Following "Floating world live", here's another Soft machine live circa 1975, with fairly good sound quality. Featuring material from both "Bundles" and (future) "Softs", the record is long (73 minutes). This document proves one more time that the (second) Soft machine was still a major jazzrock band with impressive technical skills. Among others, an excellent version of "The Man Who Waved at Trains", a more atmospheric mood with "The Floating World" and a fifteen-minute closing jam, "Sign of Five".
