A remastered 2CD edition of the 1975 album Bundles by the celebrated Jazz / Progressive group Soft Machine. The album was the band’s first for EMI’s Harvest and featured a line-up of Mike Ratledge (keyboards), Karl Jenkins (oboe, piano, soprano sax), John Marshall (drums), Roy Babbington (bass) and Allan Holdsworth (guitar).
An accessible collection, Bundles showcased Holdsworth’s considerable guitar playing talents and opened a new chapter for the band. The album attracted much praise, especially the stunning five-part piece 'Hazard Profile’. Following the release of Bundles in March 1975 the band embarked on a busy touring schedule, but they soon faced the blow of Allan Holdsworth departing suddenly to join The New Tony Williams’ Lifetime.
Holdsworth was replaced by John Etheridge, and Soft Machine toured extensively for the remainder of 1975. A fabulous concert at Nottingham University on 11th October 1975 and featured much of the material featured on the album, along with early renditions of some pieces which would be recorded for the band’s 1976 album Softs.
