be fantastic.Read more ›

Look, I know another reviewer was crabbing about audio quality on disc 2 but you know what? The performance is so nuts that the sound becomes a secondary issue and you know what else? The sound on disc 2 is WAY better then I was expecting. I mean...soup to nuts...for the price of this, this is a GREAT buy. There is only ONE Soft Machine.
