    Soft Machine gets spooky here, this strange track was composed by Hugh Hopper, who also added the special effects.
    I enjoy all four of the studio cuts on the studio portion of Six, each track is unique.

    Softs & Bundles are ESSENTIAL in my world!

    Bundles and Softs would have made a great double LP!

    I had errands to run today and listened to Fourth in its entirety. Absolute gem of a studio release. I still prefer my insane proggy jazz to be live, but I've no complaints. I think I'll ring in the new year with some live '74 Grateful Dead. The 8/6/74 Playin'--> Scarlet--> Playin' has some Soft Machine-esque moments. Some crazy Henry Cow to follow. Happy 2020 to y'all.

    I go in and out on Soft Machine. Early up to late '69 isn't my cuppa; late '69 - late '72 is my wheelhouse. After that, it's hit and miss.

    So I saw on Twitter today that there is a new Soft Machine live album forthcoming -
    `live at the Baked Potato'. I'm assuming that this is the current edition of the group.
    Vinyl release only, apparently.
