The Soft Machine The Soft Machine Vol1
When we got back my girlfriend was anxious to Samo DJ Tai Po Kau her album but I told her I just want to hear how mine sounds, just for a few minutes. From the first minute of hearing this music something came over me - my first inclination was to cry.
I was speechless and overwhelmed with emotion at how incredible and unique this music was. I was so taken that I secretly harbored resentment at my situation The Soft Machine The Soft Machine Vol1 stuck for the weekend without being able to immerse myself in this album. I feigned interest for the remainder of the weekend and tried to interact and participate with my girlfriend but I couldn't get those few minutes of music out of my head, especially when Hugh Hopper's Bass came in and the horns were introduced behind Mike's Fuzz Organ solo, especially when he starts to rip.
It's the melodies, the choice of notes and scales that he plays. I am a guitarist and I couldn't care less that I am not hearing guitar solos. When Mike Ratledge plays, you don't need guitar, he is more than enough.
When I finally broke away from that weekend Jacques Coursil Unit Way Head came home and listened to the rest of the album - that guy was right, this still remains today as one of my all-time favorite albums.
It has a very British psychedelic sound within a Jazz setting. Each song flows in to the next and takes you on a trip of sonic realizations. The band at that time was characterized by exceptional uniqueness as a result of Robert Wyatt's voice and Jazz Drumming, Mike Ratledge's Piano and Fuzz Organ and Hugh Hopper's Fuzz Bass - this was at a time when hardly anyone else capitalized on distorted Bass.
It is unfortunate that this incarnation didn't last longer in the band's history. As far as the re-mastering goes, it is only obvious in particular passages where you can definitely hear more separation of instruments, but, overall, it sounds the same The Soft Machine The Soft Machine Vol1 I always knew it to be, which is a good thing because I have heard re-masterings that ruined classic albums for me because the whole character of the music was changed and it didn't Nirvana In Utero 2013 Mix The Soft Machine The Soft Machine Vol1.
If you are hungry for good music - Soft Machine will satisfy your hunger. And this Re-masteres enhanced re-release is the best out there!! Great music for very progressive band made better by remastering. Interesting music. Fantastic drumming. Eclectic and fun, this is a must for fans of the first album. But those who prefer the Soft Machine of the later period will probably find this a bit tiresome.
One person found this helpful. Format: Audio CD. Volume Two is more of the same from the first Soft Machine record. The difference between this one and the first album is that Kevin Ayers is gone and Hugh Hopper took over on bass. Like the last album, I figure on the vinyl, there are probably only three or four actual tracks. The vocals of Wyatt are the same as on the first, just another instrument in the band.
The overall sound is great like the first album with a rock, jazzy feel and a bit of beatnik thrown in. Taking it as a single piece of music and getting a smile out of the quirky song titles for individual parts, this is just plain good stuff.
Highly recommended. How The Soft Machine The Soft Machine Vol1 wish they'd made a The Soft Machine The Soft Machine Vol1 more albums The Soft Machine The Soft Machine Vol1 this vein! But at least we do have this one album, one that remains a seminal recording from that time, one that I never tire of hearing -- most highly recommended!
