Of all my LPs from my youth this was definitely my favourite. The Moon in June was very good, very like Soft Machine 1 material (for some reason I never heard 2). Facelift and Outbloodyrageous were better but the star of the album is Slightly All the Time. Robert Wyatt's drumming is excellent and Hugh Hopper's bass playing the best I ever heard but the high point for me was the Elton Dean's saxaphone - a new instrument for someone who had been used to listening to rock bands. Listening to the album 30 years on it has not lost any of its appeal.
