The Jenkins -penned angular and propulsive opus "Hazard Profile" introduces Holdsworth 's mind-boggling, lightning-fingered The Floating World - Soft Machine - Switzerland 1974 in all its unstoppable force -- and with his later signature fluidity not quite fully in place, his picking actually has some extra bite -- but unlike the studio version on Bundlesthis "Hazard Profile" also offers up some classic The Floating World - Soft Machine - Switzerland 1974 sounds in Babbington 's fuzz bass a clear tip of the hat to Hugh Hopper given a full airing on the Babbington solo showcase "Ealing Comedy" and Ratledge 's burning organ tone.
And as for the "seeing," the DVD video is essential; it's a five-camera shoot with -- for the most part -- each camera focused where you want it to be: on the musicians who are actually playing. Sometimes the camera might even get a bit too close to fingers flying on a fretboard or tweaking AKS synthesizer knobs -- but hey, the right guy is usually on-screen and when seen as well as heard, Marshall 's powerful, crisp, precise, and inventive drumwork is particularly impressive to behold.
Be forewarned about rough patches in both the audio and video, but also rest assured that Udi Koomran 's audio restoration and mastering could not be improved upon. And thanks to Cuneiform, you can now get close enough to watch Mike Ratledge 's hands on the keys reflected in his sunglasses. For Soft Machine diehards, what could be better?
