Review by Dick Heath
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Jazz-Rock Specialist
4 stars This is a legitimised bootleg of the music from 'Volume 2', recorded live in the famed Paradiso Club in the Netherlands. Here Machine are road testing the music of 'Volume 2' only a few weeks after escaping the tighter arrangements/constraints required to record the studio version. And how this album differs from the studio recording: the only Machinists present are Wyatt, Hopper and Ratledge, so inevitably the arrangements are changed and too, the set order varies. This is one of my top 3 Machine albums, on which you'll hear Robert Wyatt, the jazz drummer - he really swings like nowhere else. Indeed this the album for Wyatt the vocalist. Hugh Hopper, is magnificient providing his usual understated, unhurried and original bass lines. Oddly then and one complaint about this album, I find Mike Ratledge to be dozing for almost half the set, his organ set to 'noodle' for a backing - while Wyatt and Hopper are providing a surplus of musical entertainment. But the wait for the wake call is worth it. Everything gels about 20 minutes or so in, with the musical explosion of "Hibou anemone & bear". Ratledge shudders awake as a sleeping giant, his soloing there on in is magnificent - keyboard work light years ahead of Keith Emerson. I'm normally left breathless and I have to play the album through again. A brilliant interpretation of the music of 'Volume 2'.

Footnote: thank goodness somebody recognised that this recording is a valuable historical document, showing an aspect in the development of a most important British band, and have given us a legitimate issue on CD. Another surprising thing about this album, is the high quality of recording especially for a late 60's live taping - in many respects, this shows up the rushed job made of recording the first Soft Machine studio album - this has to be remastered soon - please!

3 stars Originally released as a bootleg before eventually getting a legitimate release, Live at the Paradiso captures the Softs during the era of Volume Two, and its track list is more or less identical to that album - though unfortunately it begins abruptly in the middle of "Hulloder", presumably because the earlier part was either not recorded or was lost. The sound quality is at best average, betraying its bootleg origins, and more concerningly the mix is somewhat unbalanced; Wyatt's singing, Ratledge's organ and Hooper's bass all from time to time get completely overwhelmed by Wyatt's drumming. That said, because the drums are so prominent in the mix and recorded reasonably clearly, the album provides a great showcase for Wyatt's jazz-influenced drumming skills. Worth it if you like Volume Two and want a somewhat different take on the same material, but go for Volume Two first.

5 stars Amazing. Best line-up. Soft Machine as a trio is one of the greatest bands from the late 60's. Most of the songs played on this concert are my favourites.

3 stars Definately worth having for SM fans. Yet, as the band members note, the performance is a bit 'patchy', obviously played at too high a volume, very loose, with very few vocals. As an early live Soft Machine document, however, it is priceless. ... (read more)
