SOFT MACHINE : Roundhouse 7/2/71

Good quality recording from the Roundhouse, Feb 1971, with a great tracklisting.. This has been due for posting for a while now, though I've just converted it to MP3 and got round to sorting out a new Sharecode.

This again features the Hopper, Wyatt, Ratledge & Dean quintet.

Published / posted in conjunction with sister blog "Hugh Hopper's Fender Jazz".

Converted via media.io/ & boxoft flac - mp3 freeware. Very useful...

Fur Holger...
