Liner Notes
"THERE IS MUSIC FOR THE BODY AND THERE IS MUSIC FOR THE MIND. MUSIC FOR THE BODY PICKS YOU OFF THE FLOOR AND HURLS YOU INTO PHYSICAL ACTIVITY OF WHATEVER TYPE YOU MAY PREFER AT THE MOMENT. MUSIC FOR THE MIND FLOATS YOU GENTLY DOWNSTREAM, THROUGH PLEASURABLE TWISTS AND TURNS, UPS AND DOWNS, RAPIDS AND CALM WATERS. THE SOFT MACHINE PLAYS MUSIC FOR THE MIND. IN ITS STRICTEST SENSE, IT MAY IMPOSE SOME CEREBRAL RESPONSIBILITY ON THE LISTENER, BECAUSE YOU CAN'T REALLY HUM ALONG OR HAVE THE TUNE PASS THROUGH YOUR HEAD AS YOU WALK IN THE STREETS. BUT THE ULTIMATE GOOD FEELING THAT THE MACHINE GENERATES WILL ALWAYS REMAIN WITH YOU, AND THE FINAL EMOTIONAL BENEFIT IS WELL WORTH THE THINKING TOLL. SINCE THEIR FIRST ALBUM, THE SOFT MACHINE HAS AGED AND CHANGED. HUGH HOPPER HAS JOINED THE GROUP ON BASS, MAKING THE TRIO TIGHTER THAN EVER. ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENTATION HAS BEEN USED WHERE NECESSARY TO ADVANCE THE MUSICAL MATURITY OF THIS SUPERBLY ADVANCED GROUP. IN GENERAL, EVERYBODY'S HEADS ARE MORE TOGETHER. AFTER HEARING THIS ALBUM, YOURS WILL BE ALSO."--BACK COVER PRODUCED BY THE SOFT MACHINE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: MIKE JEFFREY COVER AND LINER DESIGN: BYRON GOTO/HENRY EPSTEIN PHOTOS: ERIC GOTO
