Fav. track - Why Are We Sleeping?
Fav. album - not exactly an album, but their first single, "Love Makes Sweet Music / Feelin' Reelin' Squeelin'"
Fav. thing about - Possibly the best out of Canterbury
Worst thing about - Bad things happen in France.
Comment - They did two alternate versions of "Feelin' Reelin' Squeelin'" under the moniker The Beautiful on an American single, "Shadows In The Sun / Walter's Dream". The B-side appears on Rubble 20; the flip hasn't truly seen the light of day.
"Favourite Track" :
Out-Bloody-Rageous (from Third album)
"Favourite Album" : The first self-titled album
"Best Thing About Them" : all of the members were very talented
"Worst Thing About Them" : the post-7th album era was too jazzy
"Any Other Comment" : so many changes in members and styles .
Fav. Song- Reelin' Feelin'
Fav. Album- One
Best Thing- No one sounded like 'em.
Worst Thing- Lineup changed too much. Didn't have Ayers on vocals more often.
Any other comment- Finally, I always felt if Tomorrow and the Pink Floyd were in then the Soft Machine had to come soon after.
SIR GREGORY WEATHERBY
Wow. The Soft Machine. What do I say? "Why Are We Sleeping" I suppose. Oh, this is hard.
Don't have one anyway.
3--Best thing about...
Two words.....Kevin Ayers
4--Worst thing about...
Two words....... jazz fusion
5--Any other comment.
I probably should not even be posting about the Softies as this is clearly not the kind of 60s music that I enjoy. Elton Dean, oi! And how
did Chas Chandler get mixed up in all this?
Favourite Track: A Certain
Favourite Album: Vol. One
Best Thing About 'em: The Wyatt years
Worst Thing About 'em: The jazz-rock years
Any Other Comment: Matching Mole, which was originally supposed to be a Soft Machine Part 2 band, is actually much better, in my opinion. Check 'em out...vote them in sometime!!
