Peter Jones Great tracks from two days' live performances. Wonderful sound, with enough live ambience without losing any audio quality. Favorite track: The Nodder.

Carsten Pieper Very accessible (and I clearly mean that in a positive way!) Jazz Rock served live by the Softs' legacy band. As the name of the first title suggests (although that calmer track doesn't quite pay that cheque) the songs ares often building nicely on a riff and then developing (as in The Nodder). Nice interplay by the whole band!
I found it hard to pick a favorite, so I like to mention the beautiful Song Of Aelous, as well! Favorite track: The Nodder.

about

On their rousing new live disc for MoonJune (recorded during the European tour in October of 2009), Live Adventures, Soft Machine Legacy covers more vintage Soft Machine repertoire than on any of their previous releases. Creating fresh arrangements and new instrumentations like only they could, SML reinvigorates this classic songlist -- giving the tunes intriguing new dimensions, different textures, and decorating them with expansive, protean improvisations of the highest order. Both longtime fans and new converts alike can take heart in the knowledge that the Soft Machine family tree -- with its deep roots in the musical revolution of the ‘60s -- continues to sprout healthy new limbs well into the new century, showing no signs of slowing. The band's huge worldwide fan base still can't get enough of these legends, and Live Adventures caters to that demand in supreme fashion -- breathing new life and fresh fire into this classic Soft Machine songlist.This is no historical rehashing of Soft Machine, but a living, breathing music that is as vital and revelevant today as it ever was.
