Title - 'Live at the Baked Potato'
Artist - Soft Machine

In 2018, Soft Machine (Roy Babbington, bass - John Etheridge, guitar - John Marshall, drums and Theo Travis on saxes, flute, and Fender Rhodes) released the well-received album called Hidden Details and following that release, they toured the world in 2018 and 2019.

Anyone who went to see them were treated to an excellent set of jazz fusion and rock of old and new tunes, played with tremendous fire and drive.Live at the Baked Potato (out now via MoonJune Records) is a quite magnificent 12 track follow-up; and one worthy of a broader listenership.

1. 'Out-Bloody-Intro'
2. 'Out-Bloody-Rageous, Part 1'
3. 'Sideburn'
4. 'Hazard Profile, Part 1'
5. 'Kings And Queens'
6. 'The Tale Of Taliesin'
7. 'Heart Off Guard'
8. 'Broken Hill'
9. 'Fourteen Hour Dream'
10. 'The Man Who Waved At Trains'
11. 'Life On Bridges'
12. 'Hidden Details'

Containing several Soft Machine classics from the '70s in addition to new tracks from their Hidden Details album of 2018, this live recording from their 50th Anniversary World Tour 2019/2020 (produced by Theo Travis, co-produced by Soft Machine themselves, and with Leonardo Pavkovic acting as executive producer), opens with the translucent majesty of 'Out-Bloody-Intro' and then slides seamlessly into the funky jam of 'Out-Bloody-Rageous, Part 1,' the drum-led 'Sideburn,' and then bring us both the Hendrix-esque (which is no surprise, as they were contemporaries of, and shared stages with, Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd and the Jimi Hendrix Experience back in the day) and sax-enfused 'Hazard Profile, Part 1,' and the laid back 'Kings And Queens.'

The quietly progressive, yet always thoughtful 'The Tale Of Taliesin' is then followed by the short, but pronounced guitar work of 'Heart Off Guard' and the dulcet prog flight of 'Broken Hill,' backing those up with the foot-tappin', flute enhanced wonderment of 'Fourteen Hour Dream.'

Creating their own train-like ambiance, next up is one of my own personal favorites, the free-wheeling ambiance of 'The Man Who Waved At Trains,' with the album coming to a close on the soaring sax delights of 'Life On Bridges,' and then the seven minute long, free for all jam, 'Hidden Details.'
