J'étais au troisième rang à gauche devant l'autel.

Impressionnant, à la sortie du concert la fumée cachant le plafond de l'église,
l'odeur de la fumée et l'amoncellement de prie-Dieu au fond de l'église.

Soft Machine - Sweet Music - Live An Rare 1966-1969

3 CD set containing rare Soft Machine material right from the very beginning to the "Third" period. Includes rare singles, demos, outtakes, related material by ex band members and very rare live material.

The studio stuff all sounds pretty much perfect. The 1969 live stuff is in very good / excellent quality, while the 1967/1968 live stuff probably only merits a "fair" sound rating but is worth hearing simply because it is so incredibly rare (particularly the complete performance from the Merriweather Post Pavilion in August 1968 which was on the tour when they were support for the Jimi Hendrix Experience). The collaboration between Wyatt and Hendrix, "Slow Walkin' Talk", is also a highlight, partly because it's a great song and partly because it's interesting to hear Hendrix play bass. Also features a brilliant 20 minute demo of "Moon In June" and all known live recordings of the short-lived septet line up which collapsed because of the logistical problems involved in getting so many people and their instruments around in a panel van. :-)

Highly recommended to anyone who is a fan of early Soft Machine, particularly the "Jet Propelled Photographs" collection and the "Soft Machine", "Volume 2" and "Third" albums.

Here presented last ever recording with Kevin Ayers. Unfortunately, all recordings from this concert was from audience recording. But...it's just f$ckin' great! Mike Ratledge's killer organ solos, Wyatt's crazy drum solos and mystic Ayers vocal. True psychedelia.

I know, many people (fans of the group) search for more concerts from this famous tour. Now his day! Last 15 minutes of "Hollywood Bowl" recorded and existed 40 years in private hands. Now this is here. This concert was last ever concert with Kevin Ayers and last ever 15 minutes of his playing with group.

Enjoy

FESTIVAL ACTUEL, AMOUGIES (Belgium)
Day Five - October 28, 1969

SOFT MACHINE

source: audience recording
Well, this is the end, I'm afraid... The last in our Amougies series, and a personal favourite.

This is the only recording in circulation of a complete concert by the shortlived septet line-up of Soft Machine. Amougies wasn't quite their debut (they played a warm-up gig in Liverpool a few days before) but this is certainly where most people heard them for the first time. Although a major change in the band's instrumentation, the addition of a brass section didn't actually alter their basic set all that much, the only composition written especially for this line-up being "Pigling Bland", the new coda to "Esther's Nosejob". Everything else (including the rare coda to "Facelift" which shows up on the September trio gig from Amsterdam) had been played by the trio (and quartet with Brian Hopper). Similarly, the fact that Robert Wyatt doesn't sing much was not so much a consequence of the enlarged line-up than one of its causes - apart from Hopper and Ratledge's new compositions being all-instrumental, Wyatt just couldn't cope with his dual role very well. Actually, the Amougies concert has some of his best live singing, particularly the "New York" sequence of "Moon In June". This was in part due to the band's recent acquisition of an Echoplex echo chamber. But most of "Moon In June", alas, is played instrumentally... but it is played very well, particularly by Ratledge who makes expert use of fuzz and wah-wah. All in all, this is a precious document of an exceptional line-up, a welcome complement to what little is available commercially (on "BBC Radio 1967-71" and "Backwards").

Apparently, the first half of this set was broadcast on radio at the time, on either the Belgian RTBF or Luxemburg's RTL, and is in circulation in bootleg form. The sound is arguably better than the recording here, but I opted to leave this version as it is as it offers a slightly different sonic perspective on the performance. I think the broadcast version has been seeded here already anyway. Perhaps a repeat would be a good idea.

Just before we go on (...to the next part of our song...), the usual warning about the sound quality - the tape recorder used was way below modern standards and the sound is nowhere near "professional" quality. This reservation aside, however, this is simply an unbelievable document of a legendary festival, and so our hearfelt thanks to the taper, JJB, for recording this at the time, and for allowing me to seed it here.

This show is a part of a compilation I downloaded some years ago on Dimeadozen (2007 I guess). The rest of the compilation was the March 1970 Paris Show (now available on an official DVD) and the session for the BBC Sounds of the Seventies from September 1970 that I will post soon.
I don't have a lot of information about it... All I know is that it comes from a FM radio broadcast and that it seems to be from a low generation tape. The sound is almost perfect altough it seems that it has been processed. Anyway, it's the best source I found for this date.

Nero spectrum analyser shows frequencies beyond 20khz, so it isn't lossy and
probably has come from a reel recording.

Changes Made (Nero 7):
--------------------------
Cross-mixed all tracks (60:40)
- Fixed balance offset
- Significantly improved the venue 'boxey' sound
- Eliminated the very high low frequency noise
- Instruments are clearer and better defined in the stereo field
Reduced right channel by 8% to centre stereo image
Applied Noise Print NR on low setting so music quality is not affected
- Some noise remains but it is much better
Equalisation, +2dB (mid) +6dB (Treble)
Re-Tracked to match 'urich21's Set List
- Had to leave some tracks combined to prevent big glitches (d.c. offset?) between tracks
Edited out the very brief cut-off applause fragment between tr09 and tr10
Fixed more than 100 small glitches / thumps, a few remain that I just couldn't locate

Quality: A+ performance, B+ recording quality
---------------------------------------------------

Got this CD by trade as a single track, but thanks to 'urich 21 now have the set list.
The sound was thin and 'boxey' and there was very high noise, but I managed to fix most of the problems (details above).

The end result is an excellent performance and much improved quality especially considering the vintage. I'd never heard the freer version just prior to Wyatt's leaving, but I have to say IMHO they were developing into a wonderful free band and it is such a shame that with such a promising future ahead, they decided to back off into fusion, so...

...Grab it as there is precious little of this great era available - Enjoy !!

Elton Dean - alto sax, saxello & electric piano
Mike Ratledge - Hohner pianet, organ & electric piano
Hugh Hopper - bass
Robert Wyatt - drums & vocals

Here comes a rare enough Soft Machine concert from the famous T taper. In deference to his preference, I choosed not to retrack the files... unfortunately, most of them are badly indexed.
I tried to provide a correct setlist (not too hard as it is the usual march 1971 set) and timings.
The performance is exactly what you can expect from this era : perfect (and not redondant from the others recordings of this month). A pity that this line-up didn't last a little bit longer...
I hope it will be a very good complement to Tom Phillip's series of remaster... This one is a soundboard

Changes Made (Nero 7):
Remastered & Retracked to match set list/date kindly supplied by our expert urich21

(Full details below)

Quality: Must be worth an A+
----------------------------------

By popular demand from Dimers, who have recently been critical of the T-series although this one does not have the disturbing (high or low) frequencies of others. I've retracked the post by Patabubu (to the details from urich21) and done quite a lot of remastering (details below).

I had thought I'd finished, but then I found an excellent noise print that not only allowed good reduction of noise, hum and the annoying clicking on the left channel, but also IMHO significantly improved the stereo image (the echoplexes are now audible) and the harsh sound (mentioned in OP comments) in high level parts is much improved.

It is a super performance and probably the best quality of the recent early 1971 posts - again making one sad that this great music was apparently hated by 3/4 of this band and the cause of their split just a few months later.

Hope you like it...Enjoy!!

Notes

Soft Machine – Fusion Steams Ahead

Kings Cross Cinema
London, England

7th July 1972

"This Soft Machine gig is significant in that it was the band's first following the departure of Elton Dean and is Karl Jenkins debut live performance with Soft Machine (13) according to Graham Bennett's Soft Machine Family Tree in his biography of the band 'Out-Bloody-Rageous'. Originally scheduled for 17 June this gig was postponed until 7 July due to John Marshall's illness." -- from brainodrain's info.txt in his original DIME upload

The sound quality is not untypical for an audience recording from the period,
but NR and EQ have improved it considerably (by the original uploader).
No further NR or EQing carried out for this re-post.

The line-up for the night at the Kings Cross Cinema was:

Mike Ratledge – Lowery Organ, Piano
Hugh Hopper – Bass
