Soft Machine - Land Of Cockayne download album

Land of Cockayne is the tenth studio album by the jazz rock band Soft Machine, released in 1981. By this point, the band contained none of its original members. The title refers to the medieval land of plenty. The album came about as the result of a project in which Karl Jenkins and John Marshall had been involved featuring top session musicians. The ad hoc band, Rollercoaster, had recently recorded the Stevie Wonder tribute album Wonderin' and decided to record another album together

Complete your Soft Machine collection. If you are looking for the luxurious and idleness all around you. yes Land of Cockayne is the place. The art of the sleeve impress the splendid jam session of each musician on top of stunning orchestration.

LAND OF COCKAYNE is a good album, not a great one, more of a background music but with excellent musicianship, good compositions and great arrangements. A strange way to end the regular SOFT MACHINE carreer, a band with many surprises and so many twists. Last studio album,still having the right be named Soft Machine's work,was released five years ago, and Land Of Cockayne obviously attracted many old band's fans at the time of release. But main reaction on it's music was deep disappointment. Looking from now, this album isn't so tragic,the main problem is it's not Soft Machine's album at all.
