Soft Machine were one of first and one of the greatest jazz/rock bands of all time. Their importance and influence was especially great in Europe, where they influenced several generations of bands, and their influences can still be heard to this day in bands like Jaga Jazzist and beyond. Grides presents the most famous version of the band (Elton Dean, Hugh Hopper, Mike Ratledge, Robert Wyatt) recorded live at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam on October 25, 1970, in a high-quality, previously unreleased recording, just a few months after the release of Third and at the peak of their popularity.

A great hardswinging album with lots of fire..groove and a lovely mix os 60s-70s jazz psychedelia.. if you like Herbie Hancock mwandishi…you will love this..or if you like ……. Brew ..Coltrane -Love supreme. This isn't so much a recreation as it is a reinvestigation of the fusion genre in that brief period thirty odd years ago when the idea was rife with positive implications and before the sterility set in. While this program isn't as radical in its departure from the norm as Miles Davis' music from that period was (what is?) it still burns with greater intensity than more established names seem to muster.
