Soft Machine - In Concert from The Paris Theatre, London - July 20, 1972 - BBC Radio 1 - In Concert series –. Soft Machine tonight. By 1972, the Soft Machine of opening for Jimi Hendrix, and who boasted such figures as Kevin Ayers, Daevid Allen and Robert Wyatt were long gone. This concert also comes around the time of the release of Five, which was in marked contrast to Soft Machine 4, the last album featuring Wyatt and his influence with more Psych-based themes and instrumentation. 4 was also the biggest selling album Soft Machine had, and so there was much anticipation over the release of 5. But with this new direction, there was a great sense of disappointment, as is clearly evidenced by the tepid applause from the audience by the end, and the album didn’t sell well. Subsequently, Soft Machine during the post-4 period is often dismissed by critics and fans.
