Esoteric Recordings Is Pleased To Announce The Release Of A Newly Re-Mastered 3 CD Clamshell Box Set; The Harvest Albums 1975 1978 By Soft Machine. After Recording Five Highly Acclaimed Albums For The CBS Records Label, Soft Machine Signed A Licencing Deal With Emi'S "Progressive" Imprint, Harvest Records In 1974 And Would Record Two Further Studio Albums And A Live Album For The Label Over The Next Three Years. Bundles Was The Band'S First For Harvest And Featured A Line-Up Of Mike Ratledge (Keyboards), Karl Jenkins (Oboe, Piano, Soprano Sax), John Marshall (Drums), Roy Babbington (Bass) And New Member Allan Holdsworth (Guitar). An Accessible Collection, Bundles Featured Holdsworth'S Considerable Guitar Playing Talents And Opened A New Chapter For The Band, And Attracted Much Praise Upon Release.

The Album Also Saw The Final Appearance On A Soft Machine Album By Mike Ratledge Whose Synthesiser Contributed To The Pieces 'Ban-Ban Caliban' And 'Song Of Aeolus'. Soft Machine'S Final Album For Harvest Was The Classic 1978 Live Record "Alive & Well Recorded In Paris". The Band'S Line-Up Had Changed Once More By This Point And Comprised Karl Jenkins (Piano, Electric Keyboards, Synthesiser), John Marshall (Drums), John Etheridge (Acoustic And Electric Guitars) And New Members Steve Cook (Bass Guitar) And Ric Sanders (Violin). The Album Was The Result Of Several Nights Of Excellent Concerts Staged At Le Palace Theatre In Monmartre, Paris In July 1977.
