If you like the Soft Machine or Robert Wyatt then this is essential
on 16 October 2013
How does Cuneiform keep doing it releasing high Quality archive music from `The Soft Machine' and ex Band members?
This release is an intimate hour of music with Robert Wyatt, 3 songs which are better known in there `Soft Machine' form but here as pretty complete demos.
The best known historically is the 20 minute `Moon in June' which went on to be a core side on `Third'.
Rivmic Melodies demo is chock full of themes which make up Volume 2 (`Pataphysical Introduction' & `Concise Alphabet' being prominent)
The Kevin Ayers co-write `Chelsa' contains themes carried over from `Soft machine' and features the man himself on bass.
The song that sounds least like a Soft Machine song though `Slow Walkin' Talk' is a gem of a song with a pretty far out Bass line from Jimi Hendrix.
4 Songs just over 50 minutes and not one boring moment, if you like the Soft Machine or Robert Wyatt then this is essential.
