These Soft Machine recordings for John Peel's Top Gear programme took place in December 1967 and June 1969 when the band was at the peak of their psychedelic revolution and during their first transition towards
an unprecedented form of Psych Rock Jazz. These historical sessions, including a great version of Wyatt's masterpiece "Moon in June", show
the great potential of the band's early line ups featuring Hugh Hopper - bass, Kevin Ayers - vocals, guitar, bass, Robert Wyatt - vocals,
drums and Mike Ratledge - organ, electric piano, flute.
