Quick Overview

(2-LP set) Recorded in April of 1970, just a few months before the release of Third (soon destined to become their most successful album), this memorable performance marks a significant turning point in the band's history, when Soft Machine had begun exploring in earnest a type of music that would soon become simply known as "fusion". As rock artists began incorporating traditional jazz instruments (like saxophones) into their groups, jazz artists (most famously, Miles Davis on albums like Bitches Brew) began bringing in electric guitars and wah wah pedals. It seemed for a moment that music had managed to transcend genre. Here the band, which now was made up of Hugh Hopper on bass and Elton Dean on keys (in addition to Wyatt and Ratledge), focuses on tunes culled primarily from the upcoming Third as well as their most recent album, Volume Two. 180 gram vinyl
