Noisette was recorded January 4th, 1970, by the short-lived quintet formation of the group, this was this line-up's first gig and this is the concert and same recording that gave us Facelift on Third!

Ever wanted to take the Soft Machine plunge all at once for really cheap? Here is your chance. This has all of their classic CBS-era albums (Third, Fourth, 5, Six, Seven) in little slipcased box set. Very basic information (but there is a link to a website with full album credits), but here's what you need to know; this is the newly remastered versions from only a couple of years ago (meaning you get the best sound that these have ever appeared in and you even get the bonus track on '5'). If you want to...

JOHN ETHERIDGE - guitars
THEO TRAVIS - tenor and soprano saxophones, flutes, Fender Rhodes piano, electronics FREDDY BAKER - fretless bass guitar
JOHN MARSHALL - drums
special guest
ROY BABBINGTON - bass guitar (tunes 2 and 9)

The lastest Soft Machine album is, again, a shockingly good jazz/rock album. Shocking that is if you haven’t been paying attention to them in the last four or five years or haven’t had the chance to see them knock it out of the ballpark live, night after

By this time (1973), the band were pretty much a straight-forward fusion ensemble with many of their biggest quirks and oddities excised. And all the quirky old personnel too, with only Mike Ratledge remaining (for the time being at least). Hugh Hoppper left and is replaced by the great (but not as quirky) bassist Roy Babbington along with Karl Jenkins and John Marshall. The band is now 75% comprised of ex-Nucleus players, and while they don't sound like Nucleus at all, they also don't really sound so...

These are the famous (& rather famously disowned by all participants) Giorgio Gomelski deomos from April, 1967, which represent the only recordings by the original quartet formation of the band other than their single: Daevid Allen-guitar, Kevin Ayers-bass/vocals, Mike Ratledge-piano/organ and Robert Wyatt-drums/vocals.
While it is fair enough to say that these recordings are (a) historic, (b) are a must for big fans, (c) allow you to hear some of their later-to-be classic works in their ebryonic...

Licensed from SONY, this is a legit version that is sonically the exact same thing as the latest SONY issue, now out of print.
This was the last release that included bassist/composer Hugh Hopper, & the first that includes Karl Jenkins who replaced Elton Dean. Still on board are Mike Ratledge and John Marshall. Karl Jenkins (along with John Marshall) came in from Nucleus and the band begins to have a bit more of Nucelus' sound.
Originally released as a two lp set, the first lp was a live disc...

Unavailable for a decade, one of the hard to find minor classics of British jazz-rock makes a very welcome return on this new, remastered edition. This is the album after Bundles (and after Allan Holdsworth, and for that reason, it probably doesn't...

A archival classic of stoned, cut-up, tape loop, manipulated, concrete noise, organized sound craziness

"...well worth hearing, anticipating as they do many of the textures later utilized on Soft Machine Third." – Mojo...

Soft Machine were one of the greatest UK avant/jazz-rock bands of all time and their work, whether their earliest performances as a psychedelic band, who were contemporaries of, and shared stages with Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, all the way to being one of Europe's best known 'fusion' bands, their work continues to be name-checked by today's hip experimentalists.

By mid 1973, Soft Machine had gone through a tremendous amount of personnel turnover and a...

Roy Babbington : Electric 6-string bass
Karl Jenkins : Soprano sax, baritone sax, oboe, electric piano

John Marshall : Drums

Mike Ratledge : Electric piano, organ

From their beginnings as a psychedelic rock band in 1966, sharing stages with Pink Floyd and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, to being one of the originators of electric jazz/rock by early 1969, Britain’s Soft Machine were restlessly creative. The Dutch Lesson captures them..

This is the 1st album that cememted the band's underground reputation in 1968. The Soft Machine, their debut, was recorded by the trio of Mike Ratledge-Hammond organ maximus, Kevin Ayers-bass and vocals and Robert Wyatt-drums and vocals.
Recorded at the end of their first US tour supporting the Jimi Hendrix Experience in spring, 1968, it's a psychedelic classic with some nice avant-garde touches.
Remastered and maybe it sounds a little better or maybe it doesn't, but it's basically their live set...

OK, here it is. The landmark. The album. The first album by the 'classic quartet' lineup of the Softs (Elton Dean, Hugh Hopper, Mike Ratledge, Robert Wyatt). Four musicians, four side-long tracks (man, that must have seemed incredibly heavy in 1970 when this was released!).
Soft Machine were so sophisticated so early that I think that that may have actually harmed their chance for popularity in the long run. This received a lot of attention and good press upon its release, even here in the USA (I...

Elton Dean - alto sax, saxello, electric piano
Mike Ratledge - electric piano, organ

This was our second Soft Machine archival release and over 20 years later, it remains one of the great documents of the 'classic quartet' line-up and it is now available again after many years!

Holy moly!
Well, they have been promising that all of these Pilz/Ohr/Kosmiche Kuriere releases have been from Dieter Dirk’s master tapes, and I think that they have just proven it 100% true, by issuing, A FULL HALF-CENTURY LATER, the never released follow up to Gilles Zeitschiff! And with the surprising participation of Roberto Cacciapaglia!
Minds are blown!!

A fantastic archival collection of all previously unreleased early studio and rehearsal (and a few live) recordings featuring the musicians we know as Supersister, but mostly not yet sounding like Supersister; for example, Pinknal Sally sounds shockingly like 1967 Pink Floyd, other than the flute break.
It’s disappointing that the package comes with no info - it makes sense that that is so, since it was released with a book, but since they DID sell it separately, and should have given us a little....

"2018 album from legendary Can vocalist Damo Suzuki. This release finds Damo performing a fully improvised set in studio with German experimentalists Jelly Planet! Incredible sonic quality and authentically mind-blowing explorations of the outer edges of space rock!"

"Live archive release. From the innovative vocalist of legendary Krautrock group, Can, comes this incredible live album recorded in the Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London 2007.
This amazing performance combines Damo's inimitable, improvisational vocalizations with a modern classical string quartet to create music that defies categorization and is utterly riveting.
Damo was born in Japan but spent the late ‘60s wandering around Europe and ending up in Germany. When Malcolm Mooney left..

The famed and great vocalist for Can during their heyday has carried on for decades now performing improvised music with a revolving cast of players. This is his latest.

Dirk Dresselhaus/Schneider TM on the concert: "I find it fairly difficult to say something about how the music in this concert came about, cause we didn't plan or rehearse anything and hardly were able to hear each other on stage. Wherever it came from, the energy and course of this concert is very much based on group dynamics and

Electronic Meditation is the quite wild first release by Tangerine Dream, recorded in 1969 and released in 1970 on OHR. Unlike their later albums, there are no synthesizers here, only lots of 'effects' and imagination. The band is a trio of Edgar Froese..

“Exit marks the beginning of a new phase in Tangerine Dream's music: Gone were the side-long, sequencer-led journeys, replaced by topical pieces that were more self-contained in scope, more contemporary in sound. Johannes Schmoelling's influence is really felt for the first time here; Tangram, for all its crispness and melody, was simply a refinement of Force Majeure's principles, and the soundtrack to Thief not an album proper. On Exit, listeners are introduced to electronic music's next generation...

“Two CD + two DVD (NTSC and PAL) set. September 8th, 2016 - the open air live concert by Tangerine Dream at the amphitheater Augusta Raurica in Switzerland (close to the city Basel) was one of the first concerts TD performed after the death of Edgar Froese, head and founder of TD. The beautiful sight surrounded by an ancient Roman village, the fantastic ancient amphitheater created a very special atmosphere for the magic music. Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane performed a great...

“Digitally remastered edition. Logos Live is the eighteenth major release and fourth live album by Tangerine Dream. It was released in December 1982. It is a live album from the concert at the Dominion Theatre in London, England. Much like Tangram with short movements connected by atmospheric segues, Logos captured a period of Tangerine Dream's evolution from experimental to melodic, documented also by their soundtrack to the motion picture Risky Business a year later.”

“Logos introduced Johannes Schmoelling to the TD lineup (not counting one very rare LP). and the change while not a huge departure from their established form is noteworthy. With Logos, TD began adding more, and more significant, "hooks" to their compositions. Perhaps a more controversial addition is the sampled saxophone, which would be a point of contention in later years due to the actual saxophone contributions of first Hubert Widner, and then of Linda Spa...

Ricochet originally released as Virgin V 2044 in 1975.

The Sessions releases consist of the current line up of Tangerine Dream: Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane performing ‘instant live compositions’ (meaning improvising these sets], generally recorded in concert, just as Tangerine Dream did all the time in the 70s.
Really good and while it won’t make you forget Ricochet, Rubycon or Zeit, all of these are significantly greater than they have any right to be. Conditionally recommended.

Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, Laguna Hill, CA, June 6, 1986.

“This was a bootleg recording circulating with the title that it carries now and became obsolete when it came out as a part of the Tangerine Tree and Bootmoon series.
Sound quality here is far better than the Tree version and from the old bootleg; probably genuinely derived from a radio broadcast as claimed…
This is a 1986 Underwater Sunlight tour with Froese, Franke and new recruit Paul Haslinger.”

As far as I can tell, this is a soundtrack that the band did in 1981 (in other words, still very much in prime-era), which was never released other than as the film’s soundtrack! Which means it should feature Chris Franke, Edgar Froese, Johannes Schmölling, so better 41 years later than never!
It was hard for me to find much meaningful information about this, but I did find a youtube page that claims to be the entire unreleased soundtrack of 40 minutes. And it was pretty good and pretty creepy. Is...
