Between bunch of Soft Machine's archival live releases Virtually has its own place. It was recorded in German radio during band's European tour 1971 - last concerts with Robert Wyatt. Differently from their same time recordings band plays as quartet here - with Ratledge,Hopper and Elton Dean on board besides of Wyatt.This classic line-up sounds quite unusual here though - no reeds arrangements, a very few Wyatt singing (more - scats)and extremely high energy!

  • ELTON DEAN, alto sax, saxello, electric piano
  • MIKE RATLEDGE, electric piano, organ
