    I saw the S.M. at the Civic Opera House in Chicago way back when. They were the lead off band for Jimmy Hendrix. It was a real shocker for us when the S.M. Drummer walked off stage at the end wearing only a flesh colored swim suit. Now, as Cole Porter wrote, 'anything goes'.

    My favorite tracks on this album were the instrumentals, this and "Priscilla", I believe, was the name of the other one. I used to trance out to this during my college daze. My fave Soft machine song is "Hibou, Anemone, and Bear".
