Soft Machine were one of England's original psychedelic bands, rising out of the same 'UFO CLUB' London scene at the same time as Pink Floyd. Originally founded in Autumn, 1966 as a four piece of Daevid Allen-guitar, Kevin Ayers-bass, vocals, Mike Ratledge- organ and Robert Wyatt- drums, vocals, they became a trio in August, 1967 when Australian Daevid was denied re-entry into the UK after a French tour. The trio continue onward playing many shows and slowly building an audience in 'swinging London' and beyond. The band releases a 45 and link with Jimi Hendrix's management which culminates in the Softs touring the USA with the Jimi Hendrix Experience two different times in 1968, playing over 60 shows as their opening act and recording their first album while in the USA during their tours. This captures the 1967-era Soft Machine (Kevin Ayers, Mike Ratledge, Robert Wyatt) in full concert glory, recorded live in swinging London's legendary Middle Earth club. The performance is unbelievably freaky for 1967, with songs that feature unusual structures linked by wild solos and improvisations.
Soft Machine: Kevin Ayers (guitar, bass, vocals); Mike Ratledge (organ); Robert Wyatt (drums, vocals)
